Thank you, I redid her room after our other daughter’s surgery.  It was wonderful to remind her that she is special to us after her sister got so much attention because of the surgery.

Oh, I did her nightstand too.  I almost forgot

I don’t know if this really counts as furniture…  It’s our bathroom cabinet and our bathroom mirror.

From this….

To this…

I have a few.  I originally started painting furniture to use at our wedding, but wound up selling almost everything.  I still have this first piece, but a few people have expressed an interest.

 

 

I didn’t take a before of this one, but it was dirty and broken. The paint job was horrible (gloppy, white paint).

 

Another one with a finish that was ruined…

 

This one was a sewing table and it was nasty.  I worked pretty hard on it and sold it on Craigslist when i was done.

@Loribeth:  gorgeous! What did you use to paint your vanity? I’m dying to try doing this but have no idea how to go about it!

I have done several things…I had an awesome coffee table that I refinished, but had to sell before I moved in with Darling Husband. I refinished our dining chairs, but don’t have pictures of it here. I’ll try to find them and share.

@MrsWBS:  Thanks!! I’m pretty proud of it.

First I sanded the front part so I could glue on the decorative wood applique. I used a Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations kit in white. This includes a degloser, so I didn’t have to do any sanding to the rest of it. Then I used paint I had around the house, like the bathroom wall color paint, craft paint and some other shades of white to give it an antique look. Then I did a little sanding after I finished painting it to age it a little more. A semi-gloss clear coat of acrylic was the last step to finish it off.
