Hey friends! Today I have a quick before and after for you and then you can go about your day as planned!
I needed a simple project after reupholstering two French Provincial Chairs nearly did me in!
I found this little antique chest for $5 at a yard sale right in my own neighborhood this Summer:
Those mirror supports are barely sitting in there. It just about fell apart when I picked it up, but a little wood glue and we’re good to go. Here is the after:
I picked up this beautiful blue called Sonata by Behr in a sample size to try it out, and I thought this was a perfect test piece for it. I made my DIY chalky paint with it of course. I used Annie Sloan clear wax to seal it.
(I made my bed just for you…you’re special like that. )
Perfect for storing a few jewels…
…or for tossing your make-up in.
The drawers are lined with this pretty contact paper I’ve used on several pieces. This role is running dry very quickly.
There was a ring in the top that didn’t quite go away with the new paint job, but those details are what give these older pieces a story.
I replaced the original pulls with these dainty glass ones from Hobby Lobby.
I always love how lightly sanding brings out all the details. (And covers up additional bumps and bruises that happen along the way.)
Who says blue can’t be pretty?
Thanks for coming over! I’d love for you to stay a while. You can see more by checking out my DIY Project Gallery. It has all of my projects in one place!
I’ll be back on Friday with a giveaway of some of my favorite things, including something I redid just for the occasion, so be sure to stop back by! 🙂
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
I love to share at some of these great parties:
