The first thing I tackled was this cute little iron footstool that I purchased at a thrift shop. It was already painted white so all I did was reupholster the top. Here is the before picture.
And here is the after.
Using blue tape I painted the stripes on the burlap to give it somewhat of the effect of a grain sack. I love that the color goes so well with my rug and the furniture in this room.
This mirror is a Craigslist find. It was a pretty mirror in the gold finish but didn't really go with the room. I painted it with leftover pale gray paint, dry brushed with a little off-white and then lightly distressed.
So much better! The mirror now has a new home in our living room. The plates on the wall were an Ebay purchase several years ago.
I love the detail.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I always love hearing from you!
