Før og etter - stripete sjenk! / Before and after - Striped Credenza!

Sjenken så ut som dette da vi begynte. Den er fra 30-tallet, og er dekket av finér (altså ikke heltre). Før vi begynte med grunningen måtte den vaskes, pusses og vaskes igjen. Prisen var hele 300 kr på finn.no.

The credenza looked like this when we started working on it. It's from the 30s and has a faux oak veneer finish. It had to  be washed, sanded and washed again before we applied primer. The price tag was about USD 40.



Her har jeg påført grunningen. Etter den kom tre lag til med hvitmaling (05000-hvit).

In this picture I've applied primer. After the primer I added three additional layers of 05000 white paint.



Den verste delen av jobben var tapingen. Jeg holdt virkelig på å ta en laang pause (og hadde lyst til å kaste sjenken på dynga i samme slengen) da jeg var ferdig med under en tredjedel, men da kom lærlingen Mari som en reddende engel og fikset resten. Hun gjorde en fantastisk jobb!

The worst part of the makeover was the taping. When I'd finished under a third, I was furious and felt like I was about to implode. I litterally felt like throwing the credenza out the window (which would have been physically impossible). My intern Mari came and finished of the taping in a few hours and saved my day (my whole week actually!). She did an amazing job!



VOILA! Sjenken er ferdig! (nesten). Jeg har tenkt til å skifte ut alle metalldelene med deler i sølv i stedet for sort.

VOILA! Credenza finished! (almost). I'm planning on changing the hardware to silver, but we'll see if I ever get it done.

Jeg har ikke stylet den enda, venter på noen viktige deler som er på vei, og andre som ikke er det. Det skal være et sunburst speil på veggen (ikke på vei), noen bilder (har), et fat på sjenken i milk glass (på vei), min lille blå og hvitmønstrede vase (har), bøker (har), en litt større vase (har, tror jeg) og friske ferskenblomster (har ikke, har i kveld :)).

I haven't styled it yet, I'm waiting on some important pieces (some on the way and some not). I'm wanting a sunburst mirror (definitly not on the way) and some pictures on the wall (have those), a pedestal dish in milk glass (on the way), the little blue and white vase (have that), books (have those), a little larger vase (I think I have it), and some freshly cut peach tree stems (will have those this evening or tomorrow).
 


Her ser du sjenken som en del av interiøret. Ser du Ugly Doll'en?

As a part of the interior. Can you spot the Ugly Doll?

Og å gjøre dette én gang var selvfølgelig ikke nok for meg... Én til står på listen! Jeg håper jeg har funnet sjenken som står for tur nå...

And doing this once wasn't enough for me... Another one is on the list! I'm hoping I've found the right credenza, I'm hoping it will be mine in a few days...

Catherine - It would, wouldn't it? Too bad that corals, like sunburst mirrors aren't being sold here.

MWW - Jeg er overbegeistret, elsker den! Den var virkelig verdt alt det tidkrevende arbeidet :)

Linda - Thank you so much for saying that! I love it too! :D

Nina - Tusen takk! Og trenger virkelig lykke neste omgang, det er en tålmodighetsprøve! Hehe

It's amazing!!!!! just so beautiful. really inspiring... maybe i should do something more like this to my file cabs since I can't afford the paper I want???

xoxo

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

Lauren - thank you!!! That sounds like a great idea, it is actually a super fun process even though I get a little out of my comfort zone with the whole taping thing. I'm definitly doing it again, and would love to see what you come up with!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Ok you must plan a trip to NY and come help me with all of my DIY projects. You are amazing at it!!!

All of my projects are still on my to-do list. You inspired me to get my act together!

I think it looks amazing and I can't wait to see it styled.

Great job for you and Mari

Christine Kjøs said...

Veldig nice Dagny. Jeg simpelhen elsker tapetet ditt også :o)

Hege said...

Imponerende hva du klarer! Har nesten blitt avhengig av bloggen din, innom både titt og ofte. :) Denne her var utrolig fin! Gleder meg til å se den ferdig stylet! :)

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

MNH - Thank you! And you're absolutely right! There's always toys everywhere, I forgot to remove that one... :)

Camila - Haha, there's nothing I'd love more than that! Going back to NY is definitly high on my list right now. And Mr B has never even been there, so we're definitly wanting to go in near future! Wouldn't it be fabulous to go fleamarketing together??

Amanda - thank you :)

Christine - Så moro at du tittet innom!! Tusen takk skal du ha, er veldig fornøyd jeg også! Og tapeten er en drøm, blir bare mer og mer fornøyd med den. :) Men vi må få opp noen bilder!! Nå er det forresten på tide at vi finner på noe snart!

Hege - Hehe, så utrolig koselig å høre! Jeg er nok blitt litt avhengig av den selv, fniis... Håper å ha den ferdig stylet om et par uker!

CHÂTEAU DE KONSTANSE said...

Så utrolig fin den ble!
Kan tenke meg det var pirk med all tapingen, men det var det jammen verdt når en ser resultatet:-)
En super original og frech sjenk!

Ser fram til å kunne begynne å male møbler selv*s*

Ha en flott helg!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am visiting via H.O.H. Great post!

I hope you'll stop by for a visit, I am hosting a giveaway.

DesignTies said...

Taping off all those stripes took a LOT of patience. I don't blame you for wanting to chuck the whole thing out the window!! But the striped credenza looks great -- good thing Mari was there to help you out!!
