I can’t wait to share this next project with you! It is a refinished curbside find that was in really, really bad shape-like, seriously a hot mess! But, I ignored the peeling veneer and scratches, because this baby had beautiful legs & gorgeous details on the side. Seriously, to throw this away was just wrong! Here is the table in all it’s glory:
See what I mean about the legs and the curves-look at the details on the side:
Ok-here’s the scary part:
Pretty bad right? But, I had this beautiful graphic paper that’s actually Drawer liner. There are gorgeous patterns for endless possibilities. I love French graphics and thought this would be perfect and neutral. I used my favorite Mod podge to adhere the paper to both shelves. I find there are less wrinkles if you smooth it down with a credit card as you go. I always let each coat dry and did 3 coats total.
I knew I wanted to age this curbside find, so I picked up antique wax and used Americana Chalk paint in yesteryear. I gave it two coats of chalk paint and then used an old rag and foam brush to apply the wax. Just brush it on, then wipe it off going as dark or light as you would like. I really wanted to darken the paper, as I loved the patina it was creating. I used a clear wax for the wood.
So the next time you are at a yard sale or flea market (or your
neighbor’s trash) think about those trash to treasure finds! It really is a great feeling to see them transformed. If you have any trash to treasure projects that you’d like to share, please send me a picture. I think furniture makeovers are my favorite project! Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a great day!
