Refinished FurnitureDecember 4th, 2008 in member junk
Broken child's chair from the side of the road; perfect for table legs, a vintage chalkboard & chalk -- can't keep children from grabbing it and writing!
I repaired a vintage telephone table, purchased for $3.00, painted it, distressed it and added some gorgeous Cavallini & Co. birds (cut them out of a sheet)...usually furniture doesn't get a title, but this one is: Every Bird Speaks
Same yard sale, another vintage table, this one a steal at $5.00, amazing what black paint will do; i covered the peeling leather top with pages from a German novel, then used the book to make a nifty conversation piece (the flower holder is a coffee cup sitting into the pages carved out to contain it). Hence, German Coffee Table book. The wheels/casters from the table were stripped and in the drawer, I use them for a fun industrial look...a nod to german engineering and vw, you think?
Pattern or design used: My own design
