That moment when you realize you do not have any furniture to paint...yep, I had that moment a week and a half ago.
Due to my getting a house ready to sell frenzy and my get rid of it attitude that included 4 dump loads and 4 thrift store loads, I discovered I had left the paint project cupboards bare.
A few hours spent at garage sales quickly changed that and I had a plethora of before projects.
Here are the afters--not staged for our viewing pleasure, but ready to sell at the show I sold at over the weekend.
A little vanity got a simple off white paint makeover:
An end table with a loose bottom shelf, received a chippy paint treatment, via some candle wax and Fusion Mineral Paint. The base was "rusted" with spray paint and cinnamon.
A round table from a storage unit sale also got a Fusion Mineral Paint job and a little free-handed herringbone design.
And after repairing a small nightstand, it was painted dark grey with Fusion Mineral Paint and then stenciled on the drawers.
Three of the four projects sold--they were quick and easy and fun to paint. Never underestimate the power of paint! Thank goodness for garage sales--they saved my bacon this show.
