New Life for a Carved Dresser

It was a wrong turn that brought this dresser into Jen's (aka Girl In the Garage) life.  "On the side of the curb I saw this huge, sad, ugly dresser.  I cannot even imagine what kind of hideously 80′s bedroom decor this was once a part of," she laughs. Girl in the Garage dresser before

Broken Cane Chairs Get a Makeover

Marty has been documenting her kitchen remodel at Marty's Musings.  While she'd successfully fixed up her kitchen table, the old cane chairs that went with it were still a problem.  The caning had worn out long ago, and the only solution available was ill-fitting slipcovers.

Vintage Sideboard Restored

When DesignItGirl Nicole spotted this sideboard on the roadside, she was on her way to work.  "I didn't have time to stop and lug that huge piece of vintage into my truck," she laments.  "I prayed she would be waiting for me and the (bad) garbage man didn't take her. Sure enough there she was waiting for me on my way home from work." Design It Girl dresser before

Colonial Chair Makeover

Over at her blog Cutesy Crafts, Jessica says she's embarrassed to admit how ugly this black and gold colonial style spindle chair was before she gave it a makeover.  "From the hole in the cushion that the children enjoy pulling stuffing out of, to the teeth marks on the arm, it was WAY past time for a makeover,"  she laughs.
