Cobblestone Bedroom Set

Head over to the Country Chic Blog today to read all about the transformation of these pieces!












Bedroom Set for a New House!

A sweet new client brought me a bedroom set that her daughter has used over the years.  They are moving into a new home this weekend and wanted to update the furniture for this little girl's new room!

BEFORE:




Since we were changing out the hardware completely I went ahead and filled all of the previous holes.


Since this bedroom set was not wood, I sanded really well and did SEVERAL coats of BIN Shellac Primer to make sure we got good adhesion.

The end result- all ready for it's new home!!

Custom Coral Dresser

This has to be hands down one of my most favorite projects to date!  Even after 6 years of painting I never stop being amazed at the power of paint.  Color is such a cheap, easy way to transform a piece of outdated furniture!


BEFORE:


For the color, I decided to be adventurous and mix my own.  I wanted a peach coral that was just a tad darker than Country Chic Sweet Dreams.  


I mixed 1 pint of Sweet Dreams to 4 oz Full Bloom for this shade.  About a 1 to 3 ratio.  After mixing really well this was the result.

Classic White Bedroom Set Update

It's always fun to update pieces that have been with a family for awhile.  It's the cheapest way to get something "new" without having to buy all new furniture.  This particular set was for a new client whose furniture was in great shape but she just wanted to update it.

BEFORE:


We decided to go classic and stick with white.  You wouldn't think this light of a dresser would have such a bleed through problem but it took TWELVE coats of oil based primer to block out the stain that wanted to push through!  In the end it was worth all the hard work and they turned out beautiful!
