Refurbished hand truck

This hand truck (or what I would call a refrigerator dolly) cost a small fortune 20 years ago but looks worse for wear now.  A bit of elbow grease and some lime green paint and it is refurbished to almost new again!  Don’t have/need a hand truck? Think wheelbarrows, garden tools, etc and apply the same steps.

Did you know that this:

Pallet Board Desk with Total Boat

Working with epoxy resin doesn’t have to be daunting – trust me, I was daunted but was surprised at how easy it was to work with.  This pallet board desk is made up of rough, wormy wood, but the epoxy finish makes it a gorgeous working surface with character you won’t find anywhere else.

Round coffee table – you won’t believe the before!

You’ve heard me say it again and again – if you can find a piece that is made of solid wood, it is so worth saving!  Take this Game-of-Thrones-crazy round coffee table that I picked up for $40 and refinished to a beautiful statement piece for my family room.

I finally have a completed project to share with you – and it feels like it’s been FOR-E-VER!

This round coffee table was actually done a couple of weeks ago, but it looked […]
