I am so glad you are here for Makeover Week! I was prompted to do this week after being contacted by Country Chic Paint to sample and review their paints. It had been so long since I’d done a makeover and four quarts of free paint + a goal to do more makeovers + a fabulous thrift store right near us gave me the idea to do a whole week of makeovers.
It was a fun day when the paint arrived in the mail. It was packaged so adorably! I’d never used chalk paint or finishing wax before so it was a fun experience to try these out.
We have this amazing thrift store near us called Savers. I rarely go in there without finding a dynamite piece to redo. For whatever reason there are usually amazing pieces here in the midst of a collection of pieces that well, to be nice, paint just won’t transform. I’ve rehabbed enough very old dressers to be really sick of sanding drawers down to make sure they move smoothly so when I saw this piece that said “1970s!” I knew I wouldn’t really have a problem with drawers moving since it was relatively new (comparatively speaking).
I love taking a piece that screams a certain generation and turning it into a very classic piece. When I saw the piece above I knew right away I wanted to transform it using the Dark Roast Country Chic Paint. I adored using this paint. I didn’t have to do any prep other than cleaning the surface and it was amazing at covering… this is two coats! It really does look chalky in person, sort of like a very flat paint.
I love clear glass (or acrylic) knobs and pulls and Hobby Lobby has a great selection of them for a decent price when you get their 50% sale. The sparkly knobs really pop against the dark paint.
The kids and I drove an hour each way one day to stock up during Hobby Lobby’s 50% off sale, we made a morning of it and went out to lunch and then came home with a big bag full of knobs and pulls.
The top drawer has some amazing built in storage!
Finally, one last shot of the what may be my favorite makeover EVER:
Come back tomorrow to see the farmhouse table redone!
