These little nightstands were found in the local thrift store and I knew they would be pretty with a new painted finish. I decided to use sea sponges to mimic the look of old Swedish furniture.
Paint is a magical thing. Nothing transforms a room like new paint on the walls...
Ever find an item that has an interesting shape, but the finish is the wrong color or out dated? With a good primer, you can paint just about anything and transform your piece into something you will enjoy.
I was in my local craft store and saw these plastic pumpkins on sale. They were the perfect size to display in my tiered tray stand, but I did not like the colors. I decided to layer on paint to give them a rich custom look. Just like how I dry brushed my chairs in a previous post, I applied the paint in layers.
