I have been working hard on my family room update. I would love to have it done before Thanksgiving so I can take pictures for the reveal before I decorate for Christmas. Fingers crossed that can happen!
Here is the latest project for my family room.
A long time ago I built two cabinets for extra storage. I painted one red and heavily distressed it. I built another one and painted it blue for my boys.
The red one was in my family room. But I did not want to paint it because I ADORE it and want to put it in another room later on. So I put it in the boys room and painted the blue one instead.
I wanted to paint it white and then sand it to distress it. But I did not want the blue paint to show when I sanded. So I painted it dark brown first, then painted it white. I used a very fine grit sandpaper (220) to sand it in certain places to make it look old and worn.
Now that it is done and in place I can’t wait to start hanging things on the wall above it!
