Fave Furniture Fridays #3


Helloooooo! Happy Friday! I've brought you a tutorial today by the lovely Cerniks and their blog. Click on the picture below to check out how they bought a table for $20 on craigslist and transformed it. I LOVE  before and afters- and they show you how to do it and what to use.

 Here is a chair that I finished this week. It's going to take a special person to buy this chair! I wanted to use some fuschia velvet that I had, and it really pops with the aqua! The before? Too horrible to show. ;)
 And another... this one had a pleather seat that I just covered over. Usually I remove the old upholstery, but this one was kindof...nice to sit on. That's the whole point, right? This grey and yellow floral fabric is an apparel fabric so I pulled it tight and sprayed it with scotchguard. It's a staple at our house!
 THIS chair... was my favorite. it's certainly from the archives and long gone, but I loved the green color and the white seat. I think at the next house, I'm going to paint my dining room that green! :)

...and some barstools that I found for $5 and repainted. I sold these on craigslist after a few YEARS of using them.. and the person who bought had no correlation with the letter R. funny!
I leave you with an incredible quote that I found on Pinterest!
If you're as pinterest addicted as I am, you can find me here. :)

Do you have a great project that you've been working on?? Link up! We would love to show you off!
Have a great week!

  3. It's all about the matter of wow and fun! I am so glad to have your blog. The above chairs are really cool and one of my friend will be so delighted after having the chair with letter R. I recently got some white furniture but I have many old pieces as well. I would love to try them with white color to match my existing furniture. Anyway, thanks for sharing this useful post.
