Updated Mid Century Modern Piece

12

April 13, 2015 by Terry

This piece I have had in my garage for quite some time now.  I had brought it home with exciting plans in mind for how I would bring it back to life.  The original finish was in very rough condition and the top had stains from candle wax and a number of deep scratches on it.

This would be the perfect piece for paint without the guilt of painting wood :)

I did have pictures of how it looked before but since it was so long ago I do not know what I did with them.  I will probably come across them after I have long finished this post :)

This started out as a china hutch with a removable top that had sliding glass doors on it.  The top is what was most unattractive about it but the bottom I felt was really very nice on it’s own.  DSCN5105Of course I filled in the holes where the original hardware was and gave it new handles and pulls.  Then the whole piece was sanded and painted with Milk Paint in the color Typewriter.  I used bonding agent in the mix to ensure no chipping would happen.  Mid Century modern furniture does not in any way suit the shabby chic look.  I left the top of it wood, then sanded it and stained it a dark chocolate color which I feel really compliments it and gives it a very classy and elegant feel.

DSCN5088The pulls and knobs are new and I liked that they have a little bit of design to them as well making the whole piece unique in it’s own way.

DSCN5095DSCN5097I love the color of the stain with the black paint.   I found it very difficult to photograph the body of this piece as the white rug kept reflecting off of it.  Professional photographer I am not :)

DSCN5090DSCN5088DSCN5079DSCN5081I am happy to say this piece never made it to my booth at The Creamery… It went to live in a beautiful country home to be used as a media center.  I had the pleasure of delivering it and does it ever look lovely in it’s new space!

  2. Nicely done, friend…talent every way possible! As a matter of fact, expect a question from a blogger who asked me for upholstery advice (haha) and I sent her your way.

  4. I love the wood with Typewriter! I did a small piece in that shade of black – it’s such a great color. And the hardware is just like jewelry :)

    Very pretty. Love the wall with the white and black too! Just a suggestion, you might want to try General Finishes Milk Paint in Lampblack next time. So much easier to paint with than actual milk paint.

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
