So for the past few weeks we have been staring at this ugly furniture and I've been hoping to sneak in the makeover... and I finally did it this weekend! I have to say that the finished product is even better than I had imagined it! I have a sore back as most of this was done with a little baby wrapped to me. He certainly prefers to be held, and so that was pretty much the only way to complete this project. I can't say I mind, he's super cuddly... only my back is paying for it a bit because of the bending, etc. required to paint the furniture.
I used the same tutorial for making chalk paint that I had used when making the Washi Tape Shelf back in the winter because it turns out really nice! I had paint leftovers in the basement from bedrooms and bathrooms so I had a few colours to choose from.
Here's what this stuff looked like before:
Beautiful set, right?! Well my little helper and I got busy making this over!
He had such a fun time painting. This type of paint is fantastic because there's no prepping required. I didn't do anything to the furniture before we started, and it went on so easy.
Of course, I was hoping that this would be a quick project. It wasn't. We were at it most of the day and I had to finish one chair the following day. I have this habit of always thinking that things will take an hour when it really turns out to be 4.
