So I got this beat up dresser, beautiful maple, dovetailed drawers and boy oh boy this baby needed some lovin'. Big time lovin!
My creative juices haven't been flowing much in the last little while. Sure, I've been cooking, posting some delicious recipes but I was in the mood, in the mood to get my hands a little dirty and dig through my stash of 'stuff' and create.
I had this project in mind and I wanted to make it a chalk board.
I've used the brush on chalk board paint but thought this time I would try the spray on chalk board.
Holy Macaroni - I'm in love with this stuff!
I found these 2 small pine boxes at the thrift shore, they were calling out for some lovin' & I was 100% inspired so I scooped these right up!
Chalk is everywhere these days and I'm really diggin' the look but for this is wanted something a littler more permanent.
Nothing super exciting, just another item painted and distressed.
This one just wasn't as fun as I wanted it to be....ever have those days?
Shortest post ever !! Just wanted to share another project.
Say 'hi' to the sisters, the 'twins' I called them.
These girls were is need of a magical makeover. Their seats were flat, the fabric was -ummmm GROSS, dirty, smelly, yucky!
I wanted to make them pretty again, they did have pretty lines.
The Dragon Dresser. I call it Dragon because I used Van Gogh Chalk paint in the colour Dragon Gray. You know how some days are good, some days are better and some days are just a little rough. This was one of "THOSE" days. This is how it started - see the bug. I guess I could have photoshopped it out but hey.... this is real life.
I have seen different versions of this floating around Pinterest, mostly using pictire frames. I was at the ReStore the other day and I spied these exactly as you see it in the 'before picture, $1.00 how could I go wrong?
