I thought I would share a few projects I finished. Here is a chair I saved for $5. A cat scratched up the front, and the woodwork on the back was broken.
Now this little chair is in my closet to help me put my shoes on.
I moved the curtains from my formal living room to my dining room. I saw these in my neighbor, Mary's house. Her house is sooooo beautiful! (And she is one of the nicest people I know!) I am such a bad neighbor for copying.
I painted an old serving tray with chalkboard paint. I love the stuff so much, I'm resisting the urge to turn everything into a chalkboard.
Here is an old, plastic mirror I painted. I forgot to take before pictures, but it was cheap, flaking off gold paint, had a crack, and the plastic frame showed. I just filled in the crack and white-washed it a little. Now it's in my hallway.
I needed a buffet table for my formal dining room, but there really isn't enough room for a big piece of furniture at the end of my table. So I thought this little table would handle overflow and storage quite nicely. Tell me what you think ... is it too short, or does it work? The little door slides back and forth. I would like to put chicken wire over it in place of the current metal. Is it hard to find chicken wire?
