Red, White and Blue!

With Memorial Day this weekend and Independence Day just around the corner, I thought we could use a little red, white, and blue decorating inspiration.
Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Dresser Redo

Ahhh... a brand new sander! My sander broke 6 or 7 months ago
 and things were really starting to pile up. 

My new sander made it super easy to finish this dresser. Since I was using 
spray paint, it only needed a light sanding.

 The top already had this design so I sanded most of it 
off and then I just went over it, free-hand with fresh acrylic paints. 
Then I finished it off with a little floor wax for protection.

Vintage Inspired Jewelry

I have been dabbling a bit in jewelry making. I love collecting old, 
vintage jewelry that isn't really much to look at anymore. I mix the old with the 
new to create something that's fun to wear. Here are a few of them. 

Happy Monday!

Coffee Table Makeover

This coffee table was well used. The botttom shelf was cracked
 an the top had a ton of scratches and marks made from paint and markers.
 I removed the bottom shelf, gave it a good sanding,
 and a coat of red spray paint. I decided not to paint 
the top because it sanded nicely and painted table tops scratch too easily. 
I brushed on a couple of coats of a matte varnish and I was finished.

I thought it would make a great train table. 

I'm participating in a link party, Furniture Feature Friday,  on Miss Mustard Seed's blog. 
 There are a lot of fun furniture makeovers to check out.

Have a great day!
