A Discarded Table Becomes An Old World/French Country Treasure!

This is a very easy project for those of you who have furniture you no longer like, but cannot afford to replace it. It also doesn't have to be what, or how I am doing mine. You could just look up the look you like, and mimic that in paint. The rules/methods are going to be similar. Just dissect what it looks like, and transfer that look to your piece.

For my table, I started with a leftover from the previous home owners...discarded in the basement. I had cleaned it up, and used it in this bedroom, as I had other dark pieces, but I have now been changing the look of the room over this past year, and it was time for this table.

We began with a base coat of off white, and after letting that dry I painted a cream color here, and there. Top, bottom, sides, and the legs. I then followed that with strokes of black, grey, and gold to give it the appearance of being an old piece, painted over several times.

For an additional decoration I used one of my French stencils on the bottom, and gave it a coat of polyurethane to seal, and protect it, and I finished in one day! I am quite happy with how this turned out, and hope you take a little inspiration away, and begin a project of your own soo.! Let me know if you do, maybe even send along a photo of yours!

Remember to subscribe for more, another project in this very bedroom will be happening soon, and you don't want to miss it. Subscribers are notified when the new videos come out!

A French Country, Old World Makeover for the Library

We're changing our dark Victorian Library into a light, airy French Country/Old World look for very little cost in this DIY Video.
Below are a few of the new things that have changed.

First we have the Chifferobe which was stained a dark cherry, and not in the best of shatp. We gave it a cream color base coat, a few stencils, and a light stain to seal it.

Above we have, what use to be a cheap, plain black computer desk, and we have given it the same treatment as the Chifferobe. This has turned out very well, and is certainly a great improvement on what it once was.

This little side table has undergone a tremendous transformation. First it started out covered in a false wood look, then it was painted a cream color, and now it has been given an Old World look with faux painted panels, a blue wash, stenciling, and finally a light stain to seal it.
As always, let me know what you think, and keep on watching for more creative, and inexpensive decorating ideas!
