So I"m officially in love with redoing furniture.
My husband thinks I'm crazy (but he secretly loves it)
Here is my most recent piece to take on:
Me and my husband picked this up at our church garage sale last summer when we were in desperate need of things for our house. I was NOT in live with it then...
but now... well I see things differently!
I'd have to say that with how it turned out... it may just be my favorite piece we have now :)
Funny how things change like that.
It's got the most gorgeous details. I couldn't wait to get it done.
First I took the hardware off and gave it a good rub-down.
I primed it with Kilz spraypaint to help the color adhere to the glossy surface better.
Then I took Valspar Mediterrean blue and gave it a good coat.
I am so so so in love with this color. It was perfect.
I kept making my husband and his friend come out and look at it. I was so happy :)
Let me tell you... this Valspar spray paint was AMAZING compared to the Krylon I used on my last table. I like the Krylon brand but you could tell a HUGE difference in how it went on with Valspar. I paid like .47 cents more for the Valspar at Lowes. Absolutely worth it.
Look at my amazing little helper:
After it dried, I took my new friend
So I decided after looking over my living room and having other projects in mind, that I wanted to make this our tv cabinet. We have just an old box tv with the VCR and Nintendo and cords laying out everywhere.
The way this table is shaped is perfect for all of that. The tv sat on top (with felt under it to protect my lovely table) then the VCR and all other loose things fit perfectly in it. With it's octogon shape it had room behind the VCR to store an extension cord with everything plugged into it. So I had to figure out a way to get the cords out the back so things could plug into the tv...
this is what my amazing husband did for me:
Yes... he scratched it... :/ Oh well.
And see my little man's fingers? He loves this table.
So the cord comes out all nice and neat and no one see its :)
Isn't it wonderful?
I quite like it.
Oh and while I had my Valspar Mediterrean out, I sprayed down this little trinket:
It's going on my white end table here
Happy Thursday everyone!
