MAKE-OVERS and WHITE WEDNESDAY!

WARNING!!! This is a LONG POST with LOTS OF PICS!!
I recently had the fun of doing Make-overs for a couple of my wonderful clients!
WAIT!!!
I didn't make-over the clients....I made over some of their furniture..that sounds better!
Okay first off is Monica's coffee table! Already painted a fantastic brown base coat~
All I had to do was the topcoat and some distressin and.......VOILA!

The distressing really made this table come to life because of all the nooks and crannies it has!


nooks......


crannies!



Next up is Jen and Rich's (hey guys!!) hall tree, bench, chest,rack combo! It started off this cool granny smith apple green color.......




Here she is after the top coat was applied and I did the distressing







Notice how neat it looks with the green peekin though.......







This was a photo holder that I picked up at the TS. I LOVED the little tag holders and just knew it would be put to good use someday.......






TODAY WAS THE DAY!!!









Here are most of the tools I used for the job.......











The finished product! There is actually a mirror that goes into the window area and was removed before the whole make-over process started (thanks Rich!) It made the process go that much faster! No taping off!










Close up of finish.............













I really think the tags made it! They loved it too and that's the most important thing!











Last but not least is this pretty little turquoise /aqua mirror with a fancy schmancy applique, also belonging to Jen and Rich! Again, already a fantastic base color................
















Great nooks and crannies again!!













ALL DONE!! I think this may end up in their foyer so they can check themselves out when they come down the stairs!! LOL!

















I love how the distressed finish instantly transforms a piece! I know that this isn't a typical White Wednesday picture collection but I was so pleased with how these all turned out and I hoped to inspire others to make-over a certain garage find or perhaps something they already have!
You can't make a mistake!


Trust me!! Go for it! You'll love the result!
Have a great Wednesday!!

I deleted your entry and not sure why it didn't work for you. It looked right from what I could see. You might want to try again because your post is wonderful. I love all your transformations. If you want you can and it's really easy to delete if it doesn't work again.

Thanks for joining in.

Beth for you amazing comment!

I love your paint techniques, you paint in my fashion.

Love the hall tree and the mirro is just like one I was going to get from our local thrift store, I was going to paint it and make it a chalkboard due to the glass was not in good shape.

Keep inspiring us girl!
