Fabulous Finish: Wicker table Revamped; Guest Post

07 May 2010

Remodelaholic's Anonymous Link Party Go Here

Jane over at Finding Fabulous had this great little makeover, and I seriously love how it turned out.   Go check out her blog.  (she also has a Friday link party just FYI, but make sure you link up to Remodelaholic's Anonymous before you go!! Pretty-Please)  This is what Jane did:

This end table on our screened-in-porch was in serious need of a makeover!  
Here's the "after", like any good ravamp brace yourself for the "before".


Yup, were talkin' D-R-A-B city!


I used Krylon Spray Paint in Ivy Leaf...love this color! 


Here we've got a good coat of spraypaint.  Such an improvement, but something's missing.  It needs some character!


I mixed a glaze with dark brown latex paint and water (equal parts).  Just brushed it on, and wiped the excess off with a rag.  Super easy! 


Now this table has some color and character....love that!


Got some old wicker?  Revamp it with paint and glaze and your old furniture will look great again!

I think that the glaze makes the piece, 
don't you think?  It gives it so much character... 
Now I just need to find someone's cast off wicker furniture!!!
