Bold color is a risk in most homes, and painting a piano is rather unconventional. In this case, however, both variations embody the homeowner's eccentric, spunky spirit.
The room that was a catch-all is now eye-catching. Unifying the furniture with coordinating fabric and paint elevates the maturity scale of the room to adult status.
Save the style and hide the sins of old chairs with slipcovers. Just place new fabric inside out over the chair and pin along the lines of the piece. Sew along the seams and voila: remix magic.
This entertainment center had a former life as a rustic coffee table. Raising it on wooden legs and painting it black transforms it into a usable, sleek piece of furniture. And the size is ideal for a small wall or corner.
Working with concrete on a small scale is easy. Concrete tint and rebar create visually pleasing, stable concrete slabs. Casters make the heavy tables portable and versatile, providing extra seating when needed.
