DIY:Changing table/Masa de infasat

[En]As you might have noticed by now, I'd rather paint and re-purpose old furniture than buy new one and that's what I did for our changing table ๐Ÿ˜€

[Ro]Asa cum probabil ati remarcat pana acum, mai degraba vopsesc si refolosesc o piesa mobilier veche decat sa cumpar una noua si asta am facut si in ceea ce priveste masuta de infasat pentru bebe ๐Ÿ˜€

[En]In the old set of furniture from the living room we had (actually my parents in law had) a TV stand which we haven't used for quite some years now. It was just sitting there full of items bought from the flea market. My husband wanted to throw it away but I insisted I want to try to make it useful.

[Ro]In setul de mobila veche din sufragerie aveam (de fapt socrii mei aveau) un corp de mobila ce se folosea ca suport pentru televizor dar noi nu l-am folosit decat sa tinem in el o parte din lucrurile vechi pe care le tot cumparam eu de la pietele de vechituri. Sotul meu a vrut sa il arunce, dar am insistat ca vreau sa incerc sa ii dam un scop.

[En]I've asked him to cut the upper half ย and fix the legs (they were a little shaky).

[Ro]L-am rugat sa taie partea de deasupra si sa repare picioarele care erau putin subrede.

[En]I've painted it all white and the legs blue, more exactly Greek Blue from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

[Ro]Am vopsit comoda toata in alb si picioarele in albastru, mai exact nuanta Greek Blue de la Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

[En]After the paint has dried, I've added some nautical elements on the piece (nautical nursery, remember? ๐Ÿ˜€ ). I've decided I want a sailor rope motif on the drawer, anchor on one door and a boat and little whale on the other door. To do this, I've taken some images from the Internet and printed them on regular paper. Then, I went back and forth with a pencil on the back of the paper until it turned all grey. After that I've taped the paper on the doors and drawers with theย design facing up and traced the contour. This way, I had a fine line on the paint and I could easily follow it. I hope you can see in the image the fine line of pencil.

[Ro]Dupa ce s-a uscat vopseaua, am adaugat si niste elemente marine pe mobilier (camera cu tematica marina, cum v-am mai povestit si aici ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Am decis ca vreau un model cu franghie marinareasca ย pe sertar, o ancora pe o usa iar pe cealalta usa o barcuta si o balena mica. Am luat niste imagini de pe Internet si le-am printat pe hartie normala. Apoi am dat cu mina de creion pe spatele hartiei pana am facut-o toata gri (asa cum copiam modele cand eram mai mici) si am lipit hartia cu modelul in sus pe mobilier. Am trasat conturul formelor apasand,ย si datorita minei de creion aplicata anterior pe spatele hartiei mi-a ramas o linie fina pe vopseaua alba si am putut sa vopsesc in interiorul ei usor, cu o pensula subtire. Sper ca se vede cat de cat cum arata conturul ramas pe vopsea.

[En]For the knobs, I wanted to buy some nice ones but I din't find any in our country, every store has the same 5-6 models, none of which were appropriate for my design. So I did what I usually do: paint the old ones and add my own design, using decoupage ๐Ÿ˜€

[Ro]In ceea ce priveste manerele, am vrut sa cumpar unele noi dar nu am gasit sa imi placa la noi in tara, fiecare magazin avand aceleasi 5-6 modele, care chiar nu se potriveau cu designul meu. Asa ca am facut ce fac de obicei: le-am vopsit pe cele vechi si le-am decorat dupa gustul meu, prin tehnica decoupage ๐Ÿ˜€

[En]I am super happy with how my changing table turned out. I don't have a picture with the changing mat on it or with baby oils and diapers because right now it is super messy, but I promise in the future I will show you how it looks like with everything at its place ๐Ÿ™‚

[Ro]Sunt super incantata de cum a iesit, dar nu am o poza in care sa se vada cum arata cu salteluta de infasat pe ea, cu uleiurile de bebelusi si scutece pentru ca e super mare dezordine pe ea acum. Promit sa va arat in viitor cand vor fi toate puse la locul lor ๐Ÿ™‚
