A Project And A Half

Here is the mystery project I was working on, another island. Last summer I had made a wine bar/sofa table similar to this kitchen island. I used an old chair that sat on my deck for about 5 years.

I had it in a pile to junk because the top pieces broke, but then saw the mission style sides and thought, "I can make a table from this!" I used a wood top from a coffee table on this one, and some scrap boards for the shelves. It still needs a coat of poly and I am going to add locking wheels to the bottom, but haven't made it into town to get them.

The bonus project is only half done. I thought it was all the way finished, until I took a picture of it and saw that I needed a few more coats of spray paint. So here it is before black spray paint--a catchall for office supplies, chocolate, jewelry, etc. Do you see some of the thrift store finds I showed a few weeks ago. I am off to see a play.

PS--I changed my blog look (again), but don't get too used to it. This was totally a blue background on my laptop??? Not sure if this is me or not.


  1. It looks green on my computer. It looks nice! Jen

  2. I just love your junk transformations! They remind me alot of, well....US! (JunkFest girls) We just love taking the unusable stuff and making it great again. You do a great job!!

    Saw a picture of the explosion in the paper...all I can say is WOW.

  3. I am diggin' on that table. Great upcycle! The half project looks fine to me, maybe I have to see what else your going to do to it. Either way, great idea, I likey a lot!

  4. This is so cool! You always make the neatest things! I could see that container thing painted white and put in my bathroom to hold soaps, washclothes,etc. It would be so handy! You do a great job.

    That was terrible about the explosion. Did they ever find that lady!
