1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / From white to Blue Lagoon on: January 17, 2014 12:27:44 PM
I recently discovered just how easy it was to repaint my kitchen aid stand mixer. It only cost me 15.00 in spray paint.



The tools: Screw drivers both Philips and flat head
               Spray paint - satin lagoon from rust-oleum  and crystal clear enamel also from rust-oleum



I took the top part from the base, removed the back that covers the motor and all metal that was held on by a screw. Then I taped the pieces that I didn't want painted and propped that bad boy up.




When everything was done drying * i gave it about 5 hours* I put everything back together and made sure my mixer still turned on lol



I cant seem to get a good photo of the finished color. It always turns out really blue but it looks more like the during pictures then my finished one.

Thanks for looking!

I found this beauty in the trash and decided I absolutely HAD to have it.

{Please note mandatory cat in photo}



Now my 1st idea was to paint it cream and decoupage this really pretty wrapping paper onto the top but I was limited with my supplies ..... grey primer spray paint and glossy almond spray paint. So I tested it with 1 drawer and to my amazement it made this beautiful crackle and looked totally shabby chic. I also spray painted the hardware with a metallic black paint and now I have an awesome dresser I have no idea what to do with.








Thank you for looking! C&C always welcome.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Awesome Table Make Over {pic heavy} on: February 08, 2012 11:06:27 AM
This is my 1st big redo project and post.

I am so proud of how it turned out.

This is the table before


Scratching all the paint off the glass


It looked nice like this, but I had a plan!


Ready for the "frost" I used privacy film for showers. Super easy to put on.


Spray painted the table and chair legs.{primer, paint and clear coat} I wouldn't recommend doing that on anything that gets used roughly. We are hard on our furniture and its already scratching off badly. This summer I will probably strip and stain it.



Halfway there


Then my chair adventure began!

As I was trying to decide what fabric I wanted I tested my skills with some pink polka dot fabric I had on hand.
It turned out super cute.


I finely decided on a Alexander Henry, Midnight Pastoral natural black fabric

I made a huge sleeve for the back of the chair and stapled the bottom so it fit


The seat - corners 1st




Finished chair



And the most beautiful thing that I have every created (besides my children)




And here's an up close pic of the fabric itself. I love it!!!!



Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed!!

Erin.
