Spring is here with lots of finished projects!

This is the project I sneak peeked for you a few weeks ago. It was a mirror tha Helen and I had bought two for $15 each. One went in Betsy's Condo. The other had a mishap! I broke it, seven year's bad luck......good thing I am not superstitious!
I  Bob cut a piece of masonite for me to put in place of the mirror. I painted it with ASCP in Graphite. The rest of the mirror frame was painted Paris Grey with Silver Gilding wax.

I went to Office Depot and got some large push pins. Rubbed on the gilding wax and hung it in my closet. Makes a great place to sit  and get going!!

Below it is the vanity stool I painted and upholstered a while back.

I just love it!!

Finally finished this one, too! I also did not get a before picture, but this was a cabinet from the Day care that Melanie got when they were changing out furniture. It was just light pine wood.

I used a trick I found on Pinterest to replace the new hardware. Just copy the handle or hindge and mark the holes for drilling!

She wanted it transformed to her sewing machine cabinet. So I added a shelf.

In place in her Sewing/Playroom!!

She will have room for some other baskets and sewing items. So glad she loved it and waited patiently for me to finish this project!!

The patio is beginning to look Springy! We are making progress on all the junk treasures out there! So I can get rid of the pollen and get it cleaned off!

This was a sports thingy Helen had. I painted it with Graphite to use for a chalkboard. Color is Florence. This item is for sale if anyone is interested. Just reply to this message if you're interested! Would be great to organize backpacks with kids names above!

Finished up these items from a few weeks back.

Another tv stand painted with ASCP in Chateau Grey. This got clear and dark wax after I photographed it.

Thanks for visiting. I have several more projects in the works.
Please share my posts with your friends!
