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 : Upholstery Part 1

DIY Mondays : Upholstery Part 1

Happy Monday, all! Remember when I made over my dinning room set? Yeah, that was a LONG time ago. I actually finished the upholstery not long thereafter but I never got around to editing the video and then I kind of forgot about it. Well, here it is in all it’s glory. This was a lot simpler than I thought it would be so if you have a similar project on the go, don’t be afraid to jump right in.

For those of you who would like to see the process, here are the previous steps in this project:

I know I say in the video that I will give a price breakdown for all the aspects of this makeover and I will, I’m just going to finish posting the last two upholstery videos after this one and then I will do a recap post with all that info.

Have a lovely start to your week!

Dining Room Set Makeover Part 5

Well, this series took long enough. I’ve actually had the painting done for quiet a while now but I had to put the video together and then there were other posts that I got caught up in, so that’s that. But this is the last instalment (at least for painting). I have two separate posts coming for the upholstery (which is currently done! Woohoo!) and I couldn’t be prouder of how it turned out!

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
