Lace and a Hot Mess

This just might be one of my favorite redos. Minus the spiders, their eggs and a whole lotta cob webs. Besides the spiders and their soon to be babies it came with a rotted leg which I fixed using this method.


Here's a pic after I scrubbed her with Clorox Clean Up and sanded down some peeling paint. Yup, this is after I cleaned her up.





And here she is after....





The drawer fronts were done by laying a piece of lace fabric over them and then spray painting. I taped off the edge of the drawers first because I wanted to keep them white. I used Rustoleum Aluminum in a matte finish and sprayed the pulls as well. Make sure to use a fresh piece of lace for each part you spray...trust me on this!

 I loved doing this one so much, not to mention it sold super quick, I did another.




Happy Weekend and Happy Painting!!!

Linking up at these parties..

Sue, I love it! I have not done a lace stencil in a long time...Yep, you have inspired me to do it! The aluminum paint is perfect and you picked a great lace to stencil with. A great lace pattern is such a key component! It is gorgeous...Like everything you do!

That is so pretty! I don't quite understand though, did you use the lace as a stencil and paint it, then remove the lace or does the lace stay on there.

Sue, I read your article at the polka Dot Closet on How To Sell And Ship Furniture Online. I love finding lost treasures and turning them into unique one of kind items. However, I've always wondered what to do with all my treasures once the house gets to full. After reading your article I believe selling big pieces on line is possible. So inspired I created an Etsy store called Overdue Furnishings. Now I just need to make the jump and start selling nationally! Thanks for the informative article and inspiration to make my hobby a side business.

Amazing transformation. I actually have that dresser and other matching pieces, not sure what you dealt with but mine are made of maple and I hate the set, however seeing what you did leaves me feeling like there is something that can be done to transform my hideous heavy furniture. I know I would not do this on mine as it would be too many pieces of furniture but it gives me hope that I can actually do this and if I mess up well, try, try, try again. Thanks for the post, just amazing.
