A Couple Projects I've Done This Summer

I've been busy all summer and haven't had a chance to update my blog!

I bought a couple of neat mid-century modern pieces of furniture and refurbished them. They were purchased at Peddler's Mall, an indoor flea market here in KY. I mentioned it in this previous post.

The first piece is this cabinet. It was pretty rickety and rough and had years of smoke built up on it. The color was way too dark. I only paid $9 for it.

I painted it a chocolate brown and the back panel is off-white. Now when I put my collectibles on the shelves we will actually be able to see them!

The next piece is this bar. I really liked the design but the color was horrendous...sort of a greenish-brown fake wood. It was only $12.

So I used some of the leftover paint from the cabinet and here is the result:

I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Now I need to throw a cocktail party!


  1. Awesome job!!! You are very creative! Love your blog, by the way. And thank you for listing mine!

  2. Thank you so much! I haven't done anything with my blog in a long time... I really should get back to it. :)
