There was this amazing midcentury bookcase with glass doors that entered my life and I knew that it had the potential to be spectacular! (Shout out to Natalie’s boyfriend, Anthony, for finding this piece for me).
The first thing that popped in my mind when I saw it was a midcentury modern bar. I wanted to give this piece a makeover and transform it into something beautiful. Trying to decide on a paint color for a piece is the most stressful and exciting part. I want to make sure that I choose the right color the first time to avoid having to redo it once finished.
Every time I am given a piece of furniture to beautify, I try to imagine how I want it to look like in the end. I will strive and work hard to make it look like or surpass how I envisioned it. I can honestly say that this bench went above and beyond how I imagined it.
A customer of mine found this bench on the curb and it was going to be thrown out. I am so happy that she was able to rescue it because she saw the potential it had. She wanted the bench to be painted white and distressed with navy and white fabric for the seat.
Let the beautifying process begin!
The project that you are about to see has to be by far one of my favorite pieces that Nat and I made in 2017.
We were able to transform a dresser into a bar!
I found this dresser and immediately saw how amazing it could look if it was flipped into this great bar. The dresser had amazing bones and was SOLID wood, so….it was very very heavy. Thankfully with the help of my friend, Lori, I was able to transport it back to my house to be beautified.
