In preparation for the big move, we’ve been cleaning up and rearranging furniture. Well, one thing led to another, and last weekend I found myself painting the coffee and side tables from the playroom.
As if I needed more things to do.
But, honestly, aren’t they lovely?
If you’ve been following for some time, you might recognize the side table, which I painted last year and gave a fun, chippy finish. But for some time now, I’ve been planning to sell them. We just didn’t need the extra furniture in the playroom.
Now that we’re selling, though, we wanted to show off the sun room (which is what our playroom really is) in all its glory.
I just love the sunlight streaming through the plantation shutters.
And the gray armoire (you can see that makeover here) is a bit darker, but I think it complements them nicely.
This was such a simple makeover. I sanded each piece just to give a smooth finish (since the chippy finish from before would have been hard to disguise). Each got two coats of Country Chic Paint (a chalk-based paint which covers beautifully) in Pebble Beach.
I finished the pieces with a full coat of clear wax and just a touch of dark wax in the creases.
Such a simple, clean look. I love the glass front drawer and this little vintage-looking knob from Hobby Lobby.
What do you think?
Is this a buyer-friendly, welcoming sunroom?
