My mom is going to be mad at me for this post. I am missing some before pictures. They were projects I started before my blog, so I wasn't very disciplined on taking those shots. So I'm sorry, and I promise to take "before's" for everything.
On to the pretties!
When I saw this bench I had.to.have.it. It had gorgeous lines and was in great shape! I knew a little paint and fabric would totally make it "me".
So I removed the fabric and check out what was underneath!
I don't care if it is genuine or just for decor, I like it! But the fabric itself was very thin and I wanted this piece to be functional seating. So I did what any blog following, makeover stalking, Miss Mustard Seed super-fan would do. I covered it in a grain sack of course!
For the record, I do rent, so my funky floors are out of my control. I do my best to keep pretty things everywhere to distract you!
I painted this piece with Annie Sloan Old White and finished it with some clear wax and light sanding. I love it and I feel like it is an original, even though it was inspired by this:
Found here at Miss Mustard Seed's blog.
Next up are the lonesome after's. I do not have before pictures, so just picture them super ugly so I look like I did a great job!
This little footstool was pretty funky. I painted it with Annie Sloan Provence, clear and dark waxed, covered it in dropcloth and painted some lines on it to mimic a grain sack. It is even cuter in person! Now it is for sale at Old Glory in Riverside.
Next, is a cute little bookshelf. Someone had painted it with stain. Yeah, funk-tacular! I covered it with one coat of Annie Sloan Duck Egg and left it matte. I love it! I secretly hoping it doesn't sell. Shhh…
Well that's it for the makeovers! Hope you enjoyed! The other day, I teased you with this picture.
I went to a unfinished furniture store and asked if they had any scraps I could buy to use when I teach workshops and such. Not only did he have a GIANT warehouse FULL of scraps, he filled my car up with them and didn't charge me a dime!!
Look at all those legs!!
This picture doesn't do my score any justice. I just called it a "score," I think I'm an addict. And yes, that is a gorgeous footboard and a super chunk-a-licious mini-pillar.
Hope you enjoyed! Until next time folks!
