This piece was love at first sight. Crazy orange color and all! I got it at an auction and practically had to fight someone for it, but I was the lucky one to go home with it...
Here is my first encounter with paint stripper. It’s wicked stuff! And to my discovery there was a horribly ugly avocado green underneath all that orange. In total I spent about 4 hours stripping all that paint off. It was tedious, but nice to learn all the how-to’s of paint stripping.
Here is the after. This is definitely my favorite piece so far : ) I really like using a shabby white color because it works with everything and is always classic.
I LOVE changing out hardware on furniture. It’s a great inexpensive way to give something a whole new look! I get most of my knobs from Hobby Lobby.
