Furniture Flip for Yard Sale

painted_furniture_oct2016b

Tomorrow, my friend K and are going to put our stuff together for a yard sale.

I’ve got house staging décor, shoes, knick-knacks, and everything else to put out there, but my favorite thing is the furniture that I have to sell.

I actually roughed up the chair with another piece of wood, along with sand paper. I used a combination of chalk paint and latex paint before adding Valspar Antiquing Wax and then clear Annie Sloan Soft Wax.

If it doesn’t sell, I’ll try Craig’s List; if it doesn’t sell quickly, then I’ll try to consigning it at my favorite store, the Funky Monkey Vintage Store.

This edge is my favorite feature of the mirror.

 

What do you think?

Did I go overboard with the farmhouse chic?

Chalk Paint Shelves – Creative Friday

new_shelves_chalk_paint1Hi Everyone!

Yesterday I re-finished shelves to put in my craft room and would like to share!

The idea was to use homemade milk paint from an online recipe.

Did not work for me, so I canned the idea and went back to my trusty diy chalk paint.

Loved it!

I added vintage wallpaper that I bought for next-to-nothing at an estate sale. My friend, Joyce let me borrow some wallpaper adhesive to stick the paper to the back of the shelves.

The cabinet had dated and tarnished brass knobs. Rather than going to the store and buying some, I use Royal Decoupage and some scrap fabric that I had on hand. (I think I’ve had the decoupage for over 10 years, and it still works!)

After allowing them to dry, overnight, I trimmed the fabric back and screwed the knobs to the.

Woohoooooo! Happy with the results!
