I heart Diane. I first met Diane a few weeks ago when she emailed me to inquire about the Metallic Secretary. She came. She saw it. She LOVED it. It went home with her. She told me that she had a few other pieces at home that she wanted me to put my stamp on; a cabinet, a set of nesting tables, and a side table. She requested that they be done in a palette of metallics, using this lamp, this pencil cup, and these handles that she purchased (on clearance, she had me know) from Susan … [Read more...] about Palette of Metallics

So, if we don’t change our name to “Clocks R Us”, we will certainly need to change it to “House of Metallics.” Not only does today’s project feature those shiny glimmering tones, but I picked up 5 pieces for a client the other day (Hi, Dianne!!) who would like them done in a palette of (you guessed it) metallics!! I, for one, can’t get enough. Hopefully you agree with me and will keep on reading. :) If you remember, I picked up this great, heavy pair of nightstands a small while ago for $10 … [Read more...] about Antique Champagne Gold Nightstands
Hey folks! I have to apologize again for my lack of project posting of late. I’m still waiting on receiving my new paint sprayer, which is holding up some of my large projects. We have some other projects in the works, and picked up a bunch more stuff at yard sales this weekend (fall is great yard sale season in AZ!) so there lots coming just around the bend. :) In some very exciting TL news, my Pediment Headboard Bench was picked in the Top 10 projects for the September party over at the … [Read more...] about DIY Club’s Top Ten!!
… I’ve been inspired to make a clock. They’re cute and they’re funky, to useful from junky. Hickory dickory dock. (Okay, so I’m officially a big nerd.) So, here’s the story. Once upon a time, there was a sad cabinet door in the free pile at the Habitat Restore. His brothers were repurposed into new cabinet doors for a fantastic armoire, but his second life was to take on a little more unexpected a form. CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING PROJECTS: A Comfy Cast-off OR A Turquoise … [Read more...] about Hickory Dickory Dock…

We’ve had a bit of success of late at a little boutique in town that sells some pieces for us, the latest of which was this wonderful hutch that Cara did a while back. But in a 500 square foot space, the loss of the hutch for display purposes in the store wasn’t going to cut it, so Cara and I started putting our heads together to come up with a good replacement on the quick. I had this hutch top sitting in the workshop for quite a while. I picked it up back at the Arizona Bloggers Tour … [Read more...] about French Country Hutch
A met a woman some time ago now who contacted me to buy the Lady’s Sitting Chair that was one of our first posts on the blog. She loved the chair and wanted to build a mismatched dining set around it, with eight chairs (seven more) and a table made from a (big) old door. We’re still on the lookout for the old door to suit, but we’ve finally finished searching for and refinishing the chairs. Now, in my humble opinion, it’s difficult to pull off just throwing a bunch of different chairs around a … [Read more...] about Shabby Elegant Dining Set
