Welcome to Furniture Fix Up blog hop day at the Creative Chick Parade! We’ll be back next week with our regular We Did It! Wednesday party. Today’s blog hop will definitely be my favorite of the week, as I LOVE to see all of your before and after furniture projects.
Although I’ve (let’s be honest, I mean Joel and I) done my first few fix ups in the past year (you can see them here, here, and here), I’m most excited about my next one. My husband is not. He seems to find an excuse to NOT get started on it every time I bring it up. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that he’ll be doing all the lifting, restoring, and basically any other hard work associated with the project.
Here it is:
What do you think about the drawer pulls? On one hand I’d like to keep them to keep some of the antique-ness, but at the same time I can’t say that I LOVE to look at them, so maybe I should get some crystal knobs instead? Maybe a combination of both?
It does freak me out to think of changing such an old piece of furniture (not that it’s freaked me out in the past, maybe this is worse because it’s so big), but at the same time if I’m going to keep it in my bedroom, it should be something that I love, and that makes me happy to look at, right?
Okay, so before you get linking, here’s the question: How would you refinish or paint it? I’d love to hear ALL of your thoughts, and I promise I’m not just saying that. The last time we were talking about it, I even told Joel, “well, I’m going to ask my readers, cause I know that they’ll give me the best ideas. They know what would be best.” Seriously, I really said that! The craziest part is that he seemed to agree with me! Hehe, I guess he thinks you’re all cool (or at least cooler than me!) too :).
Make sure to take a minute and check out my fellow Creative Chick Paraders too, some of them are doing giveaways and other fun things that you won’t want to miss! Here they all are:
