A few weeks ago, I bought a few things at a yard sale that I thought had some potential, such as this little storage cabinet with drawers.
I painted the base of the cabinet black and the three little drawers fronts white. I stenciled the number 1, 2 and 3 on each drawer front since the drawers looked kind of plain.
I say it’s not a bad little transformation considering it took me hardly any time at all…..I love transformations like that!
I think some of us can remember these toilet paper holders being popular back in the day (80’s early 90’s). At one time they were all the rage at craft shows.
With a little bit of paint and some creativity it now looks like this…..
Before I painted it, I added a textured wallpaper to the front door. I then painted it, distressed it in a few areas and applied a dark wax to it.
I already took it to my booth and at first I wasn’t quite sure if it would sell but guess what….it sold the very next day! You just never know do you!
I didn’t take pictures of this process (I’m sorry) but imagine if you will, white bird cages and a pair of oil bronzed candle pillars holders because those finds are what I used to make these out of…..
I spray painted the candle pillar holders white and applied a dark wax to them. I also used the dark wax on the white bird cages to give them that aged look as well. I used E6000 adhesive glue and attached the bird cages to the candle pillar holders.
I love it when I find little things like these and give them a whole new look.
As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week.
