My husband and I committed to overhauling a piece of furniture to be auctioned off for the ALS Association. Henry, the husband, controls the power tools, while I work on the design and finishing work. You can take a look at more of the process on my blog by following the link below.
  • The before. A 30.00 cabinet from Goodwill.
  • The finished product.
  • Stained top with a wax finish
  • We cut out the inlays and replaced it with chicken wire.
  • Cute feet are fence post toppers...2.50 each!

    What an outstanding makeover! I love the colors you chose and the chicken wire was a perfect choice. You have a great eye for detail and a very creative mind.

    When someone in my community put out an old sofa, I "rescued" the beautiful bun feet by simply unscrewing them and saving them for just such a project. You COULD buy them if you had to.
