Peacock Blue Hexagon End Table - Before & After

 

This vintage hexagon end table had seen it’s better day. That is, until it was upstyled! Of all the old pieces of furniture I like to refinish, hexagon end tables stand out on top.

Weary and worn, I have little desire to see these dated pieces in my home. Refinished with paint, glaze, and distressing, they take on a whole new life of character and eye-catching appeal.

This piece is upstyled in in distressed Peacock Blue. Black glaze accents the detailed areas. And old lion’s head pulls replaced the pulls original pulls (since one of them was broken).

This piece is also featured in our Hexagon End Tables Collection, which shows how these pieces have been refinished in all kind of colors!

Rustic Turquoise Maple Dresser – Before & After

Rustic Turquoise Dresser - Before & After

This maple six drawer dresser had serious issues! Initially, I wondered what I was thinking to have purchased it. It was spray painted purple and veneer was missing on the top corners. I threw out what pulls were left because they were spray painted a tacky looking silver.

After making repairs and sanding, paint, glaze, and distressing did their magic! Turquoise brought the dresser back to life. Black Glaze highlighted the years of wear on the original finish, creating an eye-catching weathered look. New knobs and pulls topped off the rustic feel of this piece.White-SPACE Rustic Turquoise Dresser FLF

How paint, glaze and distressing open new doors in a home for dressers. From the Facelift Furniture DIY Blog.When dressers are given a new life with paint, glaze and distressing, doors open to how they may be used all over a home.

Dressers are not only an obvious option for a bedroom, but make fantastic consoles for flat screen TV’s. Many have chosen that open with dressers I’ve refinished.

When dressers are painted, glazed and distressed their old look receives such an upgrade that they may also be used in a large entry area or as a buffet in a dining area.

And when using latex enamel, the color options are endless. We have our favorites, but the sky is the limit when color is used to transform any piece of furniture.
