I don’t know about you, but when I see this box my heart skips a beat! I only have 2-3 things from Tiffany’s but I LOVE TIFFANY’S! This beautiful little box was my inspiration for my latest project!
I found this on the side the road that said “FREE IF YOU TAKE IT NOW!!!” so I flipped a “U-ey” and hopped out to snag it before they changed their mind!
With my church dress, high heeled boots and all, I (allll by myself!) lifted this dresser, a bookcase and a twin headboard into my truck! I LOOOVVEEEE free furniture!!!
PS. I also love that my hubby bought me a sweet truck for moments such as this! 🙂
Here’s how I found it:
Hunny, I’m not sure what this mysterious stain is but be a dear and get me some Clorox wipes!!!!
It needed a little constructive work so I asked my personal
handyman handyMEN! Daddy and his little helpers! He reenforced the bottom of the drawer with some small trim nails and remounted the track for the top drawer.
I’m so thankful to the Jr. High girl that embellished this beauty with stickers and broke one of the drawers because her Mama decided to kick it to the curb!
My sister in law, Jodi wanted me to re-do this piece for her new room, I got it for free anyway. I agreed and she helped me with the project.
We scraped off the stickers, SCRUBBED it down really good, had hubby fix the minor constructive issues and we were ready to proceed!
I primed it with Kilz Spray Primer. My favorite primer.
Then, I sprayed it with Krylon Ocean Breeze. A blogland favorite for good reason! Its so perrtyy!
I used a sponge brush and hand painted the edges of all the detail and curves with this Folk Art Metallic Pearl White. It highlighted the details beautifully! This just MADE it!
I sprayed the hardware with Metallic Aluminum and sprayed the whole thing with Minwax Polycrylic in Satin.
Here’s what I got!
I wish it was mine. I love it!
So, have you painted anything Krylon’s Ocean Breeze?
