Weekend fun---post 1 of 2!!

Alrightyyy remember my pile of crap that I picked up from the Bargain Barn in Erie PA???? Well I had some time to work on my crap I mean treasures and I have to say I am pretty excited about the results...and really for a first experience re-finishing I have to say it was EASY and super satisfying to see the results!  Now I am obsessivly looking around for new things to work on, this new discovery might really change what I will bring home from garage sales next summer!!


Sanded, stained and a coat of poly later I think this old school desk is looking GREAT!!!  ***note to self-might not be a good thing to do inside....I think inhaled more than my fair share of fumes!


Project #2


Sand and paint


Add a nail and there you go-wreath hanger thing... (I think this might look cool against a different color wall... buttt I HAVE to have this wreath above my bed because I love it SO much--Cal's mom made it for us out of our wedding flowers!)

Note cool wall hanging AND desk night stand!


Annddd a more realistic picture of the nightstand with all of my junk on it! 


I really wasn't sure what the real color of this frame was to begin with thats how dirty it was!


WoW look at that shine!


add white paint



*I did go back after painting the frame and distressed a bit with sand paper because I wasn't really going for the perfect look*


And finally there is nothing like recycling junk laying around the house not being used-I started out with an Ikea frame:


Sanded and painted white


Sand and then spray paint the glass=chalkboard!
