Media Center to die for!

I'm so excited about this project.  It turned out exactly like I hoped it would!

 I love the rustic wood.

 The big chunky hinges, handles and nailheads, along with the heavy distressing, makes this piece extra rustic, but still classy. LOVE!

The detailing on the sides...gorgeous!

 The shelves and inside are stained a dark mahogony to match the stain on the black.

Here's the Before & After

Teal Cabinet

 I love how versitile this cabinet is. It would be perfect in a bathroom, or as a TV stand, or in a craft room, playroom, etc.

 The knobs I painted flat black & used some Denatured alcohol (found in the paint section) to rub off some of the paint.  It gives it an oil rubbed bronze look.
 Black glaze to antique it.

 Before of this little beauty...

And that's the power of paint!

White Distressed Dresser

This dresser was in BAD shape.  Every single drawer had to be glued, or the slide reattached, or needed a new drawer glide.  I'm still not sure if the $15 I paid for it was worth all the extra work!  But, now it's a great, sturdy, and funtional piece of furniture that I hope someone will love for many years!

Before the transformation...

Pretty in Pink nightstand


Broyhill dresser brought back to life!

 I wish the pictures showed the color a little better.  It's a bright yellow that I whitewashed and distressed.  It's gorgeous!  Maybe I'll try to get some outside shots and see if it shows the color better.

This dresser was is VERY used condition as you can see from the before pics.  It's a high quality dresser that just needed a little TLC, some gorilla glue, putty, and paint!  Wow.  What a difference!

The magic of spray primer

The one thing I would tell people about refishing furniture is that they don't need to strip & sand everything.  This is something I learned the hard way, and it's still tempting for me sometimes.  I have the perfect example with this table. 

 I took this picture after I had sanded a little...just to get the varnish that was curling.  As you can see, it's a mess!  In the old days I would have used stripper or sanded until my arm was about to fall off.  Now, I just use Kilz original spray primer.  It is amazing!  I refinished this table set from start to finish in ONE day.  Here's how she turned out...

I once had a table like this that I got rid of because I was tired of oak.  Oh, how I wish I had know about spraypaint!

This is a little side cabinet, painted to match the table.
