Posted in Accent Pieces, Bedroom Furniture, End Tables, Featured, Portfolio

Angie and I (well mostly Angie on this one) has been working away revamping our entire bedroom into a distressed furniture masterpiece. We have previously shared the vanity, oval mirror and one nightstand.  Well here is how the other distressed nightstand turned out. We’re keeping with the “confederate” gray and dry brushing with some darker gray tones and distressing down to a darker undercoat. We’ve been very happy with the results so let us know what YOU think and as always please share on your social sites. Thanks as always for coming by. Angie and...

Chest Of Drawers Turned Into A Bench And Toybox

Posted in Accent Pieces, Bedroom Furniture, Featured

Well friends here is our latest furniture distressing project.  This was a little different from some of our previous work as we had to do some re-purposing for this one. We had an old chest of drawers that was sitting around in storage and was starting to feel the strain of the years. This was actually the dresser Chris had as a child in his bedroom, and we had used it for a few years after getting married but we ran out of room and use for it so it got stored away. After doing some brainstorming we decided to repurpose the old chest into something a little more amazing. It was...

Bedroom Night Stand

Well, here is the last piece that we have so far.  Much more to come!  If you missed the previous two posts on the gray bedroom furniture here is what we’re doing: Angie and I have just started working on a little distressed furniture project in our bedroom.  We’re taking our time and just doing one piece here and there as time permits. The walls of the room are a rich cranberry red so after looking through a bunch of colors we decided on (what I call) a Confederate gray. These were all done using the dry brush method.  Click here to see our tutorial on how we do this:  Dry Brush...

An Old Blue Chair ;)

Posted in Accent Pieces, Bedroom Furniture, Featured, Kitchen

  Alright, you Kenny Chesney fans will understand the wink in the title.  Everyone else will have to look it up 🙂 We found this old chair abandoned in an old barn and in need of some distressed furniture love. We wanted to try the “dry brush” technique on this and share with you how to do it.  We also just made our own dark wax and used it on this chair.  It worked amazingly (in our humble opinion) and in the future we are going to be sharing exactly how we did it so you can make your own on the cheap! Make sure you subscribe to the blog (via the link on the right) AND sign...
