A great shelving unit made from a gun safe

As the garage sales came to an end this season, I ran across 1 more and found this gun safe.

Painting a chair...

I've painted a few upholstery pieces.  Most people have heard of this by now. 
 I've used the small bottles of acrylic paints with fabric medium, on an old couch.
I used chalk paint on another piece I didn't post about.
This time I used latex and fabric medium.

A faux corbel

At one estate sale this past summer I ran into a lot of interesting wood pieces.  There were legs, trims, and molding, but the most interesting of all was this piece here.

2 pinterest inspired projects

I like the inspiration pinterest gives me.  I pin things to try all the time.  I don't always get to those pins, but as it gets colder outside, I am going to do my best to get something from one of my boards done each month.
Here are 2 things I finished this week, inspired by pinterest.

An old secretary gets a new look

At one of the last estate sales I went to, I found this secretary desk.  At first I looked at it, but walked away.  I came back for it a few minutes later.  It needed some work.  The drawer was in pieces, the top didn't close, and it had this vinyl adhesive inside that needed to be gone.
