It was silly of me to get these chairs from the Thrift Store because I'm having hard time selling them.
Altho stuff with coffee sacks sells pretty well. Got 50 bucks at the Garage sale for all my hard work and a lesson not to buy ugly chairs.
One of my friends smuggled this weirdness into my car after our dinner. "make something out of it" The table was made of kind of plaster covered plywood. So there was really nothing much I could do besides painting it black. I sanded the rough and broken areas, dismantled the lamp, used BIN spray primer and then applied matte black spray paint.
SOLD "Before" and "During"
I have loved these walls for over 10 years now, since they
started popping up in interior magazines. Better late then never, I thought, and
decided to "invent a bicycle" since there is not a single tutorial on the
Internet on how to achieve the same results. Unless I order fake paneling
We got a sheet of Drywall. Cut it to the blocks according to
our design. Then measured the holes and used a circular drill bit to pre-cut
the holes. Then we glued and screwed the pieces of drywall on the wall.
I used Gray Concrete Patch (It doesn't shrink!) and spackled the whole wall. The holes needed to be done twice since it cracked overnight. Basically,
a good steady hand is needed for applying the top coat. Especially on the
corners. For the ridges we used a grooving tool.
Also this vintage walnut linen cabinet got a new face - this is "Before" I stripped it down and applied Danish Oil
