I would call today’s project kid furniture. What I added to the painted chest is just awesome. Wait until you see it.
Kids Furniture for the Cowboy At Heart
Jen, Girl In The Garage, and I are bringing you two themed furniture makeovers today. I’m really excited about our projects. I love the way they turned out. Patting myself on the back….and Jen too… I have a long arms.
I purchased the chest at the Nashville Flea Market. It was love at first sight. The chunky knobs and lines of the chest are distinctly masculine. Perfect for a cowboy themed makeover!
I painted the chest with Beyond Paint in Mocha.
The mocha is a really dark warm brown. This is one of the few times that I didn’t remove the hardware when I painted the furniture.
The horseshoes and rusty star are purchases from EBay. I bought bunches of them a long time ago. I crafted several projects using the stars and horseshoes in the past but nothing recently. In fact, I kind-of forgot about them. They worked perfectly for the cowboy theme. I attached the horseshoes with screws. The rusty star is actually a nail…so attaching it was easy!
No furniture project is complete without using an electric sander. They don’t call me the “Queen of Distressing” for nothing.
Now I have a sneak peek of Jen’s themed furniture project….
