Hello, and happy Friday! I’m glad the weekend is almost here; I’ve got a lot of painting to do the next few days! But first I’m sharing a makeover with you that I did on a midcentury side table from a yard sale. It wasn’t in terrible shape when I got it, but it was worn and just pretty plain. I decided she needed some beautification.
This gal’s transformation happened with the help of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, AS clear wax, and some wrapping paper from the $1 section at Target. (Yes, wrapping paper!)
First I cleaned the table and painted it in Graphite. This color looks like a medium-dark gray until you apply the wax which brings out the deep hue. You can read all about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and wax in an in-depth post I wrote HERE.
After the wax dried she got some flair. I cut three pieces of wrapping paper and glued them on with Mod Podge. Be careful of bubbles under the paper- go slowly and smooth them out as you go.
I love the surprise waiting when you open the drawer!
Here she is with the drawer closed (still pretty adorable):
I think the makeover did her justice- what do you think?
Have you used wrapping paper on furniture or other decor in your home?
Have a fantastic weekend, friend!
