This big old beauty had a lot of character but the large drawers seemed out of place.

Antique Buffet – Before
I don’t think the drawers were original to the piece, so I replaced them with doors which seemed more appropriate for a buffet. After some repairs and reinforcement it was time to paint. I started with […]

This retro style cabinet was a great size and very well built. I liked the hinged drawer but I thought it would be better if the opening was bigger so I removed both and replaced it with one drop down door. I chose black, for the outside, and gray for the herringbone stencil and a […]

This rusty, crusty trunk was crying for help. It had been beat up bad and needed to be saved. The first step was a good cleaning, then dealing with the rusty metal.

I covered over the rusted edges at the bottom with wood trim, but the pieces on the top were damaged beyond repair and had […]

Upcycled and Stencil Projects 1/29/14

By |January 29th, 2014|

The Tribal stencil is one of my latest purchases from Royal Design Studios and I couldn’t wait to try it out, so I found a couple of pieces ready to be upcycled.

The old trunk was in desperate need of a good sanding, cleaning and painting. To give it character and style I added the stencil […]

I started the new year with some new stencils and couldn’t wait to try them. I had this coffee table and side table that was perfect for the African Plumes Furniture Stencil by Royal Design Studio.

After a light sanding and some bright white paint it was time for the fun to begin. […]
