The weather is finally warming a bit up and my thoughts have turned to the boatload of rehab projects that I have planned for spring.

in Furniture Rehab

You all left such sweet comments about my painted kitchen table the other day. {blush} And a bunch of you asked questions about how I did it, so here’s a quick run-down. Unfortunately, this was done in my PBD (pre-blogging days) so I don’t have pictures. We sanded down all of the flat surfaces (tabletop, [...]

Some of you asked to see pictures of my kitchen table and chairs when I showed you the bench that I rehabbed for the kitchen. So here you go… In it’s younger days, it was the typical yellow pine, butcher block kitchen table. Very sturdy and practical but not my style anymore. I don’t have [...]

I’ve been wanting to add some extra seating to our kitchen table for a while and when I saw an ugly old padded bench at the thrift store a few months ago, I knew that it was the perfect size and scale to work with my kitchen table. It’s been a while since I’ve rehabbed [...]

Updating a Sofa

in Furniture Rehab

Have I shown you this sofa? I’m willing to bet that at least two of you are going to comment and say, “HEY! I have that same sofa!” She sits next to this sofa in the new house. In the old house, they were in different rooms and that was good for everyone. Blue denim [...]

Maybe I should have titled this post, “The Best Laid Plans.” My plan was to get this project done over the weekend but Mother Nature simply wouldn’t cooperate. First rain…then wind. Neither one helps when you’re spray painting. But I finally got a finally got a break and we’re all done! Or maybe I should [...]

Hiya gals! I’ve been a little busy in the real world for the past few days so I’m a little behind on my blogging. I thought I would resurrect another furniture rehab post from when I first started blogging. And maybe it will be a little inspiration for Valarie who just won my giveaway for [...]

Can You Rehab a Rehab?

by Kimba on August 26, 2008

in Furniture Rehab

Most definitely! One of the best parts of a quick makeover using spray paint is that you can redo it if you’re tired of the results. Do you remember this piece of ironwork? It had been under my deck for several years and was black and rusty. I wanted a pop of color in my [...]
