Remember I wrote how I’ve been a painting phenom of late?
One of the (many) projects that was included in the malay of pieces that needed refinishing was a ginormous entertainment unit that belonged to my friend Kari.
I only have one before photo to show off, and it isn’t of the entire unit (sorry about that) – but you’ll get the idea of what I was working with:
Today’s dresser makeover is sponsored by Liberty Hardware – and you’ll be so pleased it is because wait until you see how these pieces turned out!
First, I’ll show you the dressers I picked up out of someone’s garage:
Filled with spider nests, paint chipping, peeling, rotting and with a slight stench to […]
I wrote a post a few weeks back that showcased a DIY way to get your own gold handles. I used some spray paint over the old plastic coated handles and showed how easy and inexpensive the makeover was.

Could be because they are so easy to makeover but have such impact when you do.
Maybe it’s because there are a bazillion of them on Craig’s List and Kijiji, that you can’t help but get an ugly duckling for a steal.
Today’s desk makeover has to be one of my all-time favourite desk makeovers ever. […]
So remember I said that I purchased three wooden chairs last week?
And do you remember that I only showed you these two so far?
Since I had nothing to lose and some Arborcoat solid stain left from my treehouse makeover, I decided to play with colour a bit and create a painted chair that was a bit more whimsical.
I have had so much fun on Maxsold.com lately – have you heard of it?
It’s an auction site that people use to downsize or for estate sales. The items are posted on their website by location and then you can bid on anything you choose.
These chairs were an item I picked up the other week:
The auction items are generally much […]
