Fave Furniture Redesigns

After my last post on  statistically popular furniture redesigns of 2011, I was going to do a post on my favorite finds.  Although some of my faves were on the list, several were not.   So, I put together a list of a few personal favorites I've shared since starting my blog.  Neither of these were statistically the most popular, but I do realize that's partially due to the fact that I didn't have the same readership when I posted some of these.  So, many of you may never have seen them.  Which is another reason I wanted to revisit.  Again, click on the title to review the post.





You really need to see the before on this.

The Footstool in FOOTSTOOL and BENCH

This was from my first month of blogging.

I may have one more post in me before the New Year.  See ya soon.

  1. Look at me! I'm the first one to post! LOL!
    Once again, undeniably beautiful!
    I just found a pair of iron pool table legs that I want to use as the base for a kitchen island to replace our builder's island. They are on Chicago Craigslist and I am waiting for the individual who owns them to call me back!
    Seems right up your alley! I hope they are tall enough *crosses fingers*

    I am a fan of your work for sure!

So I am following you now and look forward to the next year of seeing your beautiful work! You have a beautiful sense of style--I love it all! Wish I could find all this beautiful furniture you find.

  14. You are truly an artist! Besides being able to create new things out of misc parts, you can refurbish furniture in a creative way. I love how you've redone these pieces. They are the kind of furniture that I would consider buying if I saw them in a store.

  23. You have been so busy and no one does it better. happy New Year. Richard from My Old Historic house.

  25. Oh Rosemary now we talkin'!! Those ARE some of my absolute favorites! And also the one on the cherub urn.... I go back to that one over and over. *winks* So much eye candy! I'm feeling a little drooly *winks* Vanna

  26. You are so productive on refinishing projects it's delightful to see. I've had a do-over chair hanging around here for years so yours are quite inspiring. Thanks so much for showing them off. Hope you'll stop by and see our orange decor. Happy New Year.


  27. I love footstools. There's nothing like relaxing on a couch with your feet at full extension. Having your lap top on a lap desk while you're at it also adds a very tasty icing to the cake.
