Furniture re-dos Makeovers

Some Before and Afters….

So I have been busy… some days I’m not quite sure with what… but busy none the less. I DO actually have something to show for it at the moment though: What do you think?

Here’s a bit closer view of the back:


Yes, that is bling….


Here’s the stencil on the seat a bit closer (I did that in Mascara):


some of the distressing- It’s van Gogh chalk paint collection paint in Mama’s Boy under Chivalry (if you were wondering).


So then there was this desk…


Not the easiest to see- there was massive water damage on the top and bumps and bruises all over. Now… she looks like this:


I just drool over the details…

      I actually used Revenge on this piece. It’s a true, deep black. (Think the heart of a scorned woman)

      Mascara is more of a dark charcoal “black” similar to a pencil lead color.

      They’re both fabulous colors that can change the whole look of a piece depending in which one you choose.

    I’m really digging the contrast and teal color you used on the desk!
