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!
I really believe that most things can be saved. OR recreated.
But you need to have a vision. Sometimes it take a bit of time to see beyond what is presented to you and think outside the box.
A few weeks ago I did a table for the neighbours and wouldn't take anything for doing it. So they gave me a couple of old pieces they thought I might do something with. Be prepared. The before pictures are brutal.
This top one had a drawer that was just falling apart. It did have the door fronts, but I didn't like the look of it all. Stickers and scratches all over the piece. But it was solid. My husband (who really has become my partner in crime) and I talked it over and decided to do something completely different with it.
This one was missing the top drawer completely! and the bottom drawer had huge gouges out of it. You can't see it very clearly in this pic but it was also split and just not fixable. But again...we decided to go in a completely different direction.
We worked hard, and I'm sorry I don't have any in between pics. The Top picture was an entertainment unit. We cut off both the top and the bottom of it and redesigned it to this.
Wouldn't this look perfect in your mud room? Entrance? kids room for holding extra toys?
I added a splash of blue inside the drawers :)
I'm 5'6" and it is the perfect height for me to sit on.
The handles were replaced and the whole thing was very slightly distressed and sealed to last :)
