Chalk Painted Table With Gold Feet

This side table was badly scratched and abused when I got it.  It must have spent some time in a teenager’s room because it had their latest crush etched into one of the legs…  “I <3 …”   I get so sad when I see beautiful furniture neglected so badly! I spent a good amount […] Read more…

Midcentury Buffet Gets a Classy Makeover

I bought this vintage buffet with folding sides this spring at a yard sale…  I almost passed it up but I’m glad I didn’t!  It’s a very solid (heavy) piece and well made.  However it had the typical scratches, a few dings, and filthy handles that you would expect of an old piece that had […] Read more…

Blackened Mirror

My garage is currently filled with several partially completed “big” furniture projects.  Big = many of them have broken or damaged parts and need extra time and TLC to make them functional and pretty again.  I work on them a little each day but sometimes I’ll take a break and try to get a quick […] Read more…
