Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic also teamed up with the lovely Ana White to add storage behind her sofa with a PB-inspired console table. Whitney’s new console has the look of an old work bench with a thick, sturdy frame, casters, and distressed finish. Here’s what Whitney has to say about her build: “I love the storage it gives me as well as it’s open feel in the space. Oh… And did I mention $80 to build? Love it even more!”

Kristy of Kristy Dickerson had been on the hunt for the perfect shelves to hang above the file cabinets in her office. She finally found some at Restoration Hardware she liked, but just adding two shelves and the brackets to her cart drove the total to $800! Yikes! With a trip to Home Depot, Kristy had all the materials she needed to recreate the reclaimed wood and metal shelves. She did an amazing job distressing the boards to give them that old, worn look.

Kat from Basil and Chaise shares the steps to achieving that shabby chic look yourself without spending big bucks. Kat was fortunate to find a set of solid wood ladder back chairs on the side of the road that were tired and in need of a makeover. She decided to give one of her new chairs a heavily distressed look with white paint, a paint scraper, and sandpaper. Fresh fabric finished off the chair and gave it a second chance to shine!

Aimee from The Vintage Estate was more than willing to help out a family friend who was moving out of her farmhouse and needed to unload a few items. One of Aimee’s acquisitions was a cedar chest that had seen better days. Despite the ugly exterior, the inside was still in great condition. It only took some homemade chalk paint to transform the chest into a bench like one Aimee had been admiring from Pottery Barn.

Glazed Candle Holders

Larissa from The House on Harrison wanted some candlesticks for her master bath and found beautiful gold and white candle holders from Pottery Barn that were perfect for the space. Not surprisingly, the price was crazy, which propelled Larissa to refab some candlesticks of her own with spray paint and glaze. I think it’s amazing how Larissa’s use of glaze adds such depth and actually gives the appearance of carved stone.
