Hello again, sweet friend. Today is one of my favorite days of the month – Furniture Fixer Uppers day! My blogging friends and I are sharing furniture makeovers to inspire you with your own projects.
This month I’m sharing not one but two simple furniture makeovers. My book manuscript is due next week (aaahhhhhhh! Please send good vibes my way!) and I’ve been super busy creating 25 brand new tutorials to be published next spring, so this month I took it a little easy for FFU day.
Simple Furniture Makeover #1:
This vintage bookcase came to me via a Facebook listing. I really liked the curves and thought it could work great for extra storage in a small space.
First I gave it a couple coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Pure White.
And then I lightly distressed it and applied Annie Sloan’s clear wax for protection.
I just love those curves – and the back panel looks like planked wood. It has such a sweet farmhouse look to it, doesn’t it?
Simple Furniture Makeover #2:
This little guy came from an estate sale, and I think I paid $30 for it:
This is another piece that would be great for a small space because it’s not very deep.
It was painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in French Linen and then distressed quite a bit so the details and curves would stand out more.
This one was also protected with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.
These have both already sold. 🙂 I hope you like these simple furniture makeovers. It’s good to mix things up – sometimes I like to be really creative and go all out, and other times the piece just calls for something more simple.
