Coffee table made of reclaimed palet wood

Coffee table made of reclaimed palet wood

Another item completed over this summer. I was working very hard to make  my outdoor area colorful and cozy 🙂

We have a big table and chair but I had no small table that could be  used when sitting on the bench. I found three small pallets and made this table out of them. I had to cut “legs” from – the bars at the bottom. I then used these bars I between two pallets – bottom one is upside down, then the bars from cut from the second pallet and the third one on the top. All elements connected together with the screws. Before connecting them I painted each of the parts with outdoor green paint and finished with the outdoor varnish. Finally I attached the wheels.

This palet table is super handy as can be moved around easily.








And this is the leg part cut off from one of the palets that I used in between two other palets to extend the height of the table.

Another renovated armchair – magic colors and quality fabrics.

Another renovated armchair – magic colors and quality fabrics.

I have finished this piece a while ago, but got quite busy over the summer months and  never published the any  photos. So here you go.


This time I had a bit more work as instead of stapling everything, I decided to sew some elements of upholstered chair cover.


Everything that you see on the surface is sewn,. I stapled only the back ad underneath of the chair.


The chair looks amazing with the matching cushions sewn with the same fabrics as parts of the chair.


The fabrics have vibrant colors and are amazingly soft.


Made with attention to detail,.


And passion. I wanted to sell it, but it loks so amazing in me living room, that it is going to stay here 🙂

*SOLD* Upcycled  white vintage dresser €200

I found this lovely item on adverts and immediately had this idea of repainting it white. I decided not to get rid of the mirror part as I simply liked it better without the mirror.


  
  


  
And this is how the dresser looked like before.

Very productive weekend of renovating furniture and upholstering armchairs 

It was a rainy weekend. The weather and greyness made me feel quite lazy,  but it did not stop me from finishing a few projects.  It was nice and fulfilling to stay at home and bring a few things back to live.

I have started the chair on Thursday afternoon from painting the frame, and I have completed renovating finished it over the weekend.
