    Hello friends! In this video I have created a compilation of 10 furniture projects from my channel. The pieces in this video are mostly farmhouse, shabby chic, glam, and boho, but could easily appeal to other styles as well. I will be linking the playlist that has all of my past furniture projects on it so you can watch the full length makeovers of every one of these projects if you want to get more detailed information about their transformations.

They come apart into a few pieces to make it easier to clean. I use an hvlp from harbor freight with a 20 gal air compressor. You need to wash them immediately after use before the paint dries inside.

But why are you spray painting wood? Half the pigment blew away. I won't apologize for thinking of environmentally friendlier ways to repurpose items. When it can be avoided anyway.

It was a faux wood finish as mentioned in the video. The chairs were wood but much too detailed to be worth sanding by hand to refinish. Enamel paint is best when sprayed. A few cans of spray paint is worth not cutting down more trees to make a whole new dining set when this one can be remade with a very durable enamel finish that will last many more years than any other type of paint.

I have learned so much from your flips and rebuilds! Sometimes when I watch these super fast-motion compilations, I think, “Man! She made that in no time! I could totally go do that same thing between dinner and bedtime!” Reality bites me every time! In this one, I especially loved the white/grey-distressed side table and the risers made with spindles. I’m gonna go see if I can throw those together real quick...oh yeah...no fast-motion in real life. And I’m a mom of four (all boys, age 9-19!). God bless your next season!

I have to say that I really love and appreciate how you make sure your pieces are painted and covered underneath as well as outside.

If there are scratches then you will need to fill them in with wood filler. Crysdawna is the queen of a smooth finish. Please check out her channel. She uses dixie belle products which are VERY smoothe and she can show you how to get that smooth finish using a brush

@Desert DIY I greatly appreciate your response. I had lots of anxiety before as to what I could do with it..my deceased cat stratched all along the bottom edge as it meets the base trim. The dresser has lots of memories from my cats and I hate to get rid of it... Just one more question ..hate to bug u but what type of primer and paint ..I want to get it creamy smooth looking. Is there a specific paint for dressers? Thanks for all yr help your an angel...

If your dresser is in good condition: Sand it with 220 to get out any imperfections and prep for paint. Then follow up with 0000 steel wool for an extra smooth finish. Spray on a primer that works for the color paint you are going to use. Run the 0000 steel wool over the entire piece again and wipe away any dust afterwards with a microfiber cloth. Spray on your paint and use the steel wool and microfiber cloth in between coats for a perfectly smooth finish. Finish off with a clear coat in the sheen you like best

The egg shell blue unit was a lovely makeover. However, I feel that the 'shabby-ing' up of paintwork is a stage that could slowly be left behind. I looked really a whole lot fresher and more interesting before the dark wax was added, in my opinion However, you are clearly really good at what you do, so I shall bow to your experience.

You should use a spackle knife to spread the wood filler and force it into the gouges or cracks.

Why don't you just spray paint with a gloss paint rather than take an extra step with the enamel?

Gloss paint isn't enamel. Although it is the most durable sheen of paint, it still isn't as durable as enamel.
