We found this dresser at a garage sale. See below it was pretty messed up. That drawer to the side would not even fit into its spot.
Its mahogany though and Mr. Sensible sanded down the top. (he likes sanding I. DO. NOT.) It turned out so pretty. I just put a clear Poly on the top of it. I painted the body of the piece with Sherwin Williams Crisp Linen and the drawers with Benjamin Moore Lenox Tan. Distressed it and put on a clear wax.
It has come to my attention that posting once a week is making me really far behind on project sharing.
Or I am producing a larger quantity of furniture BUT I have a stock pile of posts so there will be more posts people. I know you can hardly wait..........
Anyhow here we go with a piece we found when we went to middle GA and bought some pieces of furniture.
This coffee table has great detail on the sides of it and is a bit higher than most older coffee table so I thought it would be a good candidate for a Redesign.
I painted it with Behr Ultra Premium mixed in Sherwin Williams color Crisp Linen. Then distressed it by hand so I wouldn't loose all the pretty details. Added clear Wax over the distressing and Poly on the top.
When we went to Chattanooga a few weeks ago we had to stop in some thrift stores and look what I found....
I know they don't look like much two picture frames but I had ideas.....
I painted the first one grey then glazed over it with white, painted the glass with chalkboard paint and we have a great chalkboard maybe for the kitchen?
The second one I painted with Anne Sloans Old White Caulk Paint and distressed it. Then put on clear wax and painted the glass with chalk board Paint. Awesome!
I really like using glass for the chalk paint because it goes on so smooth. I use a small 4 inch foam roller and put two coats on. Works like a charm. I do feel that I have to put a note on the back that the chalkboard is indeed glass so BE CAREFUL don't want to break it.
I recently found a blog about Chalk Ink goes on like paint rubs off with water and won't smudge like the above picture.
I ordered some, as of yet I have not tried it.
Looking forward to my next chalkpaint project to give the Chalk Ink a whirl
