It’s easy to see we’re BIG fans of upcycling! With a little elbow grease and a lot of vision we like to save pieces of furniture from boredom! Chevron is still going this year in the design world so we thought we would it would be fun to do one of our sad 6 drawer dressers in this fun pattern!
First we chose a simple dresser with more than 4 drawers. Pro-tip: More is more when it comes to drawers! it’s easier to map out the pattern, plus extra storage! (what did you think I was going to say?)
Decide your base colour. This isn’t always easy, but if you stick to neutrals chances are you’ll love it a lot longer! Our go to for whites *which also happen to be on sale right now* are cloud white, white dove and extra white. The base colour we went with was Simply White. The grey we chose was Chelsea Gray both of which were colour matched by Sherwin Williams.
First we sprayed the base coat and then allowed for full curing before mapping out our chevron pattern in paint! *This step is VERY important* if the paint is soft the tape may lift it.
Using painters tape and paper we layed out how the chevron pattern would look with all the drawers in place in the dresser. Once we were happy we measured out how thick the lines would be and started taping.
It is now transformed and ready for it’s new home and at $225 it’s a steal! please call 905-631-7336 if you would like to be it’s proud new parent!
Just a reminder that we will be closed Monday, February 16th, 2015 for Family Day! We will resume normal hours of 10am-5pm Tuesday through Saturday.
Have a great long weekend!
Planning a kitchen makeover? They don’t need to cost a fortune! You’ve heard us say it over and over, but it’s transformations like these that make us so proud of what we help people do in their own homes! It doesn’t take a tonne of money, sometimes just a few key investments can make the most profitable (and stylish) return on your home. Everyone knows the kitchen is where we gather, but in this case, you might never leave!
We met Melissa back in August. She is a blogger, designer and dreamer all rolled into one cute package! Her kitchen, unlike her, was plain. It had a functioning layout, good solid cabinets with a flat profile, and nice black appliances. Basically her kitchen had all the ingredients for an upgrade rather than a full scale reno.
This is what it looked like:
Using a mood board and collecting images that she loved from Pinterest (pssst you can follow us AND the sweet escape on Pinterest @ Melissa / the sweet escape and Paint it Like New! Inc.) she started sourcing the items she would need to make her vision come to life!
The colour she chose for the cabinets was Cooled Blue by Sherwin Williams and Tricorn Black. The hardware, which was absolutely stunning and extremely reasonably priced is shown here:
The wood theme was again recreated on the bulkhead above in a chevron pattern. We also love that she tied in the black appliances by painting the island black for a well thought out cohesive look! This retro-mod kitchen is refreshed and ready for company! Cheers Melissa!
