Once upon a time, by the light of a harvest moon...
...the husband and I
went to Home Depot to acquire some antique white paint.
We went home to parent's home to do a project on a piece of furniture that my sister got for us. Her mother and law likes to collect things and store them in her garage. When my sister spotted this lovely find in the garage she new I would love it and fix it up real nice like.
Every time I go antiquing I always envy all of the shabby chic furniture. I thought to myself,
"How hard can it really be?"
So, I googled the directions on how to shabby chic a piece of furniture and got to work.
Take a break and eat a Banana Split.
Meanwhile, my sister was working on a beauty of her own. Her friend Ashlyn made the stencil to go around the table. It looked beautiful.
Ok, back to our project.
Only sand the parts where the piece of furniture could have been bumped or hit or rubbed up against. This is what makes it look more authentically vintage. I used a medium grade sand paper to rough up the edges.
I'm in love.
Then we brought it home and I fell more in love.
We found this glass knob at Hobby Lobby. Oh, my beloved mustard color.
So, now we have a brand new gorgeous piece of furniture for the cost of paint and a door knob. Thats the bomb.
What's not the bomb: getting to my video recording session Sunday afternoon and realizing that I still had paint on my legs. Good thing they only filmed from the waist up.
