Desk Makeover!

So This We inherited this Desk...

and it needed a MAJOR FACELIFT

so we gave it one and we ended up loving it so well that we decided to make it our loving checkout station! For those of you in need of some furniture makeovers for any old pieces you have... Here is about the fastest way to spice up an oldie...

What you need for this project- 
*project piece
*Sand Paper
*Primer (optional)
*Matte Spray Finish or Matte paint on Varnish

To spice up the drawers if you would like you will also need- 
*Matte Modge Podge or Deco-podge
*Fabric or paper of choice
*Sponge Paint Brushes
*Some fun new Knobs or handles

Step #1 - Sand all surfaces you will be painting. I don't own a pro sander... so it is all by hand. This little tool from Home Depot saved me. Interchangeable papers that are cheap and throw away, I would recommend them to anyone. Go see what they have for you.. lots to pick from! Don' t sand it to death... just get the old finish of and little scuffs and scratches... but don't freak over all flaws... it gives the piece personality and shabbiness!

Step #2 - Once you have chosen your color you Need to determine whether or not you need a primer. When buying the color of paint just ask a rep if it will be strongly altered by the under color of your furniture... or just try a dab yourself and decide. For our we used black so it was a no brainer!

Step #3 - First Coat - We chose a Basic Black MATTE paint. Deciding the type of look you want is important... we didn't want gloss so we got matte! Make sure you cover everywhere you want to be covered, don't worry... you will more than likely be able to see streaks... these will be covered by ...

Step #4 - Second Coat - Apply evenly (and be sure you don't leave any drips)

Step#5 - That Shabby Look - Sand where Desired! Hit the corners hardest always! I like to sand kinda randomly so it is over the top but here and there... anywhere there is a lip of any sort... just rub down a little with some sand paper! It looks great letting the under color come through a little and makes an old piece of Furniture look almost new again!!

 Step # 6  - Finish - Then apply your finish! Remember... watch for matte or gloss... We chose Matte once again! 

(Optional Step # 7, 8 ...and that is all unless you are wanting to jazz up the drawers a little... then you can Modge podge some fabric or paper on! Here is a great tutorial on Modge Podging or Decopodge!) This Woman is Amazing!!! 
So cute! I will be doing this... but for now until we choose the PERFECT pattern... brown drawers are great with us!

 So have fun with your piece! This is about as easy as you can get! (Easiest is Spray paint.. but it almost impossible to apply that evenly and toxic)

So now you Know! And if you ever get sick of the color you chose! You know how to change it!
Do enjoy!

Fun With Buttons!

So theres a problem. When buying buttons to replace one gone missing or just from life...

random buttons seemed to gather around! We have got just the project to use up those buttons!

So fun for scrapbooker's and great for kids too! What kid isn't always looking for something new and fun to do! So here it is!

Repurposing Fun shaped Buttons and making Stamps!! 
So fun! 

Button Stamp How-To
1. Select buttons with raised surfaces and distinct patterns -- fluted edges, stars, flowers, cat's eyes, and pinwheels. With white craft glue, mount buttons on wine or craft corks; if possible, use a cork narrower than the button so you can see to position the stamp accurately. Buy already inked stamp pads in several colors from your stationer. Uncoated papers are most receptive to the ink. Since buttons are rigid, you'll get the best image by laying paper over a piece of felt or a stack of folded paper towels before stamping. Press button into pad, then stamp, rocking it gently; this ensures a complete edge.

2. Wipe the stamp clean on a damp sponge between impressions. Try layering some of the simpler images for enhanced effect

What a fun and quick project that can serve as tons of fun for later!! Enjoy!

Mismatched Plate Rack

We came across a fun new page while browsing along! Isn't this such a cute idea! 
At Beach Vintage Simone Georgette gives all kinds of ideas about decorating, crafting and everyday life things! Here she gives us a sneak peek at a little piece of her kitchen! How do you get this look? Grab a plate rack, paint it how you want and beat it up and sand it a little to give it that worn out shabby feel, then find a stud to hang it for you! Then keep a watchful eye! Anytime you see a random plate that you love... grab it! We all know how great thrift stores and ross are for random plates! 
" If there's one thing I love it's mismatching." She says! And we agree! So cute! She will be posting more pictures from her adorable house over the next week or two so check back at her page for more fun and inspiring ideas! Let us know how it works for you!
