Chalk Painted Couch

Chalk Painted Couch

Hey guys! Welcome back to another week! I’m pretty excited about this project. I bought this couch on Kijiji (my favourite as you know) for a whopping $60. Why does anyone buy anything new? Honestly. But it needed some updating. That floral print was just not doing it for me. So, what to do? What do I always do when faced with a design challenge? Chalk paint it, of course!

DIY Mondays | Chalk Painted Night Stands

This weekend was all about chalk painting. I decided to get to a couple painting jobs that I had been procrastinating and it all looks great! Do you do that too? Hold off on something forever just because you don’t want to start it. Getting started really is the hardest part. Everything else just falls into place. Here’s what happens when you actually start something!

DIY Mondays | Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Nightstands

Welcome back to the beginning of another week! Today I have a pretty exciting project for you guys. While I’m here, visiting my mom, she decided to paint her bedroom set and so far we have the nightstands done. I LOVE them! Such a great improvement. We used the Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is very similar to the Fusion paint I used for my Dining Room Set. They’re both mineral based paints so they don’t require any sanding or extensive prep work (yay!).

Dining Room Set Makeover Part 4

PAINTING IS DONE! Today we did the final coat of white on the base of the table and the second coat of grey on the table top. And, if I don’t mind saying so myself, it looks fan-freaking-tastic. It is sooooooo beautiful. I feel unreasonably emotionally attached to it.

A couple notes now that the painting portion is done: Read more

Dining Room Set Makeover Part 3

Today I did the first coat for the top of the table… I freaking LOVE it. I thought this colour might be too dark, but it’s perfect! Couldn’t be any better. As you can see in the picture, it does dry lighter than it looks while still in the bottle.  This is common with any paint but I hadn’t used this particular paint before so I wasn’t sure.

The Dining Room Set Makeover Part 1

20150124_162646_HDRThis dining room set is going to be EPIC. I am so out-of-this-world excited! When I first laid eyes on this set, I fell in love. My husband and I joke all the time that our house is the house Kijiji built. I refuse to pay overpriced retail prices, so I go to tent sales, store clearances, garage sales (my favourite Saturday activity!) and I thrift as if my life depended on it. Hunting items down on Kijiji is almost a full time job. New things are loaded every minute and the good items are gone just as quickly. I have a whole system for snatching up the best deals, but that is a topic for another blog.
