WATERFALL VANITY TURNED BEDSIDES - inspiration





This is a peak at one of two beautiful nightstands I
salvaged once a mid-century waterfall vanity was ripped
into two. If you have thought about trying this yourself I'm
here to let you know you can do it but it takes a bit of work
and you need some patience to figure out how the vanity was
originally built.

RE- PURPOSING DINING CHAIR LEGS - nightstand inspiration

 
 
I use all sorts of legs when I'm building and redesigning
furniture but did you realize sometimes I even repurpose
legs from dining chairs. I like adding short legs to nightstands
and other pieces of furniture usually because they only need
a small lift, but when I want to lift something much higher I
look to the legs on dining chairs. Not all dining chairs have
reusable legs but those that can be used look great
when reworked into my style of furniture.

LOUVERED DOORS, SEA URCHINS, & ROPE HANDLES

AFTER
 
 
 
This AFTER picture is a project I recently undertook
for added privacy while covering a window and it's my
current view when watching TV. I also used a pair of
lighted wall sconces to replace some of the lost light
from the window.
