One more project about to start. I found this base by the side of the road that was broken, with a heavy, round laminate top laying beside it. My husband placed a new board onto the base and then screwed one of my cabinet doors onto it. It will be a farmhouse checkerboard for my front porch and will match my porch sign from my previous post. Here goes.... #repurposedfurniture #farmhouseinspired #farmhousefurniture #farmhousedecor #makewhatyouneed #repurposedpieces #farmhousecheckerboard #trashtotreasure #paintingtherapy #creativestorm

And she is finished! Waxed and ready to cure for a bit and then I’ll test it out on my porch with a cup of coffee to set on it and my books. ☕️ #chalkpaintedproject #chalkpaintedfurniture #furniturecanvas #floraldesign #woodspindles #spindlefurniture #farmhouseinspired #creativeenergy #creativefurniture #creativefurnitureideas #creativefurnituredesign #paintwhatyoulove #arttable #coffeetable

This small table has been on my front porch and I use it to set my coffee and books on. It’s been on my radar to repaint. Yesterday I painted the base in a light turquoise chalk paint and the top had the peeling laminate around the sides pulled off, painted in an Graphite color and the top received a floral makeover. My morning coffee and porch time will never be the same. I’ll wax this and put it back together and get a picture of it on the porch as soon as it’s daylight again. #chalkpaintedproject #chalkpaintedfurniture #furniturecanvas #floraldesign #woodspindles #spindlefurniture #farmhouseinspired #creativeenergy #creativefurniture #creativefurnitureideas #creativefurnituredesign #paintwhatyoulove #arttable #coffeetable

New project completed last night. This whole bar counter was made of leftovers from several other projects and with the help of my husband to cut some of the boards to size and get it all screwed together....he made my design possible. Thank you @tang0charlie 💕 - the main body are the drawers from the file cabinet I bought last year. The sides and top are from four shelves taken from my hall tree makeover that weren’t needed. And a couple boards are from some shelving in the basement that was dismantled. All I purchased was a small length of trim and I already had two decorative wooden curtain rod holders for the curved piece that looks like it’s holding up the top. The whole project cost about $6. The sides and top are in a Matte Granite and the inner color is a lighter shade of duck egg blue (a discounted Sherwin-Williams Flat quart I found at Lowe’s in the clearance paints. It was already tinted this color. I mixed my own chalk paint using it). #repurposedwood #transformation #envision #bar #needbarstools #chalkpaint #diy #usefulfurniture #repurposedfurniture #coffeebar #farmhousefresh #farmhousefurniture

Another little project I finished last night was this sweet antique chair. It is painted in chalk-white and Annie Sloan accents in her Duck Egg Blue. I found some fabric on clearance at Hobby Lobby with duck egg blue in it and it matches all-the-things in my house. The chair is a $2.99 find at Goodwill. Project total cost: $6 (I have a ton of projects all going on at once so to finish three in four days is a great feeling). 😊 #repurpose #usefulfurniture #farmhouseinspired #farmhouse #farmhousedesign #farmhouseliving #farmhouselifestyle #farmhouselife #chalkypaint #chalkpaintedfurniture #halltree #furnituremakeover #duckeggblue #anniesloanduckeggblue

I just finished this project. A neighbor across the street had this hall tree sitting out by the road in pieces. It was a dark color of wood. My husband and I dragged it home and added casters and the backdrop is a Paris Grey wash and the main body/framing is in chalk-white and wet distressed for a farmhouse look. It has two doors with a deep amount of storage underneath. Now for the waxing. #repurpose #usefulfurniture #farmhouseinspired #farmhouse #farmhousedesign #farmhouseliving #farmhouselifestyle #farmhouselife #chalkypaint #chalkpaintedfurniture #halltree #furnituremakeover

The finished painting on the side of my daughters makeup desk. And the progression. A finished photo is coming of the whole piece once I finished waxing it. This flower technique is inspired by @theturquoiseiris - What beautiful pieces of art she paints on furniture. When you find real inspiration, it gives you wings and the courage to try something you’ve never done. Thank you sweet friend! #chalkpaintedfurniture #floralpainting #furnituremakeover #artonfurniture #furnitureart #dionnewoods

My first time embossing with paint!!! What a cost effective way to get detail! I’m going to try dark wax on this after a clear wax is applied to highlight the details on these drawers fronts. My daughters make-up desk is coming along. She picked out crystal knobs that will set right in the center of the embossed flowers. @ilykcat #antoinettepink #chalkpaint #antoinettechalkpaint #chalkpaintedfurniture

Last year I found this sturdy, broken file cabinet and a friend took the drawers/slides out and painted the shell for me in #anniesloanduckeggblue - My daughter needed a new computer desk that could fit all her things and look more organized. So we took two of the four drawer slides and a drawer front to make her a farmhouse computer desk. She has loved it. (See second photo) The two large drawers sat idle for awhile but I knew I would need them in the future. So I recently stacked them and added some shelves from a hall tree project I’m working on and going to turn it into a place to hold my painting supplies and be able to put two bar stools and sit at it for coffee etc. All completely repurposed items. I had four shelves from the hall tree project. Very excited to see how this will turn out when I’m finished painting it. #repurposed #repurposedfurniture #repurposedwood #usefullthings #twofromone #practicalfurniture
