Repurposing "treasures' is not only fun but it somehow feeds my soul. I really enjoy the process of figuring out what the finished product should look like.
The table below was actually at a curb side waiting for garbage pickup - yikes. It now graces my bedroom.
I found the lamp at a garage sale (I forgot to take a 'before' photo). It is a substantial lamp - meaning it is sooooo heavy; it WAS a very brassy brass color. I painted it with the amazing Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (ASCP) which means - no primer/no nothing - just load the paint brush with paint and then paint (and maybe a little distressing). This beauty is at Bloom http://www.facebook.com/BloomBC .
I found this little chair at a furniture auction - it needed some care. You will notice in the 'after' photos there are only three rungs - the bottom one was cracked and broken. I removed it, filled the holes with wood putty, sanded, and then painted. It's also at Bloom http://www.facebook.com/BloomBC
