Hello everyone! I am STILL neckdeep in boxes from our move and our list of damaged items is growing every day! (the latest item added, a Pottery Barn ottoman with scratched and dented legs....Frustrating!)
But today my sweet bloggy friend Abbie from Lovin' Our Chaos is coming to my aid and is here at Setting for Four to guest post today! She offered to help me out since blog posting, DIYing and crafting are just not on my horizon right now! But thankfully Abbie has a knockout furniture makeover here that will leave you completely drooling! So here is my lovely friend Abbie!
Hi everyone! I am Abbie from Lovin' Our Chaos, my little blog about life, love and all things craft-worthy. I am also known as mom to my three munchkins and girlfriend to my darling husband. I am a lover of God, life, big bows, feathers and all things sparkly. I'm a little compulsive, a lotta crafty and always busy!
A HUGE thank you to Heather for allowing me to guest post here at Setting for Four! I have been looking forward to it for a few weeks now and am so glad that I can share a little of my creativity here today!
I am eager to show you how I took a piece of furniture that I was about to set out by the curb, and re-vamped it into something that I think is beautiful! I hope you like it as well!
A beautiful piece of furniture was given to me a few years ago, when I was pregnant with my oldest son, Chandler. When we originally received this piece of furniture, it was blue, with hand painted flowers. We planned on using it as a changing station in Chandler's room, so Jeremy repainted it with Ralph Lauren Oyster (too bad they no longer sell this) and painted the embellishments blue. Fast forward 12 years and this piece has been passed down to Moriah and then Lincoln and now it seems we no longer need a changing station, but no, Lincoln is not yet potty trained. ;-)
1. Jeremy took a sander and sanded the surfaces of the piece
2. He then sprayed Killz, a paint primer, over everything
3. First coat of spray paint was purple:
4. Second coat of paint was turquoise
It was this coat, when I finally decided what I wanted the final look to be
5. Top surface was painted purple, body of piece was painted turquoise and then I took paint thinner and went along and exposed the purple. I then took a silver paint and highlighted those areas. Voila!
6. Final step was new fancy hardware! Crystal knobs that I found at JoAnns for $2.50!! Total cost of project was less than $25!!
Thanks again Heather for having me today! And a big thank you to Setting for Four followers for indulging my creative streak. Want to see what I have been doing lately?
I made an adorable little boutique outfit in 30 minutes and would love for you to come have a look! You can also find me on twitter and facebook as well!
