Guess what today is… it’s Themed Furniture Makeover Day! Once a month my friends and I all do furniture makeovers based on a theme, and this month the theme is Black. (You can see all my previous TFMD projects HERE.)
Here’s the beauty I started with – yep, it was only $5 at a yard sale. My mom picked it up for me, isn’t she nice? 😉 It is low and quite wide…
I painted it in Graphite Chalk Paint® and finished it with dark wax (which makes the Graphite look more black than gray).
I bought some sheet music scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby and glued them in the drawers with Mod Podge.
I love the surprise they give when the drawers are opened.
I also added new hardware (also from Hobby Lobby) – aren’t these key pulls fantastic?
Here’s a closer look…
I added some fun staging with a few of my favorite pieces. This faux suitcase is a pretty place that holds all my paintbrushes. (Shhh that’s a secret!) 😉
And here’s a before/after comparison:
What do you think of the decoupage drawers? I kind of love the look, and I may have to do it more often!
Now, visit my friends themed makeovers below – enjoy!

Jen, those skeleton key pulls are fabulous! Wow, I love what you did with this dresser. $5.00 – wowee, now that’s a score if I ever saw one. Beautiful makeover!
The black dressed up this little table perfectly.

What a fun little table. I have never seen anything like it. It looks fabulous now that its all made over and those key pulls are awesome.

I’ve never seen a piece shaped like your little table. I’m wondering if it was originally an end table or a bedside table? You gave it a great makeover and I love the added touch of lined drawers and unusual hardware.
Nancy @ Slightly Coastal says

You did a great job of updating a bland piece and giving it some character. Thanks for sharing it at Friday’s Furniture Fix! ;o)
Thanks Lucy! 🙂
Shayla Martin says
This is beautiful. I have yet to try decoupage myself yet, but this just inspired me. Now to find some pretty paper. Hope you are having a great week!
Thank you Shayla! Decoupage opens up so many possibilities with furniture makeovers and decor projects – good luck! 🙂
