Upcycled with a little imagination

 

It's not just about painting a piece of furniture.  Sometimes you have to think outside of the box.  I've seen some incredibly wonderful upcycles using fabric, pictures, odds and ends like buttons or old keys, paper, the list is endless.  I will share my pieces as I do them and I hope you find some inspiration and ideas from them.

This lovely old washtable has been given a new life with Fusion's Bayberry and because  there was such beautiful wood grain, I stained the top and top drawer. SOLD

Paris End Table

Here's another great old end table.  I chose Confidence and Revenge for this one.  I distressed along the edges of the legs to show the Confidence underneath and then added some Muddaritaville stencils to finish it off.  From blah to ooh la la.  SOLD

Using a custom mix of van Gogh I transformed this vintage dressing table. $425

Vintage Secretary

This piece was in rough shape but now it's gorgeous painted in Lichen with a black glaze and new hardware. $525

Patina End Table

I loved the shape of this little table but not the dark colour.  I chose Patina and Chalk.  Patina is a lovely blue-green colour.  I finished off with some light distressing and dark wax.  I think she turned out pretty good.  Oh, and this is my little helper Pixie who is never too far away.  SOLD

Violet Vanity

This is a gorgeous Antique Vanity refinished in a soft Violet and white.  Lightly distressed and aged with French Caffeine Beeswax.  SOLD
