This was one of those little pieces we found while we are out hunting for treasure. It didn’t appear to be anything special but it was solid wood, had nice detail and most of all the price was right! So we brought it home and added it to our ”to-do” list (pile). We’re not going to lie, it sat around for quite some time. It just wasn’t one of those pieces that scream to be done right away. Finally, one day while we were painting other pieces we decided to go ahead and paint it with some leftover paint. And are we glad we did! Wow, what a transformation!!! This piece is the perfect example of how a little paint can take a ”ho-hum” piece and really transform it. Now of course while it was sitting in that pile, did we ever think to take a before picture? NO! We feel like we’ve really cheated you out on this one. Our apologies. You’ll just have to take our word for it.
Ta-da! The paint and distressing just seemed to bring out all the beautiful detail. Seriously, it was really kind of meh before.
We decided to leave the hanging hardware on for the option of hanging it on a wall or setting it on a dresser or desk.
We painted it using our signature go-to DIY chalk paint using Behr Swiss Coffee. We gave it a light to medium distress and sealed it with clear wax.
Apparently, we aren’t the only ones who fell in love, it sold within seconds of posting it for sale.
As always, we want to thank you for taking the time to visit our site. We appreciate all of you so much!
