Life has been busy lately. Like, "whoops I planned way too much for myself in a short period of time", kinda busy. Hence, the scattered and not-so-many-as-usual blog posts. We have some friends preparing to move away soon, and as they've been cleaning out their house, we've been the lucky recipients of some of their awesome stuff ;) We've been working on re-doing these items into beautiful new pieces.
Above is a table and chair set. They were sanded, primed, given 2 coats of red, and then 2 coats of polyurethane. I LOVE them. The red brightens my backyard!
This bench is almost finished (still needs the poly). It was sanded, primed, and then I finished off the quart of that $2 Oops paint I scored from Home Depot a little while ago. I honestly have no idea where this bench will end up, but I think it's just the cutest thing! For now, it's resting under the chalkboard doors I did a couple weeks ago in my kitchen. I eventually would like to build a narrow storage table for against this wall.
At this point, every furniture piece/decoration/art in out kitchen/dining area is handmade (or old but redone by us). My style tastes have changed SO much since I got married 9 years ago (I used to hate handmade things like these).
What have you been updating or building lately?
