I have something really fun to share with you today! Have you discovered Larissa from Prodigal Pieces yet? She recently created this unique red VW dresser, BEEP II, and one lucky person is going to own it.
We often talk about giving furniture an aged look with dark wax or a glaze, but did you know you can get a similar look just with paint? By layering paint colors, you can create beautiful depth and detail on your pieces.
This project is a super simple tutorial for adding detail to furniture projects with washi tape. We used it to add a pop of color to the drawer on this little white table, and wanted to show you how easy it is.
Do you love a good blue furniture makeover as much as I do? It’s one of my favorite paint colors to work with, and it doesn’t matter which shade either. Dark or light, any shade of blue seems to compliment the furniture you put it on. I’ve put together a list of 25 gorgeous blue furniture makeovers from some of my favorite furniture-painting bloggers. Check them out and let me know which is your favorite.
Happy Tuesday! Things have been crazy busy around here lately. My oldest is starting kindergarten this week. He’s doing the half day program so I’ll still get to hang with him for most of the day, but he’s super excited about starting at his new school.
Today’s project is a fun little challenge sponsored by the lovely folks at Hickory Hardware. Here’s the details: Hickory Hardware contacted us and 8 other DIY bloggers and asked if we’d like to participate in an IKEA Rast Hack challenge. They sent each of us an IKEA Rast dresser, hardware from Hickory Hardware, and a gift card to Menard’s to purchase Pittsburgh Paint & Stains, and any other supplies we wanted to use.
One of my favorite things about refinishing furniture is getting to choose the hardware. It’s the finishing touch. The icing on the cake. The perfect necklace with your favorite dress. Okay, just kidding with all the analogies :). Let me share with you my master list of places to find furniture hardware.
