Improvement is a GREAT THING!

Over the past 2 years I have been so pleased to find these
wonderful folding table & chairs from 3 different second hand stores.

The chairs are made by the 'Stackmore' furniture company.
I would love to find 2 more of these awesome chairs.

They are perfect to use when our Grandcuties are here.
Thus the dark brown upholstery!

Look at this beautiful 'Drexel Heritage' dining room set.
Unfortunately its previous owners were very rough on it
and so, it needed a face lift.

It was actually a little hard to paint over such beautiful pecan
& exotic burl wood. But it just had to be.

Pretty, huh!

This dresser was fun to transform. I usually wouldn't waste my
time on such a piece (particle board), but it still functioned well,
the chuncky handles appealed to me and it had some good lines.

Sweet "Ballet Slipper Pink" with Brown glaze.
The pulls painted up well with Oil-Rubbed Bronze.

I decided to paper the top instead of replace with a new piece of wood.
It's so PRETTY now! ~*~Lynda~*~

Wow! It's amazing how much better that table and chairs look in black with the new upholstery! Great job!
