Hello Everyone – Here’s hoping all is well with you.. Your thrifty girl has been piddling along with this dining room make-over project. I really opened Pandora’s box with this one. My first decision was to simply paint the set – which I did.. I grew tired of the black legs and wanted to change them up a bit. Here’s a sneak peek at the progress.. I really love the new color.. (I have to admit – I was verrrrrry nervous).. chuckles.. The color used is by Krylon called Metallic nickel. The paint has a smooth glittery finish and really makes the set look richer.
Well??? What’s your thoughts..
Up next – Fabric.. I will keep you posted. I had to break away from this mind boggling project, so, I updated another tray. Remember these.. well this is the third one. I decided to use it in the family room.
Here is the new look:
It really adds color to the coffee table and blends much better than the cranberry red
Okay – let’s move on to the birdcage. If you can remember a few weeks back – I picked up this vintage birdcage for $13.00 at a thrift store/yardsale.
When I spotted it I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. You know I like to change things up a bit and have multi-functional pieces. First up.. a new look. I used Rustoleum Glossy White and Metallic Gold spray paints to freshen it up. .. I’m so happy with it.
Can you say ahhhhhhh!!! with me… :-)
The wall paper samples… well —- they came in handy again. I used a gorgeous piece that had tree branches and a few birds (for nostalgia purposes) to line the bottom tray.
Guess what I’m using it for..
Yup… towel storage.. if you can remember I once used a planter for this bath,
I’ve been a naughty girl by buying more plants so it went back to being a plant stand. You know something, I think the bird cage looks even better as my towel holder.
This bird did not fly over the coo-coo’s nest.. :-) .. no sireee.. this bird’s thoughts can’t be caged in …
Do you think I’ve gone Coo-coo… ???
If not – welcome to my world of un-caged thoughts. Have you used a piece for unconventional purposes lately? If so, do share.
I’m off to fabric hunting – Wish me Luck! Have a great day
