Nesting is in full swing and I’ve been busy tackling fun little projects over the last few days. In particular, I gave our casual dining space a little makeover; painting our toddler stools, adding in a new storage piece and also bringing life to some old decor.
Take a look at some of my projects!
My boys use wooden toddler chairs to eat at the table with us. They‘re the perfect height and we love them! One was purchased on Facebook Marketplace and the other from youthchairstore.com. IKEA also makes a similar chair called the “Junior Dining Chair”.
Prior to this project, our chairs were mismatched and didn’t coordinate with any of our existing furniture. I decided to chalk paint them white and I couldn’t be happier with the result!
For the transformation I used Annie Sloan “Old White” paint and Annie Sloan Clear Wax. No priming or sanding necessary!
Antique Jug Vase
My family is in the process of selling my grandparents home and I’ve been fortunate enough to inherit some keepsake items, one of them being an antique jug vase.
I modernized this piece by chalk painting the top and I’m so happy with its fresh look! I linked similar vases that you could easily transform as well.
Finally we added in a new furniture piece for additional storage. The baskets are perfect for loose cords, mail and other household items and I love that the mess is out of sight!
The sideboard was purchased at Homegoods and was $129.99.
To complete this space we used chalk paint (Annie Sloan “Old White”, Wax (Annie Sloan Clear), a chalk paint / wax brush (Renaissance professional) and painters tape. Annie Sloan products are only sold at specialty retailers, however I linked similar products below.
