While all this has been going on I have completed a few pieces. I am going to post pics of before it I have them. I hope to start posting tutorials more once I get these posts caught up a bit. Bare with me :) I have been neglecting my blog for awhile and when you do that is feels impossible to catch up. One day at a time I guess, it will get done! Thanks for stopping by!
First up, here is a changing table someone was tossing out. As soon as I saw it I thought, BAR!! Its from pottery barn and solid wood. I stripped the top, stained and sealed. The rest was painted ASCP Paris grey, distressed, dark waxed and sealed. I love how it turned out!
Here is a cute corner cabinet. I painted it ASCP duck egg, distressed and dark waxed. I covered the back of the shelves in coffee bag and put chicken wire in the doors. Replaced the old knobs for glass knobs.
This was one of my favorite pieces. It's a dresser that sat in my girls room for 2 years unpainted. It's funny how you don't do projects for your own family but others get done :) Anyway, I got a different dresser for them (still unpainted :) I really wanted to do a clean non distressed look for this one. I ended up using General Finishes milk paint on it. The colors were coastal blue and antique white. I absolutely love how it turned out. The top was finished in Kona stain and sealed. I lined the inside of the drawers with vintage looking paper that I found at Tuesday Morning. BEAUTIFUL!! Can't wait to do another one like it :)
The famous coffee tables made from pallets, I do love these! Here is one I made for a clients daughter as a surprise gift. I am currently making myself one, maybe I will actually keep this one, maybe :)
I found this table a a local thrift store. It was pretty beat up but I loved the shape of the legs and it was huge!! I was hoping to talk my hubby into keeping it, I have always wanted a round table. Hard to fit 8 people around a round if you don't have a large space, which I don't. So I couldn't keep her :( I am in love with the transformation and what a little paint and stain can do. Finished with ASCP old white and Java gel stain on top.
Now time for some small side tables, before and afters :)
Wow, that was a lot to post! And to think that is only a very small amount of the pieces I need to post and catch up on. Oh well, maybe now I will keep up with this site. I do hope so. I love it, even if it never gets looked , I do it for me and that's what's important :) If your here looking thanks for stopping by! I will post my next piece once its finished.
