GARAGE SALE BOOKCASE:
The outdated wood color had me wanting to dump it on the side of the road. Also, one of the shelves was missing a piece of trim. so we went to trusty Home Depot thinking they would have an identical piece that we could slap on the bookcase.
But the big box store disappointed, and we bought a piece of wood, which the fiance carved to the shape of the original trim. I was skeptical at first, but he did an amazing job and the new trim looked like it had always been there.
COFFEE TABLE FROM COLLEGE:
This project was the hardest yet. She turned out better than I anticipated considering the many battle wounds acquired during the past seven years, which included splitting in half from a night of table dancing on St. Patrick's Day in the fiance's apartment, numerous stains from spilled beverages and food and pen scribbles. All it took was some wood filler, primer and Behr paint and a lot of sanding.
GARAGE SALE NIGHTSTAND:
Nothing a little wood filler, sand paper and a ton of elbow grease couldn't fix. I love how the white paint accentuates the pretty structure of the piece.
