Happy Monday everyone! We have had absolutely gorgeous weather here! So I took advantage of it and got outside and did some makeovers!
Some of these things I have had for quite a while, I am just now getting them made over!
Here is a little chair that I got quite a while ago. It had an orange looking finish with some green paint peeking through.
After. I think I can see a prim Santa or Snowman sitting in this chair…or maybe a prim Christmas doll. Hmmm?
Here is that big bowl that I got at the antique mall.
After. I forgot to take a picture of the bottom…Oops~
Here is a Kleenex box that I got at Goodwill for $1.00
Before. This was after I sanded off all of the shiny varnish~
Remember this shelf from the antique store?
After. I am not too happy with the way this one turned out. It may be getting another coat of black paint. Hmmmm?
Here is a Munsing bowl. I don’t have a before picture. This bowl was slathered in a black oil paint. I just started right in on the removal process and forgot to click a pic! That black paint was a CHORE. And underneath all that black paint there were some “beautiful” strawberries! *Ugh*
Here it is all sanded. I actually like how some of the black paint stayed in the cracks.
After all of that…I knew that I was not going to paint it again. I decided to stain it with a dark walnut stain. Back to it’s “original” condition.
Here are a couple little boxes I made over. My husband asked me “What are you going to do with those”? To which I replied “I have no idea yet, but I will think of something”! :)
Before. The spoon rack I will share later. I am not quite finished with that yet.
Well, that is what I have been up to. More makeovers to share soon! I am on a roll! It is amazing once I got started on them Saturday I just did one right after the other. I would put on a topcoat while something else was drying, sanded while stain was drying on something else etc. It was a fun day! When I started out I never intended to do that many makeovers!
Hope you all have a wonderful Monday where ever you are! Another beautiful day here, have to enjoy them while they last! I am sure chilly temps are on the way!
Until next time, take care. ~Sarah~
