A few befores and afters

Well the sewing is still in progress, but I've finished working on several pieces of furniture and decorative items at our new apartment. I thought I'd share a few befores and afters.

4-drawer chest found at a used furniture sale

after painting
wicker chest found at furniture sale

after painting (needs second coat)

another wicker chest

painted and ready to use

one of a pair of table lamps found at a thrift store

second lamp after painting. I spray-painted with blue,
then sponged on an ivory to add interest

pair of tables my sister found at a yard sale

after painting, used as coffee tables

I forgot to take a before of this 60s sewing machine cabinet,
but the after adds a bright spot of color to the living room
