ANNIE SLOAN GRAPHITE BEDROOM SET MAKEOVER


I was so excited to get the "in home" photo of this Annie Sloan Graphite Bedroom Set Makeover that I was commissioned to do awhile back.

The solid wood bedroom set was all original and had been in my clients family. She wanted to update it and make redo her sons bedroom for his "big boy" room.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite was perfect for that!

I did both dressers, the mirror, the headboard and footboard. I lightly distressed edging and then I mixed dark wax on the tops of the dressers to give them a little more pop and extra durability for wear over the years.
The one that I can always count on with Annie Sloan paint is durability. It stands up to wear without scratching unlike any other "chalk paint" replica that I've tried over the years!

The finished bedroom photo was sent to me almost exactly 1 year after I painted the set. It looks as good as the day I dropped it to her!
Annie Sloan Graphite is such a versatile color - perfect for any gender, age or room, as this proves!

I'm so blessed to have clients like this one and here's what she had to say...
"We finally got my little boys room finished! The furniture you painted looks awesome! I can't tell you how much I love it! I have a few items I'm going to want painted in the future..are you still doing it?"

Customer testimonials and their desire to work with me again is a bonus to my being able to do what is my passion!

CURBSIDE DRESSER TO PAINT SUPPLY SHELVING



You should all know by now that I never pass up any piece of solid wood furniture that someone has designated as trash. I'm always on the lookout for curbside treasures in the rough. Even if it means they are broken or can't be used for their original purpose, if it's solid wood, there is always something to do with it!

I found this dresser on the side of the road and grabbed it up...in the rain!
The drawers were falling apart but I knew with such heavy solid wood and it's style, I'd do something with it!

I've been needing a designated shelving space for all my paint and decided this one would be perfect.

Because this project is for me and not resale, I never finish quite as fast and still need to add shelving boards, but I couldn't wait to share with you!

It gave me the perfect amount of space needed for paint and supply storage and I love it!

The top boards of the dresser were a little worn and loose, so I decided instead of painting the top, I used Java Gel Stain and then seal with 2 applications of the same brand Clear Coat. Awesome for many years of wear and use with laying tools on it, as well as projects and other supplies all the time.
Another reminder never to pass up what someone else has deemed for the landfill! I love how this turned out!
