Free Standing Mirror

Tonight I am going to show a make over of a large free standing mirror that my grandpa actually found for me at yard sale. Also about a week ago I won a giveaway for some Country Chic Paint, it is a chalk and mineral based paint also VOC free!. This was my first time trying out the paint, and I loved it. Its not to thick or runny and goes on so smooth! It dries matte and sands easily for the distressed looked all in all I loved the paint and would use it again. Here is how the mirror started.

Green End Table

In my post before this one I showed some things we found at a yard sale. One was this cute little end table to me looked like a small farmhouse table in a end table size. If only it was bigger! Here is how it started out.



Its the one to the left in front of the small hutch/shelf

I started out sanding the top and stained it and used a dark wax over the stain to make it even darker, After that I painteg the rest in a darkish green color and lightly distressed it and added dark wax to it to. 


I love how it turned out! and now looks like a old mini farmhouse table.
I also made these fabric pumpkins like the one below.



I will have more re-do's from the furniture in the first picture, so check back to see how those turned out. I also won some Country Chic Paint from a giveaway. So you will also see some furniture make overs using their paint, Excited to show you!

Sewing Chair

I actually got this chair for free along with a sewing table. that I am going to use as a craft desk. It was a little dirty and fabric was awful. but there was also storage in the seat for small items.
This is how it started out.
