If this piece would have made it to the dump, we would have missed out on this….
After removing the old pieces on the top, I gave her a new one using raw pine 1×6 boards. I painted these with a base coat of milk paint in the color curio. Next the whole piece (inside and out) got 2 coats of vintage blue paint which I sprayed on with my gravity paint sprayer. I wanted a professional finish without brush strokes and my paint gun gives it that flawless look.
I gave the body a light distressing to bring attention to the design on the doors and faux drawers. The top was heavily distressed to let the milk paint under the blue show through..
I found some baskets and painted them to match. I dry brushed the curio color over them to break up the color a bit and added numbers for fun. This piece could be used in so many different ways now… It could be used in a front entry way as storage, it could be used as a sofa table behind a sofa, it could also be a media center… the list goes on :0) !
It’s nice that this piece has gotten a second chance. Most ugly things get overlooked, especially if they’re broken… what was once worthless and useless now has purpose and worth again… and that makes me smile!
Thanks for the visit! I’d love to hear from you all and I appreciate the time you take in reading and commenting!
Before I go I’d like to introduce the latest member of our family. She is just 7 weeks old and her name is Precious…precious she is! She was without a momma and we just can’t allow that, so she was gifted to my daughter for her 12th birthday!
