Painting Wood Furniture

If you’ve been reading TCB for awhile, then it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of painting furniture.  I loved painted furniture!  And if it’s distressed painted furniture, then even better!

Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly Imperfect. I love that saying.  Reminds me of Melissa and The Nester. It doesn’t have to be perfect you know.  So so true. It just has to be YOU.

Once again, I totally thought I had already featured this blogger.  But according to my search bar, I didn’t.   And she doesn’t have me listed on her featured list………..OR HER BLOG ROLL…………GASP!

She has a wonderful style in painting her furniture finds.  She even has an ebook if you’re interested in learning as well.  What I love about her style, is it has that aged weathered look.  Beautiful.

I have seen so many of these dining room sets on Craigs list.  Do you think they would be selling them if they knew they could just paint them and have it look like this?painting a dining room table

She has so many more fun projects on her blog.  Easy to navigate and I’m sure you’ll find something to keep you busy.  Lots of Ballard and Pottery Barn inspired projects.remodeld bathroom with clawfoot tubOh how I miss my old claw foot tub.

She gives you a glimpse inside her home and many of her rooms.  This kids playroom is darling.  Play room decor

She calls this her “writing room”.  What a perfect space.  Love how she uses an old table for her desk. decorating office space

I couldn’t help notice several Southern Living at HOME pieces in her home.  I have many of them myself.

I hope you enjoy her blog and don’t miss her video on how she restored a gorgeous piece.  I just KNEW she was going to have a cute southern drawl.

    I am always so *shocked* by the difference a little bit of paint can make–even spray painting an old picture frame. It looks so easy on decorating shows, and I’m still terrified to try it for myself!
    Perhaps I need to visit this site!
    Thanks so much for the idea! :)

    Hey Sweet~Girl!
    Long time no chat!
    Miss you!
    I must pop over to this girlies blog!
    We’ve got a BROWN piece of furniture…yep…you heard me….BROWN piece of furniture
    in our bedroom.
    Bottom line…Greg wants to keep it BROWN.
    I want to shabby it up WHITE!
    What’s a girl that DOES not see the BEAUTY in BROWN to do?
    Hey…I think I’ll let my readers decide!
    Hope they don’t want to keep it BROWN!
    Hugs my FRIEND!
