Living Room Makeover

Living Room Makeover – One piece of furniture at a time ๐Ÿ™‚

When I was getting into this, well, when I was thinking about it…
I didn’t think about the heat, nor the time haha!!

I did decide not a flat black, but a semi-gloss black. That way the semi-gloss adds as protection, but the wood still looks nice and not like plastic ๐Ÿ™‚

It took me about 3 to 4 hours to do this, and I didn’t even need to sand it. The only reason why it took so long was 90 degree heat + no shade = your insides are melting or cooking away, either one lol!

So, here is my completion, and next time it will be the coffee table. I hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend, but unfortunately the weekend has came to an end, and now our week begins. To me; it is just another day to be smiling about. Have a wonderful Monday my friends.

3-4 hours of work, drowning in sweat and heat.. I think someone should kiss the painter ๐Ÿ™‚ (Which, on another hand, Hubby did help me)
~Thank You Hubby~

 

 

Six Word Saturday


Yikes, my list keeps getting bigger.

So, I have this DIY list that just keeps adding up, and I will get around to do every one of them! I just have to get all my supplies together to do it.

1) The purse – Redneck Princess taught us how she did it. Well, I just have to pick out an old T-shirt and that is just hard, lol!!! jkk I just need to kick myself and get it done! and of course, make Jade one too!!

2) I am wanting to paint my Entertainment Center, End Table, Bookcase and Coffee table a flat (mate) black, but I am scared it will peel off. I don’t know a lot about painting, so you have to start somewhere. I want to paint them black and get silver knobs ๐Ÿ™‚ It will really bring out a lot of things including the black picture frames I already have hanging up in the house.
First, I know I will have to sand them down, then work on what paint to use. Any ideas??

3) Sanding Jades dresser down from fire engine red, and begin painting it white ๐Ÿ™‚ Along with her bed, so they both will match.

4) Finding a picture frame/picture to make a chalk board.. I want a crackle dark red paint as the frame to bring out the dark red in most of my pictures throughout the house. (I just need to stop being picky)

5) Making or buying a black and white picture to go over our bed in the bedroom. Getting random black and white pictures to match but smaller to go on other walls in the same room.

6) Getting my flower beds done, and buying more bark. Oh, and of course more flowers, you can’t have too many ๐Ÿ™‚

7) Building a circle where my hosta was, so we can pour cement. We are moving our table and chair down there.

8) Making Coasters ๐Ÿ˜ฎ with Tile and Cardstock ๐Ÿ™‚
