Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
We in Ontario have been going through a wet wet cold couple of weeks. But I won't complain. My thoughts and prayers are with those in the upper North East coast of the USA. I couldn't imagine being without power, heat and a roof over my head.
For those of you who feel like you can spare some money, that's great, please donate to any number of organizations such as the Red Cross or the Salvation Army. They are also in great need of Blankets and Gas, as well as cleaning supplies.
Okay, on to what you all came for...furniture :)
Remember the sneak peek at the sideboard? You can see it HERE
Just to refresh your memory it started out looking like this
Loved it, but couldn't refinish it without the original doors.
So I bought new doors in the exact style that the old doors were.
And finally the reveal!
I've never done one with a mirror. I know I say I love all my pieces...but I'm seriously in love with this. I keep trying to picture how it was used when it was first built. I imagine a grand Victorian home.
Please ignore the camera strap in the mirror.
Except for the hardware on the doors, it's all original. I did clean them up, but they just didn't look right against the red...so out came the spray paint, and viola! They now not only look amazing they really go with the red :)
And remember this horrible drawer with all that ewwwy ugly felt?
Look at it now!
This one had the felt. I wanted it to match the inside of the sideboard which I painted to give a fresh look :)
The new doors were an exact match to the old ones...I'm so happy!
And look at all that lovely wood...I'm such a fan of natural tops :)
Don't look at the dirty mirror. I was just so excited to be done.
Working on more this week, I'm half way done another project, and not making a dent in the stuff I have stocked up.
I should be banned from second hand stores till I'm closer to having an empty basement!
