It’s Monday and I have a great Nautical Style Furniture makeover to share!Did everyone have a good weekend? My husband waited on me all day yesterday, cooking…cleaning…helping with projects…just being sweet. I received happy Mother’s Day calls from both of my children, one lives in Alaska and the other was out of town. So I had a great weekend and I’m ready for whatever this week brings. But right now I have a project to share with you.
I’m still feeling beachy.
Can you tell?
before, a chest I picked up at My Favorite Junk Shop
It was missing a couple of pulls so I found some replacements and decided to spray paint the lot. There were so many pulls I hated to spend the money to buy new ones.
I used Rust-Oleum Spray Paint Primer in Gray as a base coat.
After the primer was dry I sprayed the pulls with my new favorite color, Rust-Oleum in Satin Lagoon.
The chest was really beat-up with gouges in the top and sides so I went with a heavily distressed finish in satin white. I had a vision when I started the project of a single red stripe down the front but I put on the pulls just to see how it looked at this point. No, it needs that stripe or something.
I painted on one stripe and that didn’t look right so I painted another one so the look was symmetrical. Then I distressed the stripes really heavily
I also painted the legs and bottom board with paint I had mixed to match the satin Lagoon spray paint. I do really, really like this color.
So what do you think. Did I go overboard (pun intended) on the makeover? Would you call this chest Nautical Style Furniture? I painted a Beach Inspired Dresser with Numbers last week and this makeover is similar, yet not, if that makes sense. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Kathy
