Continuing with the recap, today I am sharing the top painting posts for Shoppe No. 5 in 2018. I really enjoy transforming a piece of furniture from old and drab to new and fab (I couldn’t resist). You have to admit the power of paint is amazing.
The first furniture post in 2018 is a dresser I found in my neighborhood. It sat in my garage forever. At the time I still had the booth so I hired a neighbor to take the dresser there to paint. I did the drawers at home. The French script on the drawers set it apart. When it was done it sold so quickly.
This is a little chair I found at Good Will. For some reason, I was drawn to it. I thought what in the world would I do with it. If you find a little chair buy it. It can be used in vignettes around the house.
The next post isn’t really a furniture painting post. It is more of a decorating post showing how all of the handcrafted things can add warmth and charm to your home.
I love the color of these tables. Normally they should be sprayed. But using the right paint made the job easy and they came out so good. How did I do it? With a brush!
I bought this side table at a garage sale. It is a good example of how paint can transform a piece in 5 easy steps.
It is always a challenge to create a piece of furniture from bits and pieces of furniture. And it is so much fun. I used Old Fashioned Milk Paint. Did you notice it isn’t chippy? By adding Extra Bond the paint will have minimal to no chipping.
This is one of my personal favorites. This broken mirror is also a treasure I got from my favorite salvage store, Used Stuff. I remember seeing it when it was far more expensive than what I bought it for. Since they were going to shut down I got a bargain.
Now doesn’t this stool look cute? Believe me, it didn’t always look this good!
Sometimes it is a simple little change that makes all the difference. That is what I did going from summer to fall.
This mirror was a shabby looking thing. Maybe that is why it gave me the inspiration to make it shabby chic!
Here is another transformation that went from a mustard yellow color to a clean crisp white. The before is a table that needed to become a cottage style table.
Do you love to see how people decorate? I enjoy it. And it can be so inspiring. I especially like the ones with things collected over time. Do you? My holiday kitchen tour is just that. You will see some new things I made this year. And other things that I have collected throughout the years.
