While out on the junkin' road I'm always looking for good furniture. Y'all know what I mean...sturdy, wood, solid, wood!
Then I decide how to RESTORE and RESTYLE the old vintage piece so that it fits in perfectly with today's family! Often I will flip through magazines and visit retail stores to see "what's hot and what's not"!!
This bed was not very stylish anymore..dreary and damaged...
But a vision was there...
With a little elbow grease, a little paint, and a little TLC this cast off is now ready for the party!
Now restyling beds into benches has been around for years but still are very popular! I first remember seeing these in Atlanta about 10 years ago.
This is a great storage cabinet for a mudroom, playroom, or family room!
(Are you kiddin' me? NOT in this present condition...)
Wow! Look at it now...
The graphics on this are fantastic!
1. This cabinet was first painted white.
2. Oversized stencils were created using contact paper and adhered to the cabinet.
3. Then the cabinet was painted in an earthy tone.
4. Contact paper removed to reveal the bight white letters.
5. The 3D design was then created.
I think this cabinet would look great in one of the hot new colors for 2012 too!
How about you? Do you own anything that needs a little restyle?
My friend and me are off to scour the countryside for a sad sap that with a little creativity we can uncover its hidden charm!
See ya down the junkin' road!!
