At Savvy Young Something, Sarah bought a solid wood white desk on Craigslist shortly after moving into a new house.  She admitted that the desk needed a lot of work, but sat in her basement for about five months.  I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to let projects sit on the back burner sometimes!

Herringbone Table Makeover

“We’ve had this table for years!  It’s been through messy toddlers times two, who have recently moved on to creative art expression with markers.  And being that we had pretty much scrubbed the finish right off of the table, drawings had become ingrained in the wood,” confesses Heather of Twin Dragonfly Designs.

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!”

Melissa blogs at Toad Turned Prince.  She tells us, “I was driving down the street and happened to glance over and see this sad sad coffee table sitting next to a dumpster. I did a U-turn in the middle of the street and headed that way. When I got there, I could see that it had good bones, but just needed some TLC.”

Piano Bench Makeover

Sara from Thrifty Treasures had a piano bench that had seen better days.  She also had a sample can of paint in a bright coral color that she was interested in using.  Since Sara usually gravitates towards softer colors, she wanted to try that bright coral on something small, first.  The old piano bench was a perfect opportunity.
