Drab and plain furniture
January 29, 2018
This is what we had started with. It was given to my husband and me from his parents. For a while, it had just been sitting and I honestly didn’t even care what it looked like or if we even needed to do anything about it.
Now I was never really the creative type, I didn’t even think I had a creative bone in my body. I was the one who would prefer to fix problems like, repair cars, for example. After all, I was a mechanic and working on Audi, which was more like a dream come true for me. Enough about that for now.
Once we moved into our house, which by the way sits on only half an acre, a little creativity started coming to me. I finally had my own house and I finally had a vision of what I wanted it to look like. Warm and Rustic. The house itself felt cold and sterile and I’m not that type of person. Using chalk paint and different techniques I can make the house feel more inviting and homely.
With the help of my mom, who is the creative one, I was able to turn this piece from drab to fabulous. All I did was buy my Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is a little too expensive for me but worth it, painted it, and used wood glue to apply these crosses I found at Hobby Lobby.
