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.

A beautiful table before and after

When this table was posted on a local Facebook group site I couldn't resist.  It has so many unique qualities.

Footboard + coffee table = bench

What do you get when you combine a foot board and coffee table?  A bench of course.  I had a request to create a headboard for someone...a couple of months ago.  She wanted a bench with a full back, no spindles.  What usually happens when you get a specific request like that? You can't find it!  That's what happened to me.  I could not find a headboard and foot board that were full without the spindles.  I decided to improvise.

Revival of an outdoor bench- with chalk paint!

This bench was brought to me to make it look like wood again.  It is not a wood bench so it wasn't "Oh, I'll just smear some deck stain on it and it will be good" type of project.  It was a type of plastic or resin.
