Faux Aged Iron Patio Furniture

Courtney of Sweet C's Designs had some ugly black metal patio furniture that she really didn't love.  "This ugly furniture was in my “to trash” pile, when  I hit up an antique store in Fort Collins and I grabbed some gorgeous aged iron planters that I absolutely adored," she says.  "I decided I could try to make the furniture match the aged iron."

Jess blogs at Bright Green Door.  She was delighted recently to find a honeycomb lamp at Target, but when she brought it home, "every lampshade I owned was either too big or too small and I couldn't find ANYTHING the right size," Jess confesses. Bright Green Door popcorn tin before

Vintage School Desk Makeover

Nicolette blogs at Decorate Decorate.  "I spotted this sweet old school desk in the driveway of a house with a sold sign outside," she says.  "I knocked on the door and a very sweet woman told me it had been in the garage for years and her children were all grown up now. It was in a bit of a state and I don’t think she could understand why I wanted it!" Nicolette Abram school desk before

Francophile Chest Makeover

Over at Rendition Road, Stacey tells us, "I found this solid, hand built chest tossed curbside & took her home.  I could tell it was hand built by someone who knew what they were doing. She was in such bad shape though, cleanliness wise, that she needed some intensive care once I got her home." Rendition Road wood box before
