This little night stand started out pine and had been in my daughter's room for many year. She didn't take it with her when she moved out so when I had the opportunity to work with country chic paint I chose their Trigger metallic cream paintand I love it.
It goes on so smooth and has a beautiful metallic sheen. I even used it to update the color of the knobs on the drawers.
I got this dresser at a garage sale for $45 and it was in bad shape. I stripped the top of the damaged finish and it stained up so nicely. I really love two-tone paint on dressers and the new cup drawer pulls were a big improvement over the dated ones it came with.
Christine couldn't bring herself to toss her old old sewing machine cabinet. So she re-imagined as a desk. The new pink paint job freshened it up fro the old dark stain. It's the perfect spot to write a little note or wrap a small gift.
Mixing colors is easier than you think
Update even the smallest of projects with a little paint. Get creative with mixing colors to create an hombre effect. And use white to create a beautiful contrast.
Don't use your old CD baskets for CD's any longer? Give them an update with some craft paint and add a few extra details to make them fun. Using the frosted glass paint gives this toilet tank caddy a coastal vibe.
I didn't literally, I pulled this old double-headed desk light from the trash but I did save it from heading there when the house across the street was being renovated. The junk haulers were on their way and I'm so thrilled I was able to take this light from dusty and dingy to fun and bright!
Create an hombre effect like this when by custom mixing craft paint.
