I have been trying to take advantage of the short spurts of sun we have been getting to go outside and makeover a few pieces of furniture I've gathered recently... Most of these pieces will be going to Farm Chicks in June, and I have plenty more to work on!!!
Lately I have been experimenting with brushed metallic paints, and I am really liking it!! I used a champagne color on this chair (I have a pair), then covered the seat with muslin... I am still debating whether to cover the back or leave it as is...! What would you do?
This dresser received a coat of grey on the body (with a whitewash on top), leaving the drawers white. I love how it turned out!!
The trifold mirror just got a coat of cream color paint and a very light antiquing glaze on top...
This chair was already white, and only needed a new seat cover, so I stenciled a piece of canvas and stapled it to the seat!
An old crib headboard becomes an instant chalkboard with some chalkboard paint....
This is one of my favorite transformations.... I had an old wicker bassinet that was broken, so I used the folding legs part and applied it (actually my sweet hubby did... thanks honey!) to the bottom of a large drawer... I think it would be great to use for many different things, to hold toys, magazines, to entertain...!!
Finally, an old vanity bench found at a garage sale received the shabby treatment with a coat of cream paint, some distressing and a robin's egg blue velvet seat cover... Love the transformation!!!
