This was my husband's office furniture from his old house. You can't tell very much from the picture but it definitly needed a little TLC. Here is the before...
and after with a fresh coat of paint and natural cork tiles added to break up all the white and add some texture. My mom found the chair for me at a yardsale for $5 so I painted it white to match and recovered the cushion as well.
This dresser was given to us but unfortunately I don't have a before picture so here is the after. Before it was a very light oak color with large (kind of tacky) gold drawer pulls.
This was actually a craigs list find. I loved the lines of it and knew with a fresh coat of paint it would be good as new!
Here is the after...Each time I refinish a piece of furniture I learn something new. With this piece, I didn't even think to fill in the holes where the drawer pulls were because I assumed I would just find new ones that would fit. After shopping around, I realized they don't make drawer pulls that length anymore for some reason so I ended up using individual crystal knobs instead. In the end I think I like the individual knobs better so it all worked out for the best :)
This last one I actually can't take credit for, but it's one of my favorite chairs. Unfortunately I don't have a before picture of this one either but it was in pretty bad shape. I bought this from a thrift store with the intention of refinishing it, but never got around to it so my mom did it for me. She did an amazing job! Thanks mom!
I have a couple other pieces I'm working on now. Hopefully I will be able to share them with you soon!
