When I think of summer I think of the smell of fresh cut grass, baseball, eating dinner on the patio, and sunshine!  And, with that in mind came my inspiration for this adorable pair of chairs. I love the shape and detail of the backs and I just knew if I dug deep into my armoire of paint I would pull out the perfect color to accompany one of my favorite fabrics. 

The first thing I did was remove the pads & rip off the tired old navy stripe fabric.  I saved one of the covers for a template, which I always like to do so I have an accurate measurement for the yardage I need for the new fabric.

After giving the chairs a good wipe down, I put on a nice even coat of "Fresh Mustard" by Country Chic Paint. Then I lightly sanded with 220 grit to smooth out any brush strokes, and topped them off with another coat of paint and a durable coat of Tough Coat to help protect against the daily wear & tear by these two (see exhibit "a" & "b").

I really think this color just screams - bright, bol...

You know when you see a piece of furniture and you just feel the need to buy it? Well, this charming table was priced right & has that french provincial curviness that everyone loves!  I think it's the perfect size for an entry table or a sofa table, actually now that I think about it, it would be so cute as a vanity in a powder bath as well! 

 I love being able to look past that extra glossy top coat and imagine the possibilities and I just knew that a couple coats of Country Chic Paint would do the trick!  I wanted a versatile color - one that's neutral but not boring so I chose "Rocky Mountain" All-In-One Decor Paint

 I began by painting two even coats on the entire table & I lightly sanded with 220 grit in between coats.  When working with a smooth, sleek surface like this top, I really try to stretch the paint from one end to the other to avoid any unwanted brush strokes.  Sanding...

Hey Everyone,

It's been a little while, but the Salvage Sisters are back and ready for action.  We found this tall boy dresser in decent condition - besides the obvious, there was some good ol' 1980's contact paper stuck all over the drawer bottoms, but we saw past it's flaws & turned this functional piece of furniture into something fabulous!

We really think this piece is perfect for any space, whether it be in a kids bedroom, adult bedroom, or even in a mud room because it has such great storage.  

We decided to go with Country Chic Paint in "Icicle".  It's such a soft, pale blue & adds a little touch of cheer to anything we grace with it's color! Check out the Country Chic Pinterest board for more inspiring photos using Icicle!

We started off with a single coat, lightly sanded with 220 grit to smooth out any brush strokes we may have created & then one more final coat.  To seal and protect it, we used Country Chic Paint Hemp Oil.  

Oh! and a little something extra on...
