Painted Furniture = Instant Update!

Monday, July 25, 2011

Have you ever gotten one of your kids something and then the other sibling wanted one too? No?  Happens all the time in our household.  I don't always give in, but it's desk's they are wanting.  And they are hoping to have them before school starts.  Ugh -- and let me tell ya I've opened a can of worms because now there are multiple things in each room I want to do before I can call them done!
I went into Home Depot to purchase a turquoise color for these night stands.  I always, always check the oops paint section and just happened to find this pretty blue color.  It was kinda turquoisy and it was only $5 bucks so into the shopping cart it went!
The most important thing was that my sweet girl approved as well!  Yea!!

Can you even believe the transformation?!  I so love paint!  All I have left to do now...
  1. Find fabric that I can make new window panels and re-cover the chair cushion.
  2. Make some throw pillows to incorporate the red, pink and yellow to go along with this new blue paint.
  3. Paint some picture frames white {cause after seeing them in the picture I don't like the black anymore}
  4. Make a tufted headboard out a vintage headboard that was given to me.
  5. Create a large wall art piece for above the bed.
  6. Make some tissue paper pom poms. {cause she loves them so}
  7. Find some baskets {probably have to paint those}for the bottom shelf of her nightstands.
Whew!  All because of a desk! Good thing I really love doing all of this and if it makes them smile its so worth it!  I just wish I could find more hours in a day!!! 

Linking up to...


  1. Lookin good! I love the color, its so fresh and hip! I know what ya mean about not enough hours in the day. I bought new fabric and want to work on some ideas, but by the time I stop to work on them I'm to tired and its late.
    I am sure those girls will help you get everything finished.
    Have a great weekend,

  2. I'm a HUGE fan of the lovely turquoise color punctuated with punches of red. It's such a pretty combination. And I LOVE the OMG! Awesome!
