New Entry! Before and Afters!!

Before

Hey Mr.Green table. I still like you but you need to retire.





After



Helllooo Mr.Blue farm table! Not sure if I'll keep you blue. But for now you'll do. Scored this cutie for $40 and a trade today. I love trades!




Lighter!





Brighter!







Chippy-er!








 And just plain...farm-ier.





The wrinkles on that one pillow are really bothering me. But I can't think about that now, I'll think about that tomorrow. :)







Like my vintage potato masher? haha







And eventually the cheapy blue and brown rug will be replaced by a sisal. I'll let the kids and lab beat it up first. Shouldn't take long. : /


And next to all of this, further down the entry way under the stairs...

Remember the French pie safe? Painted the same pale blue?






Most of these items were things I had stashed away or hand me downs. Somehow when you move them around they seem new again.

So there you have it. More of my attempts to make a brand new house look old and beat up. Sometimes I wonder about my sanity. :D

I am loving the lighter, brighter, chippier, farm look! Did you mix that color yourself? What a great blue color. Good job! Looks great for summer. (I love the summer look all year round ;))

Heh.

You are hilarious.

Hubs thinks all the chippy lovers are insane.

But we won't think about that now, we'll think about it tomorrow, eh Scarlett?

Hugs.

Love the new look, Linsey. I know what you mean about your sanity. I think we all suffer from this dilemma in some shape or form!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I have an abundance of cracked plaster walls I could share with you. And lots of chippy paint...on the front stairs outside. I'm trying to make my house look "newer" and you're trying to make your house look "old". :@

Fun farm table to display your old chippy treasures!

Oh my goodness! I love your table there. I like the blue. Don't change it! I also love how you've styled it. The basket underneath holding pillows is perfect there. I love the book bundles in those chippy old looking bookends and the house numbers scattered on top. Really cute!
