Okay, here we go again, more furniture in desperate need of being upcycled. These pieces were all in good condition just boring, tired and outdated.

I started with this pretty lady with fabulous legs. She was screaming for a youthful and updated look.

I achieved it by painting her dark blue and white on the top with a pretty scroll stencil. I kept the beautiful hardware but painted it bright white. The chair was just an extra I found in my shed that I painted and upholstered to match.

Next was this portable kitchen island, very well built but very dated.

After sanding and stripping it I painted it grey and used a dark stain on the oak top. To add some spunk I used hardware from the plumbing department and a stencil with a bright red bird.

The last project was this great revolving bookcase.

A fun piece but the color…a little blah, so I spiced it up with this burnt orange color and stenciled a star to the top.

Many more upcycling projects to come, got to get this excess out of my shed with yard sale season here.
