Getting My Hands Dirty With Furniture Projects

A few pieces of furniture have been calling my name.  They're in great need of a makeover.

The first is a Roadside Recycle.  My son and I found it and hauled it home.  It will become a sideboard for my oldest daughter's home.  

This blanket chest has been in my garage for over a year.  The finish is in terrible shape but I think it will clean up nicely. (Since this pic was taken, I've already used Formby's refinisher on the top and the wood grain is beautiful.) 

I plan on finishing these two projects this week.  Wish me luck!  What projects are you working on?

  1. My project for the summer is to get my finished piece of furniture out of your garage!
    I know you are already wishing me luck!

  2. You don't need luck... you are an accomplished treasure-maker! I will send you happy thoughts while you work. I can't wait to see the finished projects!

  3. I wish I could find some good roadside treasures! Although, we don't currently have a garage, so I would have no place to put them! lol

    I'm working on redoing the kitchen (painting the brick, walls, and cabinets) and then painting our bedroom. I hope to have it all complete by the end of July!


I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please feel free to leave ideas and comments.
