Furniture Makeover

 So my parents wanted to get rid of their old pine furniture. I told them I would take it off their hands, maybe throw a coat of paint on it. . .see what happens. Well-it turned out beautifully! We used "Toasted Marshmellow" as the color. It was the perfect mix between cream and white. 
Here is before: thanks to my muscular husband, I didn't even have to sand 1 inch.


Here is the furniture with the primer. Note: open a window or door when painting with Kilz primer. I smelled it for days.
TA-DA!



A huge success! Don't ever be afraid of painting furniture-it's a little time consuming but totally worth it. :)

  4. Kate! Your blog is wonderful! I am a hairdresser in Texas, and had been feeling a little blah with it, but all your fun and easy ideas completely reinspired me! Anyway, I was wondering if you had a link to the site where you found the steps for your furniture makeover?? I ended up with my grandparents bedroom suite from the 1960's and it's totally gorgeous except the mahogany color and some wear and tear so I have been dying to redo it just not sure where to start. Any help you could give would be so appreciated. Thanks!!

  8. I have two dressers and a bed that I've been wanting to paint white, but have been a bit skeptical. I love how it looks in your room! We're moving in about six months, so when we do, I might take the leap and paint them!

  10. I just stumbled across this post and I LOVE what you did with the furniture! A fresh coat of paint can totally change a piece and lucky you that you now have an entire bedroom set that looks so good and only cost you the paint and some time! Love the fresh white look
