SEAWORTHY FINALLY - wine crate handpainted side table


I've found the time to get the wine crate table completely finished and ready to go.


Inside the table is stamped with October 1969, so it's officially older then I am.


It was sanded first, 4 coats of primer applied, then 3 coats of paint finished the body off.


The process of getting the labelled painted and protected on the surface can be found here.


I painted the original hardware in flat black.

I COPIED THE BELLORA CHANDELIER - pottery barn chandelier makeover

I have a small obsession with the Bellora Chandelier at Pottery Barn



So I made my own.



Here's the before.



Supplies and Tools included:


I painted the whole chandelier brown, then over sprayed it with
the black till it was the color I wanted.



I used the dremel to drill holes in the metal of the chandelier
so I could screw the eye hooks into.


I made my own hangers for my acrylic balls.





I just may look for some smooth glass ornament balls at Christmas
time to replace these acrylic prisms I used.



I LIKE IT!!

FRENCH WINE TEASER - project this week




George spotted this wine crate at a yard sale and suggested I use the graphics on my next project.







I bought this charming fluted leg table with 2 drawers at a fundraiser a few weeks ago.


Remember the title of this post did say *TEASER*
STAY TUNED !!!

HIDDY HO NEIGHBOR - games tables

This wonderful pair of tables were bought from the neighbor's barn sale.
One bottom self was broke but quickly repaired with new dowels and glue.


I loved the detail on the top and wanted to emphasize it with the new look.



Being able to put them together to make one round table or separately against the wall,
they are very handy just about anywhere you want to use them.



 There were stained with a dark walnut and painted in a creamy white before distressing and waxing.


I really enjoyed this project
because I was able to take each table completely
apart to work on.


I think they would be great bedside tables for a spare room.
