$29 Sideboard Makeover

Note from Laurie: My friend Cheryl is in the process of making over her living room, and goodness, I LOVE what she's done! She was sweet enough to share with us here on PPP ~ take a peek . . . 

Wow . . . 


Just . . . wow!


I'm in the middle of a living room makeover (we finally updated our couches after 10 years) and after a tense afternoon of tax preparation . . . this was clearly NOT the time to buy more furniture. 🙂 


Our search for sideboards has been going on for M O N T H S ~ all around the $500 range.  This had me thinking . . . why not just paint the one we have now?



$29 can of chalk paint & wipe-on poly (optional – this was in the garage from previous projects)


If you haven't use chalk paint before, it is amazing. 


No prep.


No sanding.


Just, paint!



I went to Lowes and bought a $29.00 can of chalk paint, painted this beautiful sideboard to match my new furniture and in just a few hours it was done.


Before . . .




After . . .



I'm thrilled with how it turned out!!  I can't wait to show you the rest … ALL on a penny pinched budget (I'm learning a few things here at PPP! 🙂

  1. I went to Home Depot to get chalk paint an saw all the colors, but what I was looking for was chalk board pain. which is a big difference. I didn’t know that they were different an was glad i asked the guy there, I would have been very up set when I got home. What I did was got black chalkboard paint an the door to the garage is right next to my appliances in the kitchen, so I painted the top two inner parts of the panel with the chalkboard paint so now when I run out of something or need something it is right there on my chalk board panels. Love it an so does everyone who see it.
