If you aren’t a fan of our Facebook page, you may not know yet that I quit my job. I officially finished last week and I’m nervous, but really excited about having the extra time to devote to FunCycled and custom furniture for you. I had worked at this job for almost nine years so I have to admit, it’s a bit of an adjustment, but life is ever changing and I’m excited and humbled to have this opportunity. As part of the new changes, I would like to introduce Tuesday’s Treasures! Each Tuesday, I will post one of our new creations! I may add others during the week, but I’m planning, at the very least, to show you a new piece each Tuesday. To start of our Tuesday’s Treasures list, here is a beautiful, pale sage green oak dresser and matching night stand that we just finished.
I did a totally different technique on this dresser using Benjamin Moore paint and primer in one. I applied it using a dry brush onto wood that was old and ready to soak up the paint. It wouldn’t work well with anything that has a poly or high gloss finish. This piece was asking me to try the new technique and I LOVE how it turned out. I watched a few videos on it to make sure my idea was going to work. I always like when someone else has done something that I thought might work. Lol! If only I was the first one to think of it.
It needed knobs, repair, and plain old paint lovin’! :) Let me know what you think and thanks again for all the encouragement from our readers this week. You guys are the best!!
