Carmel at Our Fifth House is joining a group of ladies to host some great parties for February. The first one is a Paint It Challenge. This is where we get to show off all our paint and refinishing projects.
If you follow my blog then you saw my master bedroom get a complete makeover this past fall. It went from make-do to love it. You can see the finished room here. It all started with finding the headboard .
The headboard had great lines and wonderful fabric, but the orangey colored wood just really had to go. At a price of $75 for a king size, it had real potential and I knew it would be such a focal point all redone.
To see how I did the painted and distressed finish click here. Such an amazing difference, don't you think?
Now I was on the hunt for a dresser and night stand. I found the perfect piece at Goodwill, just needed a little refinishing. Great lines and fantastic storage. Love it and $12.99 is a steal.
After sanding down the top and refinishing it, plus touching up the base and some new hardware, this piece is just what I was looking for. You can see the whole thing here.
Now the hunt was on for a dresser, that took a couple of months, but I found just the perfect piece at a thrift store. It was in great shape and had super storage, original hardware, but the top was really scratched. Definitely needed to be refinished.
Once it was refinished and in place, I knew it couldn't have been more perfect. The see the refinishing steps just click here.
