We’ve been in this house for almost eight years and I never decorated the foyer. I’d seen all sorts of painted chests that I could use for the area but, never forked out the cash. Truth be told, it wasn’t a big deal because I figured that this was so temporary, by the time I decorated the foyer we’d probably be moving. Yeah, right!
Eight years with an empty foyer was all changed in the matter of a quick trip onto Pinterest. There, I found a link to one of my new favorites, The Yellow Cape Cod. Interior Design Blogger, Sarah Macklem, did a post/video tutorial on How to achieve the Pottery Barn Black Finish on furniture. With her instructions, some supplies, and a bargain piece that I found at a local antique shop, I was ready to create my masterpiece!
|Found on the porch of a local junk antiques shop for way less than the sticker price.|
|All sanded/painted/sanded(3x), waxed & buffed(3x), and finished with new knobs.|
This was one of my favorite projects to date. Take heed to Sarah’s warning: You’ll want to make more!
