Here are two projects I’d like to get done in the next two weeks or so.
First, I’d like to reupholster this pair of chairs I got off Craig’s list. I didn’t really need two more chairs in my house, but these looked cool and maybe art deco, and the guy only wanted a ‘best offer’ for the pair.
This is a beautiful pillow from Etsy. I think I might have to get a pair of these pillows, I love them so much!
Second, I plan to refinish this lovely midcentury modern night stand I ‘trash picked.’ Seriously, it was almost like this thing fell out of the sky. I have been kind of obsessed with midcentury modern recently, and I really need a night stand for my side of the bed. I was poking around on Etsy and saw loads of great examples of nightstands, but the ones I liked were all a little bit more than my meagre budget could handle. Then I was walking in to work and saw this on the corner with a sign that said ‘take me.’
I’m pretty sure it is teak because it is so fricking heavy. I love the copper handles and feet. I plan to sand and refinish, and then silver leaf the metal bits. (I still haven’t learnt my lesson regarding silver leafing–but that is the subject of another post)
