Add texture and character to any old piece of furniture with Wood Icing, a textura paste faux finish.
To create the effect, cover your furniture with the Wood Icing textura paste and an off set knife. Use a spray bottle filled with water to wet down your texture (in my case cheap shelf liner paper). Press the shelf liner into the Wood Icing, smooth over with a plastic spreader, peel back the shelf liner and see the textured finish!
Once the Wood Icing faux finish had dried, I painted the accent table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

You have to purchase it. Visit my site for the link:
Why spend the money on new bedroom furniture when you can simply transform your current set with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware!
I removed the old hardware and completely sanded the nightstand, dresser and mirror. For the paint I chose Valspar flat black. I used a small foam roller to paint the large surfaces and a brush for the detailed areas. Be careful with the paint job until it fully cures so you won't get any knicks or scratches (about 7 days).
Entire makeover cost around $50 for paint and supplies, then another $50 for the hardware.
Makeover was completed about a year and a half ago and still looks great!

You can fill in the holes with wood putty and sand down. Then drill new holes. I've done this
technique with plenty of furniture makeovers! You can't tell at all where the previous holes were.
if you're lucky enough to have space to craft in your home, then you know that it can get unorganized fast.
My hubby and I built the 10ft long desk ourselves using stock white cabinets from Lowe's. We now have plenty of storage for my craft stash in the cabinets and the drawers, plus there's still two places to sit. The 10ft long desk top also provides a great tabletop workspace, even for the larger projects.
I also wanted everything to be within an arms's reach. Two 2x3ft framed peg boards sit above the desk, both packed with tools and accessories.
On the desktop I have mason jars filled with goodies... paintbrushes, decorative scissors, writing utensils and hand tools.
I even added some silverware organizers in the drawers to help arrange my smaller items (like buttons, washi tape and resin flowers).
My Silhouette Cameo now has a special place right on the desktop, and my vinyl and tools are tucked away neatly the a drawer.
I found an old little table at a flea market and wanted to give it a bit of a makeover for our family room using our family Surname.
To begin I painted the top of the table a creamy yellow color. Once it dried, I place the vinyl lettering that I designed and had printed on top of the table. I painted the entire table in black, including directly over the vinyl lettering.
Once the black paint dried, I carefully peeled up the vinyl lettering. Now you can see the light creamy yellow color and it reveals "The Hankins Family, est. 2005"
