It’s furniture makeover time! My favorite time each month, because the inspiration of this creative group is incredible!
I feel so privileged to be included with such talent….specially this month.
Ugh! My planned furniture makeover that was going to be perfect for this category isn’t done. Eek!
So what does a DIYer do. Creative another piece that’s super easy and planked!
Furniture Makeover Storage
This is furniture makeover and not storage makeover! This ugly cabinet sits in our garage and holds the yucky paint. Yucky paint is spray paint, stains and regular paints. Non yucky paint is chalk based paints and craft paints. Those are stored in my craft room.
I bought 10 thin lattice wood strips for $1 each with a plan to plank the back. I taped eight strips together with painters tape and cut eight at a time.
This step was finished in 10 minutes using hot WOOD glue. Yep, you can find hot wood glue in most home improvement stores. Tip: Apply the hot glue in small dollops instead of a long line of glue.
When I was finished I noticed two boards were milled and then applied with a mirror effect.
Now for paint. I have a bucket o’paint that I dump any small amounts of leftover “whitish” paint. Another tip: When painting bookcases use a small handled paintbrush. They are easier to get into the corners and between the shelves.
The cabinet got a fresh coat of paint and the back planking was dry brushed with the white.
I decided to plank the top and take out the dated curved edges. Again I used the hot wood glue.
Extra strips were added along the top and side edges. No more curves! I had to take a picture of the cabinet dressed in knick knacks. I just grabbed what I could find.
Now it’s back to yucky paint storage!
I’m on a mission to find a bookcase for inside the house to plank!
I think I could plank a tall bookcase in 20 minutes!
Now it’s time to join me and visit these inspiring storage makeovers.
