Furniture in Review

Today I will repost some of the before and after pictures of 2010. It has been fun!

I got my jump-start by helping my daughter-in-law’s sister to decorate her first apartment.

Then I really started looking for more trash to treasure.

I rented a space at the Antiques and Crafts Mall in Pasadena, where I put several of my creations.

Remember the Drawer Upcycle?

Miscellaneous trash to treasure.

I made my television debut on Great Day Houston

I continued with the furniture frenzy.

And finally got this table completed.

I made a great daybed from a curb find baby bed.

This was the chair I used in kindergarten, revamped for my grandson.

As Christmas grew closer, I created my Grandson’s Stool.

And this Chair Reduction

Thankfully the word got out and a friend commissioned this Desk Upcycle.

I look forward to where the trash will lead me in 2011!

    Looks like you’ve been busy – but isn’t it so rewarding to go back and look at all that you’ve accomplished?
