Do you ever need a little motivation to help rise up and bring one of our latest finds to life?
I do. And it’s nothing like blog friends to get you going! I finally refinished an old trunk III bought at a yard sale over three years ago. Today it stands sits proudly with a new coat of paint & a little pizzazz.
But I’m getting a little ahead of myself. When III rescued this hidden treasure at a neighborhood yard sale she looked something like this. Could you pass her up? What if I told you they only wanted $5.00?
A DIYers dream.
Isn’t this piece beautiful, the perfect combination of clean lines and distressed charm. And just like that I had direction. After taping off the leather and nail head trip I sponge rolled the chest in a pure white…before it dried I went back over things with a sanding block. Aged perfection that only took about 20 minutes.
(I used my Silhouette to cut the 717 stencil).
And just like that one person’s junk became our house’s treasure.
