Projects, projects, projects

There are a few small projects in process at my house this week. Here is a glimpse of what's to come...

This charming vintage chandelier was only $7.00 at a garage sale! It is going to get re-wired and painted. I have been collecting vintage crystals for this chandelier. I need to find more, but these will be a good start. Why is it so hard to find vintage crystals?

Aren't the colors on this bench perfect for a little boys room? It is going to make a perfect storage area! My mother in-law gave it to me and I am quite excited to fix it up. There are a couple spindles that need to be fixed. Some moldings will be added, then sanded, painted, and glazed. It is going to be a fun piece to work on for sure.

I have gathered all of the unused picture frames around my house; they are all going to be painted white...perfect for a gallery wall somewhere in my home.

This light is going to get a fresh coat of paint and cleaned up. It is going to look new again as soon as I am finished with it.

Thanks for reading!
