I’m sharing another well-deserved makeover today!
It was part of this haul:
That day included an estate sale, a few yard sales and one thrift store stop! The large picture on the left was a $5 yard sale find and became a huge chalkboard. The claw-foot console table (see the after here) was a $10 yard sale find and received a frenchy makeover. Both pieces sold in my booth a while back.
This is the 80’s country charmer that’s getting a makeover today:
Ah…80’s décor. We’ll just say it was “homey” and leave it at that shall we?
This was a simple update:
I decided to give this one a simple grain sack stripe in white, using frog tape to create the stripes.
I left the interior as is:
But I did add a pretty lining to the bottom using scrapbook paper and Mod Podge (MP bottom, then apply paper, then MP over…thin coats!)
I love all the extra storage this piece has. It would be perfect in an entry hall for backpacks and what not. It would also be perfect to replace two chairs on one side of a dining room table. Or how about at the foot of a bed to store blankets?
This piece was finished off with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
Thanks for stopping by, beautiful friends! Have a terrific weekend!
