Mrs. Norris Gets A Makeover

Last weekend at a neighborhood garage sale one of the items we bought was this cute little end/ night table.

She was the perfect size and in pretty good shape, except for the sticker on the front. But that did give her a name. I often see other bloggers naming their furniture pieces. Do you?? 

She got a good cleaning and the sticker came off easily using Citra-Solv which I purchased for another project that did not turn out so well. I originally got it to transfer graphics but just ended up with a black blob. The good part is it smells wonderful and it a great all purpose cleaner (My Opinion).

She was then painted Duck Egg by Annie Sloan, distressed and waxed.

By far this was the fastest makeover I have ever done.

The top and shelf area were just lightly sanded, re-stained and sealed with Poly.

I like the contrast with the painted and dark wood.

Her original knobs were used as well.

I love the distressed look and it was the perfect finishing touch for Mrs. Norris.

She is now in her new home at The Coop Antiques in Oviedo.

We are excited for the opportunity to have another booth location.

Please stop by in person and LIKE them on Facebook.

Mrs. Norris would love to go home with you.

Thank for stopping by,
