Another project in the books with some COLOR! I so hate to admit it, but I totally forgot to take a before picture! Ugg, I hate that! Hopefully you can picture it, dark brown legs and a faux leather black top!
I started out thinking I was going to paint this a turquoise blue. I started spraying and ran out of paint! Back to my stash of paint and I came up with some red and thought; what the heck!
Thrift Otoman Makeover, yeah for spending no money!
This piece came from a yard sale at my neighbors house. Thankfully they are super meticulous about taking really good care of everything! This piece was an oldie, but in pristine condition.
Wouldn't this be a fun little piece at a piano? Oh, this is making me think of the coolest piano...check it out!
Hope you have a great day!

I decided I needed to go way out there with a color, seems like I have been playing it pretty safe lately! I bought this can of orange spray paint awhile back and it has been sitting and sitting in the garage.
Oh phew, I did find a before picture! You never know with me!
This chair was such a pain! The screws underneath were a square head, and of course I didn't have this tool! Took me forever to remember to pick one up at the store!
Just for fun, I spray painted the orange velvety upholstery. Yeah...so not cute (note to self, don't waste paint!)
I sprayed the entire piece with 2 coats of the orange paint.
Some pretty cute legs!
After the paint was dry I used some black glaze and rubbed it all over.
The glaze is the best at toning down the color a bit, and bringing out all the fun details.
I kept it pretty simple with the upholstery! I didn't want to be too out there, lol! This is just a piece of drop cloth on the seat.
I was thinking this would make a great piece for a fall porch display, what do you think?
Yeah for fun parties to share on!

Remember when I did this little makeover on an old vanity mirror?
