FURNITURE REPURPOSING - behind the scenes






While I'm under the weather and resting I thought
I would share some behind the scenes photos from
a past project that just might get you kick started on
your own repurposing projects or at least get you
thinking ....









We all know the magic of paint but it really is important when you are building furniture
 with salvaged wood. On the left are photos of a newly constructed
shelf and on the right for comparison is the same shelf after it has been painted.





 




 











THAT'S THE POWER OF PAINT!

  1. What a delightful find today. I have actually purchased a repurposed bookshelf in a fine furniture store in Olympia Wa very similar to this with shutters for the sides and lots of molding beautiful molding and beadboard for the back wall of unit. There is an upper and lower section having cast iron corbels and on the bottom they used "split in half" lathed swindled chair legs as a molding element on each side. Something unique at the top of mine are 5 round bannister type of balls
    about 3-1/2 or 4 inches in diameter that makes it look so regal. Just like a crown.

    I spent months paying down on it because it is a one of a kind.

    YOU HAVE GIVEN ME AN INSPIRATIONAL BLESSING TO FIND MY OWN BOOKCASE AND TRY THIS ON MY OWN AS I HAVE TWO EXAMPLES SIMILAR BUT QUITE DIFFERENT.

    YOU ARE WONDERFUL!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE INSPIRATIONAL PIECES. HERE I COME GOODWILL!!!
