Happy Wednesday to you! Summer is off to a great start and so are the painting projects and furniture renovations. The features for this week are bloggers who shared their painted furniture makeovers.
Repurposed Antique Carriage Bench Idea
Robin from Redo It Yourself Inspirations shared a remarkable makeover on this antique carriage bench that she won at an auction in Amish country of Upstate New York. I’m just a little green with envy but in a good way. My moms side of the family lives in that neck of the woods and I’m told stories about all the beautiful antiques they have collected. This gorgeous bench really says it all.
Painted French Country Style Nightstand
Cheryl from Ruffles and Rifles took a piece of Mid-Century Modern furniture, a sewing table, and flipped into a charming French Country Cottage style nightstand. She is my neighbor up here in Alaska and we both share in this “embracing the process” of turning our houses into welcoming Old World European homes. The struggle is real! Alaska is where the 60’s and 70’s came to die. I’m not joking…but I am. Ah, I can’t be too hard on my home state, though. Alaskans are blessed with raw natural beauty that surrounds us every day. We still have clean unpolluted air to breath and occasionally baby moose wander into our yards.
DIY Rusted Metal Cart
Mary from The Boondocks Blog, a New Yorker who resides in Greece, shared a trash to treasure rusty metal cart makeover. A unique detail in this furniture project is what she used to affix the boards to the cart. Mary also shared an inexpensive two-ingredient recipe that she used to clean and polish the old wood boards. I love how the fresh clipped greens and flowers lend to a Bohemian feel.
This table is quite versatile. It could be used as a beverage station.
Mix and Match Furniture | DIY Table Idea
Sherry from Savvy Apron shared a hand built table that she constructed using two large wooden wire spools that were found in a dumpster. She cleverly added rope detailing and topped the table with glass salvaged from one of her old tables. The DIY spool table was given a paint finish and paired with painted bar height stools in a beachy turquoise color.
