Refinished Furniture and Other Items

My husband painted an old exersaucer into a Coast Guard C-130 airplane.

Refinishing furniture/items is the thing that Jason and I enjoy doing. Me more than Jason, but he is awesome at it. It saves money as well as making the furniture your own. 🙂 If you would be interested in the hubby and I doing some work for you, let me know through the comments or email. Thank you!

After, Wall of Pictures. No new Frames, just old ones from around the house, painted.

The latest project – painting our worn out end tables. I did buy new knobs, but when I took this picture, I had not put it on there.

This is the dresser I scored on craigslist for FREE.

We cut off the legs and I painted it, aged it some. I painted the originals knob, and replaced the handles because one of the original ones were broken. I painted the new handles to match the painted knobs.

Original drawer knobs.

Old handles, which would have been really pretty re-painted. So I kept the ones that weren’t broken.

The dresser finished. I painted the knobs and handles with metal spray paint, it is a charcoal color. They came out great.

All done.
