A bed turned shelf

This piece has earned a spot in our top 3 pieces. We found a twin size headboard and footboard on one of our yard sale pages. Someone posted a picture of a shelf from etsy that someone upcycled into a shelf. Of course we had to have it so I sent Pat out the next day to get it.

It is perfection! Pat did his thing which included his special paint technique :) it is perfect and the mason jars just pull it all together.

For your viewing pleasure......

Transformed coffee table

I was bored with my existing coffee table and we happened to score a coffee table at a yard sale over the weekend. Here is what is started out like....54x27. Way too long for our living room.

Pat cut it down to 36" which is much more manageable. He added some wood on the sides to make it more square. Painted the legs then added foam, batting and really pretty fabric. Lots of tugging, stapling, more tugging and some more staples later.....we have this beauty.

A simple before and after

Not much to say. Ugly side table.....pat painted, sanded and put on new hardware. We posted it for sale and it was out the door within 24 hours!

It's been a while.....

It has been a while since we have posted. But rest assured, Pat has been busy!
On their way out the door in 5 minutes are these super cool letter shelves. They were a custom request for 2 precious little boys. Hoping they love them! I now need a M one for our living room.
