mix and match transformation

This is a fun thing to do.  All these pieces were purchased separately.  
Simply by painting them in a similar color and finish they look like they were meant to be together!

First, another ugly duckling we found on Craigslist....a pedistal table.  
We had to drive a bit to pick her up but she was worth it.
Next was a hutch I found at a yard sale.  She was a steal.  She had a couple of broken knobs, but she painted up beautifully.

Then they were the chairs.  These were all found at separate garage sales.  
They were loner chairs that had no matching partners.  
They are all similar in look, so when painted they look like a matching set.  
Only if you look closely can you tell they just met!

.....put them all together and you have a completed kitchen that looks like it was made to go together!


  1. I also pick up similar table on Craigslist for $50. Sanded top, working on bottom. What color did you paint yours, I like it. I wanted a creamy white with a distressed finished. Also staining the top.

  2. Wow! You did a fabulous job making all of these over! It all looks wonderful!!

    Have a delightful week!

  3. Gosh Linda, you are really moving on painting furniture! Those pieces look fantastic! ~Hugs, Patti

  4. I LOVE those chairs!! I have been looking for some just like that...
