Fabulous Furniture Makeovers

Stacey at Fireflies Chasing Dreams has done a beautiful job rescuing old furniture! She is a new blogger but off to an awesome start.  I love what she’s doing!  Pop over and give her some bloggy love.   I love both of these projects.  Take a look!  Here are her posts: 

One old chair

I found this old chair in a barn. It had seen better days but it was solid.

My daughter & I glued it…

sanded it…
and tadah! after a few sprays of black spray paint & a pretty new seat, we have  a winner!

My Old China cabinet

So I fell out of love with my old china cabinet. She was dull & boring…
So I brigtened her up with, like 400 thousands coats of what I thought was white melamine. Dang, it wasn’t! It was creamy and didn’t go against my nice crisp white wood panelled wall. Grrrr. So I painted another 400 coats of WHITE paint.
I wallpapered her back. I had this wallpaper left over from another project. It was freakin’ expensive$$$. I thought I only needed one roll forthat project but was short by just a hair. Therefore the excess paper & the excess $$$. And I will use every last scrap of the darned stuff!

TAAA-dah! Isn’t she prrruddy?

Here are some of my peonies in an old pee pot….I think that is what it is…

So there it is! My first real entry! After watching for so long,  am so excited!

Fantastic job Stacey!  I’ll take one of each.  I love the chair in black with the new pretty seat and the china cupboard is something on my wish list! 😉  Thanks for sharing your hard work!
