Some projects finished this summer. . .

I worked on several projects this summer.   I repainted our wooden Adirondack chairs which were a dingy white from when I originally painted them about 5 years ago and now they are a lovely forest green.

Years ago I inherited a sewing cabinet from Jay’s grandmother.  It was painted dark brown and was actually quite ugly but I loved the shape of it and hung onto it.  Recently I had it stripped and then I antiqued it white and it is now a side table in one of the bedrooms here in the mountains.  I thought it came out quite well!

A smaller project was one I had seen online and pinned it, hoping to do it one of these days.  It is a picture frame backed with chicken wire and it makes a cute “bulletin board” in my kitchen.  I couldn’t staple the wire on like the instructions said as it was too thin so I used heavy-duty duck tape to tape the wire on.  Below are a few photos of the frame:

I decorated the clothes pins with patterned paper and ModPodge!

More tomorrow, hopefully, on some smaller projects I’ve been working on!

  1. Great job! You’ve definitely earned your keep doing all these projects…I’m impressed. I think Jay is going to be a happy camper. You definitely saved him a ton of $$$.
