Get Out Your Paint Brush! | Easy 20 Minute Makeover

12

December 23, 2015 by Terry

I’m not sure if I got sidetracked or if I was just multitasking, but this is what happened the other day while I was doing some ‘pre Christmas cleaning.’

You know … the kind of cleaning where moving something to clean under it inspires a complete room transformation?

Well, this time it went in a different direction.

I have this table.  This table bothers me but yet at the same time it doesn’t … does that even make sense?

Sometimes I’m okay with it being not painted but then in the next breath it bothers me that the wood tone tends to look a bit orangeish in some lighting.

Well … lets just say I finally took the plunge and painted it!

Right in the middle of vacuuming beside it, I shut it down, whipped out the Fusion Champlain and went to town on it right there in the kitchen!

My reasoning was that while I was waiting for the paint to dry I could finish my house work.  Well … then the broken lamp that was on the table caught my eye and all of a sudden it had a coat of Champlain on it as well!  Oh my garden!  It looked so good!  But the shade no longer matched … turns out I had a little vintage wire shade in the garage that worked out perfectly.

Painting the table and the lamp then inspired me to bring in some dining chairs that I had done that didn’t sell at the market.  I love the blue and white toile on the seats and the chairs were also painted with Fusion’s Champlain but distressed.

Um, yah … my paint brush may have accidentally touched that large candle holder as well.  In my defense, I hadn’t painted anything since the market at the beginning of December.  That’s an awful long time to go without paint on my pants!

I also thought I’d glam the table up a bit and gave the legs a dipped look with some metallic copper paint.  Not sure if I’m in love with it but the more I look at it the more it grows on me, so we’ll see if it stays.

 … I whipped up a couple pom poms to complete the festive winter themed vignette!

Such a sweet little space now and it makes me wonder what took me so long to change the table when everything fell together so nicely.

It literally took 10 minutes to paint the table, 5 minutes for the lamp and candle holder and another 2 minutes to make the pom poms!

I guess you could say it was a 20 minute makeover!  There was no mess either other than cleaning up my brush after.  No sanding or topcoat needed, just paint and go.

Loving the heavy snow resting on the trees outside.

And yes, I did get my cleaning done ;)

It felt good to actually do something for our home for once.  Maybe I will finally finish our antique sideboard now …  we’ll see!

  4. Terry, I think the copper dipped legs are AWESOME!! What a beautiful vignette and I’m swooning over the lampshade on that lamp. It looks like a cozy little spot to sit and watch the snowfall. Very nice and yes please, on the pretty fudge in the tray (assuming it’s fudge and not cookies).

      Thank you! …and to be honest it’s neither cookies or fudge … they’re actually apple pie scented wax melts! lol … but they do look ( and smell) yummy!

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
