Hello lovely Friends and welcome back! Are we really on day #9 already? I’ve got a small makeover for you today, but big on function!
I found this next piece at the thrift store for $6, but it was originally from TJ Maxx according to the tag on the bottom.
Here it is as I found it:
It was probably used for coats if I had to guess. Kind of a cool piece, right?
The color wasn’t very pretty though. It looks like wood, but it was faux. So I decided to give it a little update:
Of course I decided to paint it light…that makes everything better. (And of course because that is what sells!)
But I also removed the mirror…it was cracked anyway, and added these pretty glass knobs:
The hooks got a coat of Rustoleum Blossom White spray paint and a little sanding, and the arched piece got a couple of coats of DIY chalk paint in a 50/50 mix of Behr’s Cottage White and Pure White.
I sanded it a bit also then sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
It’s so much better in white. My Jewelry Tower I shared the other day is perfect for earrings, bracelets, and rings, but not for more than a couple of necklaces. This was a perfect solution for storing those, and it’s pretty to look at as well!
If you missed any of the previous day’s makeovers in this fun series, you can catch up here:
I’ll be here again tomorrow with a new Spring wreath that I made out of this lucky $4 thrift store find:
UPDATE: Yay you can see it HERE now! 🙂
