Antique Dresser in Old White Chalk Paint

See the before and after of this antique dresser makeover I painted for a client.  girlinthegarage.net

Hi there!  I’m back with the finished dresser makeover of one of the client pieces I showed you last week.  Here’s a reminder of how it started out:

I made a few small repairs and then painted it in Old White Chalk Paint.

This baby wouldn’t go white easily – it took half a can of paint, much more than any piece I’ve painted so far.

Lots of painting, sanding, and mess-making went into this piece.  ;)

Then I lightly distressed it and protected it with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.

I love how the original hardware looks against the white.

Blue Grain Sack Chair Makeover – Themed Furniture Makeover

Hi friend, it’s Themed Furniture Makeover Day!  This month my blogging friends and I are sharing chair makeovers.

Personally I like chair makeovers like this one because they can be pretty quick as long as there aren’t many repairs that have to be done.  Here’s the Before:

I’ve been so excited to use this grain sack fabric that I got on sale from Farmhouse Wares about a month ago.  Also I had the perfect blue in my stash from a Valspar Lowe’s paint sample – it’s called Indigo Cloth.

Paint, new fabric, clear wax – and we have a whole new look.

(You can read my in-depth tutorial HERE for how to do almost any kind of chair makeover.)

I just love the design on the back of the chair and I think it really pops now!

I distressed the wood a little – it peeks through beautifully.

And yep, I totally did a French grain sack table makeover for last month’s TFMD.  I have a new crush on grain sack.  :)

Now head over to my friends’ awesome chair makeovers below and be inspired!

Client Projects

I’m working on several pieces this week – a midcentury table that’s taking too long (bright white = several coats of paint), a chair that’s almost finished for Themed Furniture Makeover Day on Thursday, and two pieces that I’m painting for a client.  I’m showing you the before photos of the client projects today and you’ll see the after photos over the next week or two.

This beautiful piece will be painted in Old White Chalk Paint.

This is an adorable child’s vanity and my client wants it to be painted in raspberry.  I will be creating a custom mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  It will be perfect for a little girl’s room when it’s finished.   :)

Country Grey Chalk Paint Chair Makeover with Bird Fabric

Vintage chair makeover - See how this old Goodwill chair was transformed into this shabby chic stunner!  girlinthegarage.net

Hey friend, how have you been?  This week for me has been full of snow (snowed in, then a snow day from school) and surgery (our sweet boxer had surgery on Tuesday).  I also picked up an antique dresser yesterday that I found on Craigslist and I’m hopefully getting a small dresser today.   (There will be a new Treasure Hunting post coming soon!)  :)

So this chair makeover took me a little longer than usual but it’s all finished now and it’s looking pretty chic if I do say so.

Here’s how it started:

The seat cushion was almost nonexistent so the thin pad and green fabric got the boot.

Normally when I need a new cushion I’ll buy a single square piece at Hobby Lobby for about $5, but this time the seat was a little too wide.  And honestly I hate buying a new cushion every time, so this time I bought the biggest roll of poly foam they had.  I should be able to get 6-8 seat cushions out of it, and it was only $28 – plus I had a 40% off coupon from the Hobby Lobby app on my phone.  Winning  :)

I used the rest of the bird fabric from Online Fabric Store that I had used for this DIY pillow cover.

The chair was painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey, lightly distressed, and protected with clear wax.

The wood peeking through gives it some charming character.

This is the 3rd or 4th chair I’ve put bird fabric on, what can I say?  I like it!

My furniture finds are starting to pile up again and my booth is quite empty… so hopefully I’ll have plenty of new furniture makeovers to show you guys in the coming weeks!

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me today!
