Ugly duckling to beautiful swan

So many of us pass by these tables.  They are outdated and chunky.  Let's look at it in another light.  Here is how I took this table from ugly duckling to beautiful swan.
Maybe this would be fun in some bright colors, but that's really not me.  This is the table in its original state.

I removed the top, flipped it over and added some nice curvy legs.  It's a simple process that can be found here.  I used insert nuts and hanger bolts.

Here is the table after adding the legs.  I looked around to find a top.  After the top was added, I painted it.

Beautiful creamy white!

Creating a chaise- 2 chairs combined

Many of you that have been to my blog before know I like to create different things.  Building is one of my favorite things to do.  This project is one of those!  I saw the inspiration on Pinterest here.

Making a hall tree with a bench seat

I got a set of doors for free!  That's the  best price, wouldn't you agree?  I was at a garage sale and leaning up next to there garage were 2 doors in a pile of scraps and metal.  I asked if they were throwing the doors away, and they said "yes"!  I asked if I could have them, and they came home with me.  This is one of those doors.

Catching up

I've been a little MIA and I have to admit, it's been wonderful!  Don't worry, the projects are still getting done, but I took a little vacation and some how after that it didn't seem all that important to worry about what I would post about.  Today I am just gong to share some miscellaneous projects to get me back into the swing of things.

Door hall tree and a bonus!

I recently came across 3 old doors...for FREE!  Talk about exciting!  I love to work with old things and make something different.  This makeover is not something new.  People have been using old doors as hall trees for a while now.  Hopefully you will still enjoy this version.

Painting an antique couch

I was given the opportunity to buy this couch and chair set.  I jumped on it!  Wouldn't you?  I knew someone who wanted it and this transformation is her vision.

To blog or not to blog...

That is a question I have  been asking myself lately.  The projects will go on, of course.  That is a part of me and I enjoy it so much.  I also enjoy sharing them with others, but I am finding I can do that on Facebook as well.
