Hello friends, it’s late but I just got home from work a little while ago and you know how that is…takes a while to unwind for me. So I thought I’d show you my very first piece of furniture that I have painted white. I was putting the first coat on when I remembered to take a picture. You can tell by the legs that it was a barn red, I painted it Clean White by Valspar Premium which has a primer in it. I’m not experienced in this but I do know that I’ll never buy it again, it took five coats to cover it!!!
Sorry about the pictures but it’s night time and with the flash it was just to harsh looking. I love the legs of this piece, I found it a few years ago at our annual community yardsale for $25.00!
The foot of it, very dainty!
The drawers that are on either side!
I’d love to find some French letters to put in these letter holders, I’m really lovin the white!
The top of it lifts up and I just put some stuff on the top for the photos. I’m going to add some glass knobs when I find some I think it would make it more shabby looking.
Please, if you have any suggestions on painting or on how you would decorate this I’d love to hear. Remember I’m a babe in the woods here with this style.LOL I think I’ll be painting the chair white as well!
All in all it wasn’t to bad to do but like I said I’m such a newbie when it comes to this white style but one thing I know I love it. When I walked in from work tonight my livingroom was so much lighter and prettier. I know I have alot of work ahead of me but looking at all the fabulous blogs out in blogland, I know it will be worth it♥
