Furniture Restyle

I came across a pair of antique furniture pieces that I thought would look cool if they were restyled. I really enjoy adding pieces to our home that have character.  

For this project I used spray paint, acrylic paint, and fabric. All of which I picked up at Hobby Lobby. When making an antique selection, I usually take in to consideration the shape and potential. Most of the time the beauty is already there. I just help bring it out. Shout out to papi who helped me with the reupholster part of the project!

I was inspired to get a leopard print piece for our home when I saw this piece on the One Kings Lane website which retails for $795.00. 😳It looks nice but it is totally out of my price range.

I am really happy with the way the project turned out! Check out before and after pictures down below.

Side note: I am excited to see Justin Timberlake perform at the Super Bowl! Seems like just yesterday Houston was hosting the game. I am going for the Patriots!

 I knew I wanted to play with leopard print while still keeping an antique vibe so I mixed silver and gold acrylic paint to get a muted gold tone.

As I was painting I wiped off the excess paint to give it a weathered look.
