Today’s Guest Blogger is Lisa from Before Meets After! Lisa loves to take furniture pieces of furnriture and turn them into something beautiful! She also has some other great stuff on her blog so be sure to go and check her out. And if you are lucky enough to live near Atlanta GA you can actually purchase some of her great pieces!
I am honored to be guest posting today for Ange as she makes this exciting move with her family! Ange has some great ideas for around the home and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with in her new house! I am so excited today to share with you a furniture project that I did for a friend!
I swear this piece had a 2 inch layer of varnish on it. It about killed my arm (and sander) to take all of it off. But I needed it down to the bare bones to paint it.
You can see the before and after of a good cleaning with steel wool. Well, even after cleaning I still didn’t like the gold look, so I dipped them in the stain and covered with a spray poly.
I love the details on the sides and legs!
I love the dark knobs and the dark top too!
Thank you Lisa for posting today! I am off a day of the schedule and losing my mind, so come back tomorrow for Heidi from Chick Hardware! We say goodbye to our house in just a few short hours! My camera is giving me a hard time so I hope I can get a few last photos before we leave! Then we’ll be taking off for a three hour drive to the new house. We actually managed to fit everything into the big U-Haul and a trailer so that was wonderful! The goodbyes have been sad but we know that we will be back to visit and our home is always open for our friends and family as well. So hopefully I can get some pictures up on facebook this weekend of the new house but we’ll see how crazy my life is!
