 Here are a few of my recent 
refurbished pieces:

An old wooden chair that needed
a make over

An old coffee pot in need of restoration

I painted the chair with a mix of grey and white paint and added white stenciling 
to the back and seat of the chair

My hubby worked with several cleaners
to restore a shine to this old coffee pot
(and received major points too!)

I also used the same technique
on an old $5.00 "thrift store" chair

You can just call me the "AFTER" girl
because I ALWAYS forget the before pictures

Oh well, believe me they look 
way better refurbished!!
