Thank you for all the wonderful comments about my deck project, it really was fun and I love tackling these extra projects! I’ll be sharing more of them here too, perhaps you have a project at home you’ve been wanting to tackle and need some tips? Leave me a comment if there’s a space you’d like to see me tackle. Today I am going to show you how I up cycled some really inexpensive furniture. I was on a tight budget for this project, I have less than $500 to do everything which was a real challenge as I wanted a WOW! space. But it can be done and this space came in under budget! Fist of all I found these pieces on a combination of Facebook marketplace and our local scrapyard or treasure chest depending on how you look at it, I love a Friday afternoon stroll around Givits; its an amazing place and you never know what you will find!
I found three pieces in total all in brown which idd not fit the style, but the wicker was perfect, again I used Sherwin Williams paint and to answer yesterday questions I did not have to water down the paint at all. Wagner also sent me this tent, I was so glad I had it for the tent, it was perfect for the overspray and great to contain everything, I wish I had two but I ended up getting parts of the lawn black as I was impatient (can you believe it, lol). There were plenty of giggles getting it up the first time, but now I know how it would be easy to get it up again.
Again, the spraying process is very easy and the sprayer makes it so easier and so much easier than a brush or roller, I could get in-between all the wicker and in all the nooks and crannies, I was so glad I had it or this would have taken FOREVER! Upcycling furniture or a quick color change is a great way to refresh an old piece or a new to you item. In this series I will show you this applies not just to furniture. I was using the Wagner FLEXiO 3000.
Look at how my upcycling went…
See you again tomorrow with more of this process, if you have any questions be sure to drop them in the comments below.
