Red White Blue Furniture Makeover
Dud or What?
Hey guys! It’s themed furniture day and today’s theme is “Red, White, or Blue”.
I’m not sure about my project. It could be a love or hate… undecided on my end. It’s definitely not my favorite painted furniture project. I want your ideas and opinions please.
Instead of doing red, white, or blue I went for all three colors. My plan was to recreate or replicate this look. The red, white, and blue chest I bought at the Nashville Flea Market turned out beautifully. The thing is…I didn’t paint it. I worked with what was there. If you would like to see how I totally transformed the chest without repainting you can view it here…Red, White, and Blue Chest.
I bought the chest for today’s project on my last trip to the Nashville Flea Market. Miss Sofi photo bombed me. She was a little sickly on this day and was hanging out with mamaw and papaw. Sofi asked if she could get in the photo and of course I said yes. She dragged one of her little chairs behind the chest and stood on it to pose.
The paint finish is a little over the top….too busy. I might put another coat of white paint on the chest and then distress lightly so there is less blue and red showing through. Or maybe I will just repaint the drawer pulls in the beautiful blue color?
Those are a couple of ideas anyway. What do you guys think about the chest? You can be honest. I don’t mind constructive criticism and I read all of your comments. If you would like to know how I achieved this paint finish I will share it next week with the before, after, and in-between!
Now it’s time to see what the other girls have today. Just click the photos below to view the complete project.
Have a great day and I’ll see you next week… on Tuesday. No post on Memorial Day.
