This past Saturday was my beauty day! Nails & Hair done.
I added a bit of shimmer for summer.
Can I just say that I absolutely love my hairstylist!
I literally can trust Erika with anything.
Check her out at Just Fabulous Salon in Lake Mary, FL!
Recently, I have found that I’m starting to become more comfortable with myself and where I am in my life.
Love, Relationships, Career…Everything is falling into place.
My recent vacation was a nice refresher for me, but I have also created all of these projects for myself!
My Mother introduced me to a lovely little store in the mall called Rustic Journeys. They teach you how to paint furniture to get that adorable shabby chic look that everyone loves.
Now, I wouldn’t be able to drag my furniture to the mall. So I purchased the paint they have available instead. I figured I would tackle a smaller project before I dive into the larger ones in my home.
Matty has had this cute little table forever now – but I absolutely think the “distressed” look on it is a bit too much. Plus – we have had it outside, so it isn’t in the greatest condition.
Therefore, I have found project numero uno!
Enter hideous little wine table.
So I began with sanding down the table with a 120 grit sand paper block that Matty bought for me at the local Home Depot.
I painted the base of the table with Dixie Belle Paint in Dried Sage, the top I painted with the Dixie Belle Paint No Pain Gel Stain in Espresso, and finished the entire piece with Dixie Belle Satin Finish Clear Coat.
I then purchased an adorable knob from Home Depot to the finish the piece off!
So, after a couple of hours….here is the final piece!
I love the transformation! I’m also very proud of myself for this being my first piece!
I of course had to take a variety of pictures – and someone also wanted to be a model as well.
Overall, I am very pleased. So next weekend I will be tackling the larger project. The kitchen table! I will be sure to write up a blog post about that one!
Do you have any projects you’re working on? Any tips for future furniture refinishing projects? Leave me a comment below!
Good night lovelies!
