UP CYCLED BEDSIDE CABINET AND TWO KITCHEN CHAIRS.

If you read my posts you will know I am doing a lot of painting.

I have decided to up cycle furniture some to keep some to sell.

This week I bought this bedside table which has a shelf and one drawer.
All wood perfect to paint. At the moment I am using Anne Sloan paint.








I choose a lovely blue for this project.



I took this paper out. and gave it all a clean.












I will probably put some floral paper on the shelf then varnish on top to protect it.



I also bought two matching kitchen chairs with seat pads which can be removed.




I also painted these in the same blue.








The seat pads are perfect but they are a brown colour so I will probably change
to a pretty floral material to match the blue.










I have ordered a really pretty new handle to go on the bedside table.
So now I just need to find fabric for the chairs.

I will do a post to show you when I have finished.

Then I will put them up for sale.

Fingers crossed someone will love them.

Still waiting for pretty new handle for bedside table and want to change fabric on seats at the moment the seat pads are very good but a light brown material.

  11. I keep meaning to try Annie Sloan paint. Was there much prep involved (sanding cleaning etc) ? Does the paint feel chalky when dry ? Do you have seal with wax or varnish ? Questions questions lol!
    Have a great Easter. Looking forward to seeing the finished chairs :)

    1. I just wiped the furniture down. You do not need to sand. so easy Yes the paint does feel chalky and you have to seal with a wax which makes it feel smooth. Have a fab Easter Jill.
