Industrial Style Lamp from a Vintage Drill Press

Using a vintage drill press, a lamp kit, and parts from an old can light, I created this industrial style lamp.  This was an experiment and I am looking for some feedback.

Shell Back Chair Rescued

This is one of a pair of chairs I bought at an auction.  The auctioneer described them as "Needing a lot of work".  All the corner blocks were broken or so loose that the chairs could not...

Decoupage Music Table

The top of this old oak table was burnt.  So I upcycled it with some free sheet music printed on parchment paper and decoupaged over the burn marks.  Now it has a new look and a new life.

Beachy Shadowbox Table

When my neighbor gave me a beat up vintage shadowbox table I took it on as a challenge.  The wavy sides made me think of the beach so that became my theme.  I painted the piece turquoise...

Vintage Drum Table Updated with paint

Re: Cash Wrap with Vintage Tin Ceiling Tiles

Re: Overhauled Dresser with Vintage Blueprints & Yardsticks

Love the color, especially with blueprints. Great idea!

Re: Tennis Bracelet

I love the play on words. Very clever. If she has my sense of humor, she will love it.

Re: What to do with a Mammoth bookcase!

Great job. You were so smart to jump on this since it is real wood, not MDF. Looks like $4 ( and lots of your hard work) well spent.

Re: Vintage blueprint cabinet coffee table

Perfect! I am really inspired by your work on this.

Re: Truckee Veterans Hall Historical Landmark Replica Birdhouse by Greg Zirbel

Love it! I agree you should keep in indoors. I have tried some of mine outside & even coated them with poly, but they still took a beating from Mother Nature. I could see this in an entry with a framed photo of the real building nearby.
