A few "before" and "after" photos:
|These old kitchen cabinet drawer sections were 50 cents apiece.|
|When I replaced the missing knob on the bottom drawer, I had to pay |
a whole $3 -- SIX times what I paid for the drawers!
|Drawer segments "after". |
They started out as a console to go under the big screen TV and ended up being a sofa table/desk unit behind the sofa
(see photo below where they "kinda" show).
|$10 dresser. Looks good in this shot but the top was scarred up and dimpled from water damage.|
|Dresser after (with doors still to be put back on)|
|Boring, blah, bland, blonde night stands with ugly laminate tops -$12.50 each|
|The whole "Zen" bedroom.|
|Not a close-up but an "after" shot of the frame. Inside is a burlap-like fabric and paper letters.|
|I bought three of these chairs (complete with puppy-chewing damage on the lower spindles) for a total of $4.50 for all three.|
|$10 partially-stripped drop leaf table.|
|Chairs and drop leaf table "after". They all ended up going elsewhere in the room. These things have a life of their own!|
|The livingroom partially done. |
The candle holders on the table (which still need two more candles and a bamboo tray underneath them!)
are old metal weightlifting weights.
