Projects, Projects, Projects

I have a garage full of furniture! I sold my first two pieces pretty quick after listing them. In doing so I met the nicest lady who wants even more finished pieces from me. I keep waiting for her to change her mind and come to her senses....

These are some pieces she is getting

A nightstand that I picked up at Goodwill.

This is a dresser I found on Craigslist.
My "client" (I usually just call her by her name) is looking for a changing table and this
piece is in the running.

It has great bones but needs a little help (i.e, wood glue, clamps and nails).

Awesome contact paper!
(it was in all of the drawers...sigh)

There are key holes and lock but no keys.

This piece is also in the running for a changing table.
I got this piece on an excursion into the city one day with my husband.
We were in the worst part of the city but I met a man
who goes to estate sales and gets great deals on furniture.

We exchanged our contact info and I am hoping he becomes my
drug, er, furniture dealer.
My husband jokes that finding furniture is my drug.

It came with a mirror too (no pic though).

And it needs new hardware too. This one broke in transit.

I love this dresser. I wanted to use in it our basement bathroom as a vanity
but since the bathroom is non existent I decided to pay this one forward and turn it into
a changing table/dresser.

There will be others, I just know it!

I need to get my butt in gear and start working on these.
The night stand should just needs hardware and a coat of poly
and I will have AFTER pictures up soon.


  1. Beautiful job! And a beautiful color you chose. I love to do the same thing, it is so rewarding to find junk and turn it into treasure. Would love to have you at My newbie linky party going on now. Normally it is on Monday but I started early today due to other commitments coming up.

  2. Debbie,

    Thank you so much for looking and I would love to be featured. I should be posting some more before and afters soon. I haven't had a chance to look around your blog yet but I will tonight! Thank you again!!!
