And..here’s the back of the Island before paint and the addition of bead board.
Maybe you remember this lamp, that I almost totally ruined.
By adding too much glaze..
And turning it into this very ugly orangish color. So ugly I had to take a break for several months and regroup before tackling it again.
Eventually I did revamped the lamp and I am now loving it again!
I know you also remember this crazy deal. $3.00 at a yard sale scored me this very smoky smelling washstand. Whew! It was bad, and scuffed up too.
But I persevered and my hard work paid off greatly and this still sits on my front porch welcoming our guests, without the smell I might add.
My very old kitchen chairs received another update as well.
I showed you how they have seen many coats of paint in their lifetime with us.
Then added one more layer of beauty to them by painting them black.
This small spare room upstairs that was used by my sons was converted to a craft and sewing room for me.
I even created my own paint color by mixing Ooops paints that I had on hand.
I mixed until I got the color I wanted.
And I this is how it turned out. Then I started moving my furniture pieces in.
I took over an old bookshelf from one of my sons.
And painted it to fit the style of my room.
I also redid this old desk that we’ve had forever.
I even replaced all the wooden knobs with brass ones I already had on hand after spray painting them with ORB. I love it!
And finally after seeing all of you wonderful crafter’s out there making things, I made my very own tassel using things I already had on hand.
Isn’t he just so cute?
Well, that’s enough for now, Whew, what a year! I have been a very busy gal!
