Get creative with that old unused furniture
Can I have your old junky one?”
Fortunately, I now have reason to keep my old junk.
“What was I thinkin’?”
“Yup, yup, I remember that.”
- I hand sanded it with a sand paper sponge to rough up the surface a bit.
- Then I laid the individual pieces on cardboard in the front yard and painted the drawers tan and outside frame walnut brown.
- Before painting the walnut brown, I put a coat of tan on the edges so I could lightly sand off some of the walnut brown edges to give it an antiquey look.
- Since it was really hot outside, some of my spray paint dried in the air before hitting the dresser top, so I sanded it a couple of times in-between coats to give it a smoother finish.
I’m pretty happy with the look. I put it in my new master bedroom. I love it. It looks very expensive – you would never know how icky it was before (except now you do since I showed you a picture).
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a little time, courage, and can of spray paint.
I have kept my theme colors through out the house pretty much the same and just accented in other colors. I love neutrals and it makes it much easier to move deco and furniture around from room to room as needed if there is continuity of basic colors.
What are your basic and accent colors?
