So here's my second, "I don't have money to buy new furniture so I'm getting creative and painting the old," project within the last two weeks.
This one is my old vanity from high school (it's an antique!) Actually 30 years ago it graced my bachelorette pad. It makes a great little catch all table in my entry way. By the way, pay no attention to the dirty floor behind the curtain! The Great and Powerful Oz is going to paint before she mops.
Hmmm...what to re-do next. I think it will be my old, mis-matched bedroom furniture.
This old thing was transformed by lightly sanding the top, a coat of Kilz (2 hour drying time) then two coats of Blade Green paint. I antiqued the finish with a Walnut polyurethane stain by just wiping on with a cloth and rubbing back off, and viola!
My favorite part of my new hall table is the picture of Clara Jane that will sit atop it. Love my Garden Girl table.
