The other day my husband and I were in the car heading home and I spotted this lovely but tired side table on the curb.
I yelled "STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!", the car came to a screeching halt,
and she became mine :)
Nice curves and very feminine, she is my kind of girl.
I love spring cleaning...it's not because I like to clean (believe me)but a lot of people want to get rid of their unwanted stuff and such a pretty piece of furniture ends up on the curb. For a girl like me who is always on the hunt for a nice piece of furniture, it's a very good thing.
This time, I mixed some paints to make my own colour and made that into a chalk paint *again*.
I love homemade chalk paint, it's easy to apply, easy to manipulate and breeze to distress and the finish is just lovely.
Here is my recipe for chalk paint if you are interested.
I gave her a goooood cleaning and fixed some dents, and added the same wall paper I used for this dresser on the top and the front.
For the protection of the top surface, Wipe-On-Poly
was applied and the entire piece was waxed to smooth finish.
Also handles were hand-painted and distressed.
Isn't she pretty again?
Mmmmmm these legs.....
It had chippy surface to begin with and instead of sanding,I decided to leave them as is, because it gives the piece more character and I definitely love it this way :)
I still have this paint left so I'm off to finish another side table.
Thank you for stopping by!
