Cabinets, Cabinets, Cabinets – January 2015

By |January 21st, 2015|

Time to gather up some parts and pieces and make something funky. The collection consisted of two old kitchen drawers, one old cabinet, small Ikea drawers (yard sale finds), trim from the junk pile, hardware and chicken wire.The obvious start was to remove that lovely floral contact paper from the small cabinet, with the help […]

Upcycled Furniture From Cute to Classy 10/30/2013

By |October 30th, 2013|

I loved the great lines and details of this old table but it was showing its age and the legs were a little shaky. After taking care of the structural issues, it was standing sturdy once again.

Now time to pretty it up. The wood on the table top, although very nice, […]

Repurposed Phonograph 8/28/13

By |August 28th, 2013|

This beautiful old Victorian phonograph had been used and abused. The veneer on the top was beyond repair, and two of the legs had been shaved off on the bottom sides. I was left with no choice but to cut them down, it was very painful for me.

To liven it up I painted it chartreuse on the outside and raspberry on the inside. Then added the wow factor with these […]

By |August 7th, 2012|

This was a small wicker table that I picked up at a yard sale. I really liked the style and the lines, I just thought the color was outdated. It didn’t need much, just a modern color. Because it was metal and wicker, I decided to use a spray paint in a […]

Repurposed Antique Dresser into Benches

By |August 3rd, 2012|

I had this old, dirty antique dresser that I could have sanded, painted, and changed the hardware and it would have been very nice. However, why do the expected — lets make three benches out of it instead.

Here it is, cut in half. The large bottom drawer with the legs became one bench, and the […]

Vintage French Provincial Dining Table and Chairs

By |July 26th, 2012|

This set is a Vintage dining table and chairs in the French Provincial style. It was given to me by family friends because it needed to be repaired and refinished.

This table is sooo pretty but definitely needs a face lift.  I spent the day sanding and sanding.  OMG, six chairs with lots of […]
