The blue painted bench made me gasp! (in a good way) Is that sick, or what! I love these made-over pieces. Nice post!



Totally understand the gasp thing. I wrote about it here. Cheryl has great taste, doesn’t she? And it’s amazing what a coat of turquoise can do.

Great place to get ideas for things one might want to throw away…love it!

I adore your furniture! This is one of my favorite things to do…in fact I am almost finished pulling staples out of a darling, forlorn, little chair someone covered in the most awful fabric, not to mention the green, gold and purple tissue paper they glued to the wood! Who does that?! I will be posting this darling chairs makeover in the next few days on my blog (click on my name).

Hi Lylah,

Right. Now maybe we can recycle, or rather “upcycle” some of those things in our garages, attics, sheds….

Great to see you at HomeWorshop!
