I love love love this piece. I wish I would have had the before picture. I got it at a garage sale it was already gutted out. I sanded everything down stained it a really dark walnut color then my dad did this really cool concrete stucco to the center panal. which is the lighter brown shinny part. He then stained it and put a gloss on it. The coolest part about this piece is that we put a HP dream sscreen on it and an ipod player on top. So now it is a cool modernized vintage piece that will look amazing in any decor. I will probably keep this but would be open for some offers if the price is right. My uncle sells these for around 800-1500.
I was snooping around and found this beat up tv dinner tray lying in the trash. I thought awww what could I possiably do with this nasty chewed up piece of whatever. I wish I would have taken a picture I always get to excited to start and forget that the wow factor includes a before and after. Let me give you a mental image. It was just lying there covered in smashed cockaroaches and bird poop the legs were chewed up and it smelt like smoke But it was free so why not give it a shot. I put wood filler on the bottom where it was all chewed up and then I got out my handy electric sander and gave it a good scrub down. After that I painted it an aqua blue color and then decoupaged the top of it with whatever scrapbooking paper I could find. This is the end producted bot bad for it being free!
Oh my gosh I have been looking around forever for a little kid couch. I remembered my grandma used to own this little furniture shop and she used to make these and she would sell them for a wopping 700.00!!! I called around and my aunt still had one that her kids out grown. She spent all day and I mean 10 hours helping me reupholseter this fabulious couch that will seriously last forever. I will look awesome in my little boys room. Thank goodness for family...
