Well it is already 10 days till August! Can you believe that? Summer is passing me by this year-SO fast! BUT it has also giving me a chance to look back and see what I have done the past few years as a blogger and as a DIYer. SO, today I have MY Furniture Makeovers for you. Seventeen altogether. My hope is to inspire you to do your OWN furniture makeover.
You don’t have to have the most expensive paint to paint your furniture. BUT, you can decoupage, stencil it, add graphics, use craft paint and make your own homemade chalky paint. It’s all up to your own creativity.
When I first started painted our furniture, I followed every rule.
You know, sanding, priming, more than one coat of paint. Then I began to express myself more freely with using just flat paint, no priming and even using the primer as the base coat. There have been a few times I looked at my piece and said, “Ugh! Let’s get rid of that ugliness.” And that is what is so awesome about paint. If you don’t like it, start all over.
Here are a few of my furniture makeovers. Enjoy!
Having a day to share my furniture makeovers is fun for me. I see my progress and then little by little stepping out of the box from trends and ideas. I hope todays post has inspired you to do the same.
I would love to hear about your furniture makeovers, bombs and successes.
That’s what it is all about sharing and growing together, right?
Make it a beautiful day!
