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.

Restroom renovations

As we were working on these restroom renovations my main goal was to bring in light and make things look more up to date. I must warn you...the before pictures for this are pretty yucky. This was NOT our house. 😳

Below are the main things we did to update the restrooms.

  • Removed all the tile and replaced it with new neutral flooring that set the stage for everything else.
  • Removed the existing cabinets, countertop, and sink. Replaced it with a small two door cabinet stained in a rich ebony color. Added granite with a square sink which added a nice touch. 
  • Added a new framed mirror in a pewter tone that reflects the light well. In my opinion, framed mirrors make the restroom feel a bit more lux.
  • Added a new light fixture which ensured the space had adequate light. This is so important especially in a restroom. 
  • Painted the walls a gray neutral shade. We used Sherwin Williams Worldly Gray

Check out the before and after shots. If you are thinking about conquering a home interior project...do it already!

After - I love a clean look for restrooms. I added a little bit of character by painting the cabinets on the left white and staining the cabinets under the sink ebony. It created a nice contrast. Kids....you can also mix cabinet colors.
