But here you go…
My Repurposed Craig’s List Find
I have dabbled in many creative projects but repurposing is what makes my heart go pitter patter. The feeling of accomplishment when I see the before and after is like no other. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon this little gem on Craig’s List for $25. This cute little old couple was moving and I almost felt bad only paying $25.
Here she is before….
And here she is after….
When I got her home I literally sat there staring at her waiting for the inspiration to jump out at me… NOTHING!! I knew I was going to reupholster the chair so I decided to head to Hobby Lobby for some material. I figured the inspiration would start there. As soon as I entered the fabric isle I knew immediately what fabric I would use… I have had my eye on this fabric for a long time but had nowhere to use it. Ahhh haaa, finally I can get my hands on it!
First I cleaned the vanity and chair completely then I primed the entire piece with Kilz primer. After that I painted it with a combo of American Accents Heirloom White and Blossom White. Then I painted all the accents with gold metallic paint. This was the first time I had used this type of metallic paint – it was so awesome to use. It went on like butter!
The top of the vanity looked so lonely and needed some jazzing up! So, I taped a stencil on the top of the vanity and with a Sharpie marker colored on pink polka dots. Whaaa some personality!
And with that she was done – now on to the next lost piece in need of love!
Have a great day!!
