The Paisley Chair




I got a couple of these chairs off of Craigslist to redo. I've got a thing for chairs since I want to have all different kinds of chairs at my dining room table ("all different kinds" = a whopping 4!).



Night Stand/Plant Stand/Coffee Table etc...

I decided to undertake the table that my husband had been using as his nightstand since the beginning of time. I think it's original purpose was a coffee table or some such thing, but I wanted to use it as a table in my new reading room.

Ages and ages ago, I bought a vinyl tablecloth from Ross for like 5 bucks with big plans for the cute pattern. I also happened to have a shade of green paint that would go right along with it....so, between the table, the tablecloth, and the paint, I was all set to go!

Stained Glass Lampshade Flower Pot



I found an awesome stained glass lampshade at a thrift store for $16. It was missing one piece on the top edge, one piece needed glued back into place, and a few cracks and chips here and there. I loved it! And ever since I saw someone's pin on Pinterest about turning one of these things into a flower pot, I've always wanted to do it.
