Painted Entertainment Stand in Hale Navy

It is on a daily basis that I get asked questions either about a project that I have worked on in the past or a person has their own project they’d like some advice on. I’m eager to help and try to be informative. This time around, however, I am able to physically help out a local follower with this piece she had. Her second-hand find is about to become a painted entertainment stand. Check it out.

DIY Denim Paint on Antique Chest of Drawers

You know that it’s hard for me to pass up an offer for not only a free piece of furniture, but also an antique. Can you blame me? No joke…I had just emptied my home of any extra furniture when my cousin tagged me in her friend’s feed offering up this antique chest of drawers. I felt obliged to…er…help. tee hee. The fun thing is that this piece inspires me to give it a DIY denim paint effect. Hang on to see what I mean. (giveaway alert!)

You might be thinking…denim?? Well, let me explain. When I get a well-loved, free piece of furniture I count it as fair game to have some fun. Thankfully, all of the original brass knobs were present (some inside drawers). Those knobs totally remind me of Read more

Vintage Dixie Dresser with Frottage Paint Technique

Are you in the mood for a furniture makeover? I am! Funny thing how the internet works. It studies your behaviors and throws ads up that it thinks you will be interested in. Well, it worked this time. I spied this for sale in a local market only because an ad popped up and I was hooked. I mean, just look at that beautiful bow front! sigh… Now it’s time for not only a makeover of this vintage Dixie dresser, but also some fun for you too.

Repurposed Plant Stand with Patina Paint

It’s a fun day when I get to start my creative juices flowing with all the fantastic #trashure finds I find during city spring cleanup. One day in particular I was outside spray painting listening to all the junky trucks driving around our neighborhood as they shopped Curb le Chic. It was our quadrant’s turn and I was being a good girl staying home until the last day. My neighbor came over to ask me if I wanted seedling pots he was throwing out. As he was talking I looked at his pile and asked, “Is that a stool in your trash?” He replied, “No, an ash tray”. We walked over together to inspect his loot. Thus begins the story of my repurposed plant stand.

Antique Chest of Drawers ~ Hand-Painted Florals

It’s been a fun run or making over the stash of furniture I purchased from a storage unit. If you need to catch up, you can see the previous pieces here: (1) Mid Century Modern dresser (2) antique dresser (3) waterfall chest. Now it’s time for the last piece from that haul of goodies. Needless to say I also have more from other places, but…here is an antique chest of drawers that looks like a match to the dresser I have in my bedroom. Isn’t it a beauty?

Vintage Vanity Painted a Soft Pink

Do you ever have conversations with someone that leave you saying, “That was really weird”? While perusing Craigslist I came upon this piece advertised as a desk. To me it looked like a vanity without a mirror. I called to inquire and he said he still had it. Sweet! Stay with me as I show you how this “desk” became a vintage vanity painted a soft tea rose pink.

I continued to ask the seller if there was anything wrong with it and if it was smoke-free. He replied that it was solid as a rock, smoke-free, and would take him quite some time to dismantle it to get it out of his basement. He also said he had another buyer coming to see it first. I said, “Oh, it’s that big?” He replied, “Yes, and you’ll need help to load it.” I went on to ask more questions, but still getting the feeling like something was off. Read more

Updated Dresser with Pulls, Paint, & Stain

Do you find stress relief in work? I’m one of those the will clean my house lickety-split when I am one hot mama. hahaha… That’s kinda how I feel about furniture and my creative projects too. There are times when I am downright frazzled and wore to the bone, then when I go get creative my woes are gone. I talk to God during that time and it feels so good. We’ve had some major setbacks in the last few weeks and I decided to take it out on this piece today. Let me show you how I turned it into an updated dresser. PLUS, I have an awesome giveaway for you!

Vintage Dresser Before Updating | Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

You might be wondering what’s wrong, well we’ve found a pest in the wood we are using for our kitchen countertops. No big deal, just treat and move on, but that set us back 3 weeks finding the source, the solution, and waiting on it to arrive. Then our vehicle had issues and when they were supposed to be fixed the dude who repaired it caused more damage. We even had Read more

Girl’s Bedroom Set Refreshed with Paint, Paper & Pulls

It’s always good to know when to pick your battles, right? For instance, I know that when I am on Craigslist I will find projects, and when I find projects, I will not be able to resist them. Then, that leads to overload in my workshop and me asking myself, “What did you do?!?” Solution: STAY OFF CRAIGSLIST. There. I said it. To validate my logic, let me show you what happens when I take a peek at Craigslist. See this? That is the result of looking for 5 minutes. Yup. Now, stay with me here as Mr. I and I will show you how it became a girl’s bedroom set.
