Gilly found this vintage cabinet in the back of a shed. She says of it’s sadly neglected condition, ” Someone at one point in time had used it as target practice….its had patches of dried mud all over it like someone had thrown mud balls at it!” Gilly shares the makeover she gave this diminutive piece at Colour Saturated Life.
Not long ago, I featured a china cabinet makeover from High Style Restyle. Well, that was only one of several projects that Amy and her dad have been making from pieces of the china cabinet he found on the roadside. Today, I’m sharing another one: their new apothecary-style cabinet.
At The Golden Sycamore, Allison and her husband found this old wash stand when they were cleaning out their basement. Free furniture is always the best kind to experiment with, so Allison seized the opportunity to try using milk paint for the first time by giving this piece a little makeover.
After receiving these retro side tables as a gift from her mom, Bonnie at Revolutionaries got to work! She used some elbow grease and milk paint to transform the tables into a drool-worthy duo.
Do you have a spot in your house that bugs you? For Allison at The Golden Sycamore, it was a corner in her dining room. No matter what she tried to do with it, “It just never felt right.” Then she spotted this corner cabinet on her neighbor’s curb and dragged it home. She put it in the problem corner just to keep it out of the way but fell in love with how it looked there! And once you see what she did with it, you’ll fall in love with it too.
Kathy from The Salvaged Boutique had this secretary desk in her pile of “things to be refinished”. A small accent table in a pizza shop restroom with a diamond-patterned top caught her eye, so she snapped a photo and used it as inspiration for the secretary makeover.
This old stool was languishing at a garage sale, unsold. Needless to say, Holly walked away with it for free and blogged about it’s transformation at McCall Manor.
Over at her blog, Flimsy Pi, Karen explains that a friend gifted her with several old windows. “When we picked them up from her house my husband thanked her for ‘feeding my habit’,” Karen laughs. She decided to use the first window as a display for some handmade doilies, a gift from another friend.
