Pretty Vintage

Hey guys!

Last week my parents "found" (it was in our storage room in a corner lol) this table-stool kind of thing that our neighbor built for us, a while back.

My mum thought it would be a great idea to put in my bedroom so that I could put all my hair stuff (blow dryer, straightener, curler etc). But the only thing was, it didn't look too great... :( it's definitely useful but I knew I had to paint it or something!! :)

I bought this little can of paint (it seems tiny but we painted this entire table with no issues) and it only cost me 3.99 euros!! (my thoughts on it are below. PS: I'm not a paint connaisseur).

You can RENEW everything, using a bit of imagination. Take an old piece of furniture and paint it with cute colours and designs! :)

You end up saving money and have fun while doing it!! ;)


(LUXE - Interior furniture and the shade is "violet eggplant" or N° 5. I translated it so I don't know if it's the correct name hahaha)



(Working with my beautiful mum)

(I don't even know...)




Tadaaaaaaa!! :) doesn't it look cute?? 

I chose a light color cause I wanted to see what I had on the table you know? :)

This paint did great!!

Pros
  • Only 1 layer needed
  • Dried really quickly
  • Didn't flake off
  • No scent
  • Very pigmented
  • Good consistency (not too runny and not too thick)
  • Quite affordable!!! 
Cons
  • The tin says "Matte" but it's not matte... It's more on the Satin side!

Whatcha think?

Stay dorky and weird.

Xoxo Jessy ♥

  20. Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual
    who actually understands what they are talking about online.
    You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people should read this and understand this side of your
    story. I was surprised that you're not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
