I could be the worst blogger of all time. I get up early and start painting and don’t stop until I go to bed. . . Unless we are running around Las Vegas picking up cool furniture.
I love that Instagram has web profiles now. Love to see the pics big on the computer!
Huge thank you to everyone who is following us. We are having so much fun!! If you are in Las Vegas, stop by!
Before and After
This is one of most unique pieces I have acquired. I loved the shape, the legs and the hardware!!! I had to have it even tho a couple of the legs were broken and it was missing some of the wood trim. Luckily they had a matching little table they sold me cheap because it was missing a leg – and both of it’s drawers. It had all the trim I needed tho! Maybe when I run out of things to do I will make a little half table with a basket inside.
I decided to do it with chalk paint. I am not patient enough to order it and wait for it to be shipped, so I made my own using Martha Stewart’s Heavy Cream flat paint and plaster of paris. There are several recipes online if you google “recipe for chalk paint”. I will look up the one I used and link to it later.
Chalk paint is perfect when it’s too hot to spray outside. I put down plastic and painted in the house! It was lovely Since I live in Las Vegas, you will probably see a few more chalk painted pieces for the next couple months.
We repaired a few broken legs (Luckily they were in a bag inside the drawer when we purchased) , took out the old burlap in the doors and replaced with wire mesh sprayed with oil rubbed bronze to match the hardware. Sanded the top all the way down and stained with dark walnut. An amazing statement piece that is sure to be the focal point of any room. Unbeatable detail!
