|The horses are fine. Bored, but fine 😅
|This was a dining room table that came from my great-great aunt. The top was pretty beat up, although the legs just needed some polish and old English.
|Plz ignore the train wreck that is my tack shed - all the construction moving of supplies has me ITCHING to do a reorg this winter with all my new space and leftover construction materials lol. But the photo was intended to show the desk/vanity.
|We picked this up off the side of a local gravel road a few years ago - DH saw some potential. It had free spray painted on it 🤦
|This was actually a pew DH refinished a few years ago, rescued from the old church on our property. I used it as a ladder to reach my upper rack of bridles (bad me) and it needed some TLC to be glued back together.
|Looks great in the guest bedroom though!
|Detail on the dining room table leg.
|We winged it on the stain color from Walmart (not a ton of selection lol) and it ended up being basically a PERFECT match!
|Top is the new stain, side is original finish.
|Sanding down the desk
|First coat of stain on the top, and then we just stained over the original finish (which apparently you can do with this product 🤷♀️ #winning)
|I really love the inlay detail on the drawers
|The handles at one point were brass, but were SUPER tarnished
|I had a can of gold Rust-Oleum, so I went ahead and gave 'em the old razzle dazzle 😂
|These chairs were also in my tack shed being stored -- thankfully they ended up still being in pretty decent shape (we originally thought we might need to reupholster them) so some polish and old English and they were good to go!
|Plz ignore the diaster behind it 🤦
|After it's second and final coat of stain
|Those handles really pop!
|Made that to show a friend the progress!
|I have zero before pictures of this, but it was a spectacularly beat up boring old end table that I planned to put out on the curb.
|Instead, DH spray painted (I know, I was horrified) the bottom half black (we already had the spray paint), sanded down the top and stained it with leftover trim/door stain from the house, and naturally I had to make the handle gold too lol.
|It actually turned out... Not terrible? I needed a nightstand anyway and we used what we already had, so the investment is like...30 minutes of work haha.
|We ended up rearranging the bedroom to feature this between the windows. I'm so tickled with it!
|Had to do some decorating and also buy stuff to protect the freshly refinished top 😁
|We also hung some artwork this weekend - I'll need a chair or something for it, and probably a mirror, but I'm pretty happy with the results of our roadside trash and a $13 can of stain, lol.
And hopefully that means soon I can get back to... Ya know.... Riding 😂 thanks for putting up with all my non-horsey posts for the last 6 months!
