Bergere Chair Painted Upholstery with General Finishes Chalk Style Paint

Hi friends. Have you ever painted fabric?  I have not, but have been reading up on painting upholstery and stalking other bloggers' pages to see their results and I have to say that I am amazed at their transformations.

This month I am joining in on the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest hosted by General Finishes Paint Company. Our theme is "A Fresh Start".  When Mom and Dad gifted this piece to me I thought it would be the perfect candidate...Grandma's Bergere Chair!

Ugly Old EndTable Upcycle

So many times you pass up old furniture, don't you.  Well after you see what I bought, you may change your mind on how you view those ugly old relics.

Introducing Beep II Samaritan's Purse Auction and Giveaway!

My friend, Larissa of Prodigal Pieces has been super busy these days.  It all started when she found an old discarded waterfall dresser and transformed it into cool new Volkswagen Bus! I think it's amazing and many, many others think so much that she now has many custom orders in the works.

Here is BEEP II, in such a vibrant red just in time for Christmas!

And you are at the right place because guess what, she is hosting an ebay auction to win Beep II! She is donating the proceeds to Samaritan's Purse. You read that right, and is also giving away some other great prizes valued at $350! Here are the details...

Black Mirrored Dresser Makeover

A friend recently asked me to work on a dresser for her. She wasn't a big fan of its current state...Pepto Pink!  I don't blame her, Pepto makes me gag and this was no exception. Also gotta love it when your kiddos decide to dress up your furniture with those cute little animal stickers!

Let's just get that pepto pink image out of our minds, shall we?  And take a look at this...
