Before and After

I have a number of projects on the go at the moment. Recently I found this chaise and ottoman for $50, so they are at the upholsterer waiting to be transformed into something beautiful. Or at least I hope so:

This is part of a $2 white table light which I (really my husband - he's better at it) am painting with aluminium paint:

At $2 each, these retro bar stools are not my usual thing but, hey, I'm branching out and becoming less 'safe'. We'll see how they turn out with some new fabric seating:

This wing chair for $20 is a bit hard to visualise as something beautiful, but I love a challenge:

This is a $2 table which my gorgeous hubby has transformed with some black paint and two new boards:

Into this:

I'll post my other ugly ducklings after their transformations.

Also, the lovely Georgina from Little Dream Girl has awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award.  I've written seven things about myself in my previous post, and I'm sure the blogosphere has heard enough about me for now. Thanks Georgina - it's always exciting to receive awards from fellow bloggers.

Finally, thank you to everyone for the encouraging comments for my previous post. They mean a lot. xx
