Executive Desk with Damaged Leather Top Gets a Makeover


Executive desk painted French Linen Old White

I purchased this executive desk at an auction. The bidding competition was sparse to say the least, and I believe that was because of the damaged leather top. But I thought it would be a good project to work on, so I was happy to be the lucky winner.

Vintage Rocking Chair with Damaged Finish Gets a New Look


Rocking chair painted black

I was in a thrift store to pick up another item, and spotted this rocking chair on my way out. No way was I leaving it behind! I definitely have an affinity for rocking chairs!

Modern Sofa Table Transformed with Chalk Paint


Sofa table painted with chalk paint

This sofa table is one of my favorite transformations! Actually whichever project I'm currently working on tends to be my favorite, but this is definitely in the top ten.

It's a modern-day manufactured table. It was manufactured with some sort of wood composite materials and had a shiny factory finish. The construction is solid and it's not a bad looking piece. I gravitate towards vintage pieces, but the modern-day furniture works well for painting, too. Many times it's a little lighter and easier to move around than solid wood furniture.
