Here is the bed I mentioned in my last post. I thought it might be fun to show you what can be done with a can of paint or two and a weekend. I got this bed for free, and thought it was great – just not girly enough for my little princess. So, I spruced it up with yellow-ivory tone, and painted on scolls in pink with apple green accents. Perfect for a big-girl bed! I just finished the restoration of an old vanity for the same little girl. One tip: I always use oil-based paint to refinish furniture. It is more durable than latex, and it washes up well.
I love making the old new again – never underestimate the power of paint!
I love to take old, beat-up furniture and give them new life. It’s easy on the budget, and so much fun to create something with some personality! Last year, I got a beautiful wood bed for FREE at the curb, and painted it for my daughter’s first “Big Girl Bed”. Later that summer, I found an old vanity and matching stool at a garage sale. I have finally finished the re-do on this piece, and thought I would post some pics for your enjoyment.
If you have an old piece of furniture you would like to give a new lease on life, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m happy to give you a quote on your project, and offer my design expertise on how to make it your own! I can only paint in the warm months, however, as I do not have a heated shop. Leave a comment about what you think of this makeover. Ayla is just tickled pink with her new desk!
