I finally have received the push that I needed to get some of my painting projects done! I am now consigning in a beautiful shop, Sister's N Things. Lupe is the owner and the first person I met when I moved to Idaho. She has an adorable shop in Ontario, and I had participated in her sale. After the sale she asked if I would want to consign in her shop!! That was the push! I had a garage full of treasures that needed a little Tender Loving Care. I knew what I wanted to do to transform them, but the question was. . . what was I going to do with my treasures after their transformation??? Lupe answered that question for me.
So, this morning I was up early and jumped right into my project list!! First I had a plate rack with five little drawers that had a dark brown stain finish. I sanded and primed and put a fresh coat of Behr "Cottage White". I realized after I was in the middle of everything that I hadn't taken any BEFORE pics. I know, I know, it helps to see what kind of condition the treasure was in before it found it's new life :) I will try to be better and remember to get the Before pics so I can share :) After another coat of paint I will distress it.
I love the new Cottage look of it. (and yes that is my dining room table I'm working on, that way I can have HGTV on while I'm working :)
Next is a shelf that has two doors with glass inserts. It had a stain on it also and was looking a little sad, but I could see potential. Right now it is primed and I will be painting it black.
I love this black and white toile fabric and I am going to put it on the back of the glass inserts. This piece will be getting distressed also. So Shabby French Chic don't ya think??
I will try to remember to post AFTER pics when I'm done.
