Bargain Side Table from Goodwill get Makeover with a little paint. Before and After

Matthew is growing up and ... read more

Painted Wing Chair...it worked! wing chair. A great project

Painted wing chair...it worked! There she is, relegated to the corner of the upstairs landing.  Too loud and colorful to be seen in public.  I'm talking about this wing chair of course!  I won this wing chair as a raffle prize at the High Point Furniture Market many years ago. This chair is still very comfortable and in excellent condition.  I just don't care for the gemstone colors and checked pattern.  At one time I got an estimate from an ... read more
