How to paint Shabby Chic Furniture

Quote of the day:
“Radical Chic, after all, is only radical in Style; in its heart it is part of Society and its traditions – Politics, like Rock, Pop, and Camp, has its uses.”
 Tom Wolfe

Happy hump day Jaderbugs! I am seriously in shock that Christmas is already here. I mean, it’s not “here” but it’s HERE! Have you done all of your last minute things to get ready? I still have a little left to do but for the most part what is done is done and what needs to get done…well we will see!

Today I will be showing you how to turn a boring piece of furniture into Shabby Chic’ness. Yeah, I know most things “Shabby Chic” are soft, white, frosty, light blue/green, clean and crisp. Things go a little different in our house. Shabby Chic to me is something that look’s vintage and worn. Let’s get started, I can’t wait to show you my Shabby Chic Furniture.

Here is a preview of what I made. I figured it was Christmas and this would look great with our decor. The good thing about making over a small piece like this is you can change the color anytime you want!

The first thing you will need is the piece of furniture you are making over. I put it in a spot that is out of the way and open so when I start spraying it with spray paint it won’t choke anyone.

Get your spray paint ready. I LOVE Krylon spray paint. It’s smooth and doesn’t leak at at all. The other thing I love about this line are the colors! Have you seen them? Krylon has the BEST colors to choose from. I used the indoor/outdoor gloss color in Banner Red.

Look how smooth it is! I thought this was so pretty.

This is what it will look like when you spray it with about 2 coats. I wouldn’t worry too much about getting it FULLY coated because we will be sanding it in just a few minutes. Let it dry for about 3 hours before you start sanding.

When it’s dry, grab a piece of sand paper and start sanding. You can see that I sand around the edges the most. The fun thing is you can sand wherever you want. Make it your own masterpiece.

Here is the end result. I love how bright it is. Remember you can get this look with any color. Use a color that makes you happy when you look at it. I promise you will love it so much more if you do that. Well gotta run! See ya in the next post.

Don’t forget to make it a DIY kinda day! GlitterBOMB hugs,

    See if you can’t get some clarity and objective about the situation and see what.
    This dual method of signalling makes it both reliable as well
    as flexible. Theteam of proficient professionals believesthat delivering top
    quality service to their clients on a level that no one
    else even comes close to matching will only help to flourish their business Not only can they do
    an astonishing staging but the marketing is also mind-boggling.
    Since the builders use the same house design over and over again, they do not have to use the services of architects
    or draftsmen to the same degree that someone building a custom
    house would have to and this is another cost saving.

    When husky puppies are between the ages of 7-24 months, they
    go through a phase of the nasties. These
    reasons include relocation, buying more space,
    capitalizing on equity, and using the rent as a second income.
    The brushes on carpet cleaners are accurately named Dirt –
    Lifter brushes and they do exactly what the name suggests – lift dirt from
    the carpet and into the hot water solution, which
    is then sucked back up from the carpet. If the building is
    being held for resale, the interest after completion
    of construction can be handled in one of two ways: It can be taken
    as an itemized deduction on Schedule A, or an election can be made to capitalize the interest and add it to the cost of the building, thus delaying the deduction until the building is sold.
    It is a liquid that comes in a tube and is applied right next to
    the skin at the neck and shoulders. No matter
    how cold and cloudy the weather, I could make it warm and toasty inside by running a
    1500 watt space heater for a couple hours.
