Use O’verlays to Update Your Furniture

Are you familiar with O’verlays?

They.  Are.  Awesome.

Do you have a tired old piece of furniture that could use a new life?  Let O'verlays transform your piece into something fabulous!

Like, for real.

I first discovered O’verlays several years ago.  I’ve been hooked ever since.

O’verlays are lightweight, glueable panels that can completely change the way a piece of furniture looks.

They work on wood, metal, mirror, glass – you name it!

They are revolutionary!

I used them to transform a hutch that resides in my studio.

This piece used to be a built-in in my Mom’s dining room.

I show up at her house one day about 15 years ago and this 13′ long thing is at the street.  She put it there for the City to haul off.

Yes this is a true story.

I know, I was appalled too.

Needless to say, I grabbed it before anyone else could figure out how to haul the beast.

Does she not know me at all?

I pick stuff up on the side of the road all the time and she is giving away this killer piece to the first person that can figure out how to haul it???

What the heck?  What.  The.  Heck.

Anyway, back to the point of how awesome the piece looks with the O’verlays…

I mean, really.

This piece has been about 20 different colors over the years.  For now she is on a deep  navy blue wall and is painted with Velvet Finishes Glamorous.

The hardware is the original hardware and I spray painted it the same gold as I did the O’verlay.

I’m not going to lie, I do not remember what spray paint I used.

Spray painting the O’verlays is super easy.  Lay them on a tarp and spray.  Done.

I used the Anne pattern and I think it gives it just enough glam!

 O’verlays work fantastic with Glue Dots for many applications. Glue Dots come on a roll of wax paper and are pliable.  They have a lot of uses!  You can also use a liquid glue to apply your O’verlay.

We used a product that is a narrow double-sided tape, typically used in the auto body industry.

O’verlays and Velvet Finishes gave this tired old piece new life and I absolutely love it!
