More projects 10/6/14

By |December 17th, 2014|

This big old beauty had a lot of character but the large drawers seemed out of place.

Antique Buffet – Before
I don’t think the drawers were original to the piece, so I replaced them with doors which seemed more appropriate for a buffet. After some repairs and reinforcement it was time to paint. I started with […]

Upcyled and Stenciled Tables 1/22/14

By |January 22nd, 2014|

I started the new year with some new stencils and couldn’t wait to try them. I had this coffee table and side table that was perfect for the African Plumes Furniture Stencil by Royal Design Studio.

After a light sanding and some bright white paint it was time for the fun to begin. […]

Repurposed Side Table 11/6/2013

By |November 6th, 2013|

This piece was obviously a repurposing project. I’m not sure what it started out as or even what it is, but my vision was to repurpose it into a kitchen island.

I had this great old enamel kitchen countertop that I wanted to use, but it wasn’t the right size.

To make it fit, I […]

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, […]

Upcycled Rocking Chair 8/07/13

By |August 7th, 2013|

These projects were all about re-sizing. The old rocker obviously belonged to a very short granny because it sat very low. But the matching table stood too high.

I started the re-sizing with the chair. After removing the seat I added 1 x 3’s to the frame. This brought […]

Upcycled Furniture 7/10/13

By |July 11th, 2013|

Ok, a few more pieces of upcycled furniture. The first was an easy one. This large old cabinet was loaded with character and charm. All that was necessary was a few minor repairs, a good cleaning and raised up with legs.

Next was this beautiful old dresser that was looking a bit tired […]

Upcycled Furniture 3/27/13

By |March 27th, 2013|

I kept my projects small but fun this week. I started with this tongue and groove cedar trunk. It is a great size but was oh so boring.

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