Vanity with Mirror

Found this vanity on craigslist around Christmas time.  Bought it with the sole intention of fixing it up to go in my bedroom.  You'll have to excuse the less than perfect pictures for the "after"....hard to get a good pic in the room.  Will work on that for you though!

Vintage Dressing Table

I picked up this dressing table a while back. I had never seen anything like it with the arms that swing out, but my mother educated me on how they used them back in the day and hung fabric/curtains on them. This table was sorely neglected, but with a little TLC I think it is now one of my favorite pieces!

Off the wooden path......

This was a fun one.  Took a real stoplight (ugly green and all) and fixed it up more suitable for the man den.

Hope Chest & Roll Top

Found this hope chest on Craigslist .....  

Was driving through town one day and stopped at a yard sale we drove past. This desk was there buried under stuff.....  Solid wood with gorgeous grains.

Fun Junk Shop Find

This was an easy but fun one to do. Found this desk at a little place outside of town we call "the junk shop"...he seriously has so much stuff (and tons of it junk). One day I'll snap a pic of the place. Anyway, found this desk there..........

Three hours and $20 of material later, this is what we ended up with. Which sold yesterday and it's something I love to do!

My favorite piece so far....

I tracked this piece down in Eugene. It was actually more than I wanted to spend but there was just something about it that I needed to have. This is the very frightening before.....

After many hours of peeling and scraping the 6 layers of paint off, a bit of sanding and some stain, (not to mention some nice new handles) this is now the finished product. No wonder I wanted to buy it!!
