Checkered Clock

This is one of my first. I really got into re-doing old thrift store clocks. I loved the 70's style numbers on these. This one used to be wood paneling on the outside, again, I did not take any before shot. darn!

This was kind of hard, because I spray painted all white, then taped off the squares, and then did black. I love how it came out, and I still have it. This one's for me :)

The Lounge Chair

When on of our chairs broke, Jen n' Joel went on a hunt with me to get a new one. On our way to the store, we saw this little baby upside down behind some store. Ross had said he wanted a chair with this lounge look, so I knew we had something here. Problem was, I hated the brown sides. Here's a picture during recon, because I forgot to take one before:
Now things got really interesting when I discovered that those arms were plastic. Yep. Plastic. Terrible! They had to be sanded and primed with a plastic primer, but after all was said and done, we got this chair:
It came out great, and it was a recliner! When we moved though, it had to go, because we would no longer have an awkwardly long living room, and the house we moved into just didn't have the space for it. If you are wondering, that's two coats of Robins Egg blue ( if I remember correctly) and then a charcoal wash. I sealed it like 8 times with polycrylic, so that it wouldn't chip. It worked   :)

Chocolate Brown & Robins Egg Blue Bedside tables

Here are the before pictures of the brown & blue bedside tables:

I saved these from a huge yard sale. No one wanted them, but I thought they would make a really neat set if they were repainted. So after a lot of debate, here's what I did:
They sold to a nice young woman from Oakland. Hope they are doing well!
