Get ready for a flurry of furniture pieces. I'm doing a makeover on my dining room and all of the furniture is getting painted and banged up, Shabby Chic style.
I just finished working on this little console table that I got at Target a couple of years ago.
I painted, I think, four coats to get this completely covered. I had a quart of paint that I bought last year and never used so I pulled that out and used about 1/4 of it. I'm a Lowe's girl so I usually end up with Olympic or Valspar paint. This one is an Olympic color called Dogwood Blossom. It's a creamy white with just a slight tint to it. This will be the color I end up using for my dining chairs and all of the other furniture that'll be in this room.
After painting, I distressed with my orbital sander. Then I added a cute knob that I found at Hobby Lobby. I'd planned on using this knob and it's mate on another project, but it just didn't work out. Luckily, it's is the same color green as my little desk, which is basically in the dining room itself. Oh, I also lined the drawer with some cute scrapbook paper that has the same green. Look at me, gettin' all matchy-matchy!
Here she is sportin' her new duds.
*I'm really good at photographing my Etsy stuff, but I just stink at shooting rooms and larger pieces like these. I'm really trying to get better with it and have even started using a tripod to try and steady things a bit. I know there a ton of tips on shooting rooms out there, I just need to carve out some time to study them and practice.
