Today while shopping at DI (local thrift store) this pot caught my eye.
It reminded me of the beautiful pots my brother made while he was in high school. He passed away 15 years ago & I'm lucky enough to have some of his pots in my home...like this one.

This is kind of a fun little storage bench, I was picturing for a mudroom or garage entry. I'm going to put it on craigslist, but if it doesn't sell I think I'll keep it for my closet. For some reason I feel guilty putting something so cute in my closet, so we'll see.
Looks cute with or without the cushion.
Here's the before. I had my eye on it for about a week but waited until the thrift store reduced the price. I'm glad it was ugly enough that no one else noticed it's potential!
It's so fun when a piece of furniture turns out even better than expected. This is one of those cases. I love everything about it! I've been waiting for the right project for these handles!
Doesn't look like much before, but anything with that much moulding and trim will look great when refinished!
And, bummer, it's already SOLD
Why am I happy, you ask? Well, remember this beauty from a few months ago? I really wanted to put it at the top of my stairs, but it was dresser height and just looked too short. So I've kept my eye out for something that's taller, but could be just as amazing! And I found it! You'll have to go to the bottom of the post to see the sorry before condition...
OOPS! I haven't put the upper handles on. Guess I got a little ahead of myself.
And I LOVE that it's not a TV armoire. It acutally has drawers and shelves for storing things so it's perfect for my hallway space!
This bed is the most gorgeous color of sky blue. I'm so bummed that I can't capture it in the pictures. The color looks so muted here. I glazed the whole thing with white so it has this beautiful whitewashed look which you also can't tell from the pics. Sigh. Trust me, it's dreamy!
