I have got 3 transformations for you!
Let's get right to it, shall we?
First up is this dresser that I got off of freecycle!
It was in great shape! Always a plus.
Then I also have this little table to show you.
Is that not a pitiful looking table?
Then here is the chair also got off of freecycle.
I actually got two of these chairs. One is being picked up tomorrow. Yeah!
So here are the afters!
I will start with the chair and the pitiful side table.
For the chair, I spray painted it heirloom white, glazed it, distressed it, and then found this fun paisley fabric!
Then for the pitiful side table I painted it Sherwin Williams Cloudburst.
Here ya go!
When I put this picture on craigslist I got multiple offers for my lamp.
Sorry, not for sale! Got this baby and its twin at the local Habitat for humanity restore! Love that place!
Here are some close ups to the chair.
I just love this fabric!
And now for a close up for the table.
Now the dresser.
First I striped the top which had the thickest coat of poly I have ever seen! It took forever to get that top ready to stain.
Then I used my scotch blue painters tape and went to town.
Then I painted it a taupe/tan color called puppy paws.
Love that painters tape!
Once that paint dried, I sanded it and then glazed it.
Love the curves on the front.
The drawers were in great shape!
The problem with this dresser is that I wanted to put cute turquoise knobs on it, but since the drawers were so big all the knobs I got just looked so dinky. So no knobs was the way it ended up.
But it sold, so I guess they didn't mind the no knob look.
Fellow Chicagoans. The chair is still available for $75.
I am linking to these parties.
