Guest Bedroom Makeover-One Room Challenge-Week Four

Welcome to week four of the One Room Challenge.  If you need to catch up you can visit 12 & 3.  I'm excited today because I purchased the floors for our guest bedroom, but before we get to install them we need to make the room ready by installing all of the trim work.

How to remove wood veneer from wood furniture

Hi friends, the weather has been gorgeous here in New York and that means I get to work outside on a furniture project!  Did you know that under peeling and cracking veneer there is good wood? Veneer lifts and cracks from moisture and can be removed completely with a wet towel and a metal putty knife. A few years back I picked up an antique night table on the side of the road. (You can read the posts here Shabby Roadside Find and Shabby Table & Petunias)  There was some peeling and cracking of the veneer on the top and bottom, but the overall piece is solid wood and has gorgeous carvings in the legs.  I thought maybe I could give this piece some love with a quick sanding, but the damage was worse than I thought, so the veneer needed to come off.

guest bedroom makeover-One Room challenge-week two

We are in week two of the ORC  (catch up on week 1 here) and things are moving along.  Today is prep day, the dreaded part of any makeover.  If I had a magic wand I would totally skip this part and go right to the fun part of decorating!  I have to remind myself that to get to the pretty you have to fix the ugly, so I better get started with this makeover, because week 6 will be here before I know it.
