I saw this cute piece as I was driving down Orchard Street in Boise. It was outside Sara's Consignment Shop, if you haven't been to Sara's its definitely worth checking out! The owner of the shop saw me eye-ing it and told me it probably wouldn't be there long because it was so-gosh-darn cute. She must have did her job well, because I took the bait and a few minutes later was hauling it home.
I could tell by looking at the back of the piece that a mirror was once attached to it. Definitely would have made it just that much cuter, but you could still find an inexpensive mirror to hang above it.
First step, paint stripper.....boo. I have decided I need a break from paint stripper. I'm officially on the hunt for natural wood furniture now. Please don't judge my garage, it's a very SMALL garage.
First coat of paint complete...
Now for the wood stain. As opposed to stripping (paint that is, come on people) I LOVE using wood stain. This is what gives the piece that antique look. It is a dirty job though.
Ahhh yes. Now I remember why I love to do this! So happy with how this turned out...
After painting furniture my next favorite thing would be switching out hardware. How cute are these knobs?!
What a great start to my weekend! Finished my rustic chic project, watching Boise State football tomorrow, and celebrating my husband's birthday on Sunday! Lots to be grateful for!
