Getting down and dirty with refinished furniture

We all love Craigslist, right?  It’s such a great place to browse for inspiration and inexpensive furniture items that can take your home decor to a whole new level.  Sometimes all it takes is a little TLC to turn one man’s junk into another man’s treasure.

I’ve been on a mission lately to find some great white wicker pieces to furnish a guest room.  I scoured Craigslist trying to find the perfect items to fulfill my shabby chic vision for this particular room and hit the jackpot a few weekends ago when I brought home a headboard, night stand, dresser and mirror that are still in pretty good shape.  All they need is a new coat of paint to freshen them up.

Furniture projects can get kind of messy.  Not only do you need to worry about protecting the surfaces you’re working on or near but you also need to work on protecting your own clothing as well!  Throw on one of our Pretty in Gingham aprons to keep yourself clean and make use of the two extra large pockets on the front to hold on to any miscellaneous items you may need like nails, a hammer, painters tape, an extra paint brush, a can of spray paint or a measuring tape.  Make clean-up a cinch by storing an extra towel, cleaner, or trash bag in your apron pockets.  There are an unlimited number of ways our aprons can help you get your projects done!

I can’t wait to start sprucing up my new wicker bedroom set!
