We are a young couple remodeling our first house...one outdated / ugly thing at a time. This blog documents our remodel projects and ideas.


5 Upcycled Remodels

This one's for you, mom and dad, so you can see what I have been working on. All of these pictures are after I have worked my magic on them. However, I don't have any before pics.

$6 stool from the ReStore that had some nasty fabric. I kept the legs as is and only recovered the top.

Free chair we dug out of the tornado house. I painted it with miss matched paint from the Restore. Then I stenciled it and distressed it. I still need to poly it.

Free nesting tables, also dug out of the tornado house. Remember how the glass was chipped on one of the tops? I cut out pieces of wood and then wrapped them in batting and then chevron fabric. I also spray painted the metal bases.

$3 side table from Goodwill. It was cheap looking. I spray painted it gray then stenciled and distressed it. I can't decide if I should leave the legs gray or paint them black - and the spindle thingys too. Opinions?

$7 floor lamp from the ReStore. I splatter-painted it (and got white paint all in my hair). I also recovered the shade with houndstooth fabric. I like it, but don't know if it should have a different color shade...maybe red?!

I need to come by your house and pick up some of the other tornado house freebies since I have already finished the two I kept. I've been on a roll lately.

Okay, love the chair... gives me an idea for my "teacher's chair" that I will need in a few years. :)
I would go with painting the table legs black instead of leaving them gray. I think it would give it a little more character.
Very cute, sister!

Love these, great makeovers! Would love to see some pics of the rooms they end up in.

Wow! You've been busy! Love all the projects and the "sit" on the chair is so cute! I'd go with black on the spindles and legs of the gray table and although I like the houndstooth shade, I agree -- red would be great!

I'm loving the chair- maybe I should paint and chair and put "SIT" on it so my son would sit on it instead of stand! I would love it if you shared this @ Workshop Wednesday!
