Projects in process...

Hi Everyone!  I have been busy for the last month getting ready for the fair next weekend.  I still have to finish up a bunch of items but here's a little preview of some of the things I've been working on.
I built a twin bench and made a dresser bench (the white piece with the drawer) that I need to upholster and attach the seat like I did here.  I built a headboard shelf with pegs and painted the frame of a window minus the glass that I added chicken wire to, to make a message center.
I turned an antique drawer into a shelf like I did here but this time I painted the interior apple green.  And the big drawer behind it has been turned into a drawer coffee table like I made here.
 I still have to finish the top of the coffee table.
I turned the middle size drawer into a smaller coffee table or side table, more on this one later.
And another headboard shelf with pegs.  I have about 10 other projects that I've been working on but those will have to wait.  I have a lot of work to do this weekend, thank goodness the weather is going to be cooler so I can be out in the shop but we do have thunderstorms in the forecast so that might making painting a little more difficult.  What are your plans for the weekend?  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. My, you have been busy! Hope you get everything done for fair time!

  2. Wow loads of gorgeous things and I'm especially loving the drawer made into a shelf with the green interior. I hope the weekend work is going well !

  3. Have a great time at the fair, I'm sure you'll sell everything in no time.

  4. ohh my... I'm an addict... a diy repurposed addict. Looking at your benches and your drawer shelves and headboard shelves make me want to go build RIGHT now. Great inspiration Holly!
