Before and After: Furniture Edition

Yay! It’s time for another before and after furniture post.

1. The Find:

We found this dresser and thought it was very unique and had great detail, like the curved front and the flower drawer pulls, but the wood was in bad shape on the top, on the legs, and on the bottom.  So, we decided it needed a paint job.

2. Picking out a paint color:

We’ve been on a green kick lately so we knew it was going to be green. I pulled a couple of images that I loved with some green.

We were looking for a bright green that was way over on the blue side, rather than the yellow side. I love the pops of green in these spaces, which was the goal for the dresser.

 

Here’s the one we landed on:

Kilkenny Green from the HGTV Sherwin Williams paint collection. Kilkenny is a city in Ireland. The paint guy asked me twice if I was Irish. I said no, I just like green.

3. The painting:

We sanded the piece with a belt sander and then primed it. We let it dry then rolled on the paint with a foam roller (supposed to be the smoothest) and brushed on the front. We let that dry for about 3 hours and then painted one more coat. And VOILA; I give you the finished piece:

It turned out even better than we expected and I LOVE the green color.

Here are the flower pull details that we fell in love with:

Before & After: Furniture Edition

It’s time for another Before & After Furniture Edition. This time with a set of four vintage wooden chairs.

The Before:

Although we loved the bright blue fabric, the upholstery was a hack job. There were staples showing (read: GROSS) and it was all puffy in all the wrong places. They were very uncomfortable and the cushions needed replacing.

The Process:

9706425

We had all the fabric removed, the cushions replaced, and we used this polka dot fabric.

The After:

I love how the black and white fabric has a little bit of classic, a little bit of whimsy, a little bit of masculine and feminine, and neutrality. These chairs could fit into almost any space!

Now the chairs are comfortable & beautiful… The perfect combo.Save
