I found the bottom half on a London street in Kentish Town, It had been thrown out of a closed down Indian restaurant. It had been coverd with sticky plastic padding and had been used as a bar! I made up the top half from old builders planks of wood. It has a crackle glazed paint effect which is now peeling..very distressed and shabby.. Shabby Chic!
It seems like everyone is painting walls white and kitchens gray. Until now. I am here to tell you that gray is done. Yep.....kaput....finished.....finito.... I don't mean that in a "What! I just painted everything gray" kind of done but it might be time to retire the obsession. You knew it couldn't last forever people.....trends come and go and when I don't get excited about seeing a pretty gray kitchen then I know I'm ready to move on..... So what's next? I think ivory and beige are going…
For a couple months I've been pinning and dreaming what seems like hundreds of painted kitchen cabinets, and tackling that monster of a project is on my to-do list for summer. I love the bright look of painted kitchen cabinets, and know I will love it in our kitchen too.
The painted dresser is the hero of the home DIY projects right now as it appears more and more of us are tackling meaningful DIY jobs! This simple furniture upcycling job is sweeping the world of social media. Refreshing an old pine kitchen dresser with a lick of paint and some new on-trend handles is a smart way to salvage an unloved piece of otherwise practical furniture. #upcycling #diyjobs #homeimprovements #howtopaintadresser #howtoupcycle
