I picked up this Vintage Waterfall chest of drawers at the local thrift shop.
It had seen better days but I wanted to see if I could somehow make her beautiful again.
I had wanted to save the veneer on the drawer fronts but once I started really looking I could see it was not veneer at all;
but some kind of very thin paper.

Since I knew the drawers weren't going to be salvageable as they were I focused on using my Random orbital sander to take the finish down on the top and the first drawer.

Once the sanding was done I prepped the rest for paint and used some Wipe on Poly to finish the parts of the wood that had been sanded

For the base I used my General Finishes Driftwood Gray Milk paint and gave the whole thing 2 coats.
I just grabbed the old beat up hardware and gave it a coat of

I loved how keeping that little bit of wood tone helped make this dresser pop against the paint.

Small Dresser given a Regal Makeover

Beat up old small dresser given a regency style makeover with general finishes Persian Blue paint

Happy Monday my Beauties!
I hope some of you are feeling spring finally.

We still seem to be stuck in a bit of the inbetween.
We are getting more sun, but wicked winds and cold air.
Of course its soccer season as well so that means lots of sitting out in that cold wind. 
Hopefully soon though it will be warm and much more enjoyable weather.
The weather hasn't stopped the makeovers though.
It just means I have been working quicker during the daytime hours with the help of the garage furnace.
One of those pieces I decided to give a bit of a Regal Makeover.
You can see from the above picture that this piece kinda looked like I feel after a long looooong winter.
:)
It is a bit beat up and tired and feels like I might fall apart at any minute.

But that wasn't going to stop me from making her beautiful again.
You can see here even the top had seen a lot of life.

Thats when I decided to pull out my arsenal of tools.
I grabbed my Rockwell Random orbital sander and got to smoothing out the deep gouges.
Then when that was done I pulled out my General Finishes Persian Blue Paint and gave her a couple coats.
While that dried I simply cleaned up the old hardware and gave it a coat of Gold Spray paint.

It feels so much more springy now too!

Its hard to believe that this is even the same piece.
It was completely changed just by using a bit of paint.

I hope you enjoyed the latest makeover.

Simple and quick Cute Silhouette Easter Bunny art




 Sorry FOLKS, this is a REPLAY week.
So here is a blast from the PAST!
I have plenty to share, Just not plenty of TIME!
So since Easter is around the corner I thought I would show you a quick and easy repurposing craft.

Good Monday Morning my Beauties! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I am busy busy busy, getting the new booth ready for the Grand Opening on Friday March 1st.
I am so excited not only for myself but for all the other NEW vendors coming into the store.
There are a ton of people starting out for the first time..living their creative dream.
Whats not exciting about that?!

Anywhoo..in order to start stocking up on more things I knew I had to get started on my smalls
for the booth. So I thought why not make some Easter stuff.
I had this old board that I got at Goodwill.

I painted over it with my CeCe Caldwells paint.

I then went to my silhouette program and printed out some bunnies.
I used just plain old contact paper to transfer the cut outs to the board.
I then used 3 different colored craft paints to paint in the bunnies.

Here they are, cute little Bunnies, ready for Easter!

One project down, only about 500 more until I am ready.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Before and After Vintage Umbrella Hall Tree Makover

before Pine beat up hall tree umbrella stand makeover general finishes diy painted furniture
Welcome back my Beauties!
It's been a crazy week here with kids stuff and unfortunately a funeral for our beautiful Step Grandmother. 
In the midst of all that I decided to add to the crazy by redoing a piece of furniture.
Sales have picked up and I have already gone through my reserve pieces which is a good thing, but that means painting a bunch of pieces in a short period of time to restock the booth.
One of those pieces was this vintage-ish pine hall tree. 
You can't see from the pictures but all the stain was missing from the feet and had many gouges and scratches.
No better candidate for paint.

As I was looking at the piece deciding what color my daughter suggested white.
You know me.... I very rarely do white.
I love color, but I decided to listen to my daughter.
and gave it a couple coats.
After I was done painting I put the hooks back on and got ready to photograph her.

I gotta say. 
I really LOVE it.
I didn't know how I would feel about the white, but I really think it was the perfect color for this piece.
I think it actually makes it feel more vintage.

My husband even asked if I was gonna keep it he liked it so much.
But as you can see from the picture I had to move my Grandmother Clock that I had redone to photograph it, and I love my Grandmother clock more.
