It seems like I am forever on a quest to clean up our garage. Now, if you saw our garage you would probably scratch your head and say to yourself “this place is a sty”. Admittedly our two-car garage is a mess and there are zero cars parked in it. Why? Because it is piled high with junk, furniture that needs to be repaired or painted and a plethora of paint cans, tools, etc. It’s too embarrassing to even show you a picture.
Now, the good thing about an over packed garage is that there is always a hidden treasure. A forgotten gem that I was going to do something with. Yesterday, I literally stumbled over two of these gems…a pair of resin urns – possibly Neo Classical in design. I’ve owned these urns for over 15 years. The have been displayed on fireplace mantles, dining room tables tops and side tables. Several years ago I determined that they were no longer my style and they were banished to the garage.
But, yesterday I had an idea. I grabbed one of the urns and the ingredients to make some of our Homemade DIY Chalk Paint in a creamy white.
Here’s the resin urn before it was painted. It looks okay but I wanted something more vintage looking.
My foyer table is an antique game table. The top folds in half and it becomes the perfect little side table – it has been in almost every room of my house at one time or another. I think it’s called a harp table.
