Before and Afters

So I have not posted in awhile. I have been working on an some new projects, and I wanted to share them with everyone.  Here are a few before and afters.

Lauren and I went to an antique shop that was going out of business awhile back and I picked up this little end table for 10 bucks, and was not sure what i was going to do with it: It was very wobbly, coming unglued, and the paint was pealing.  So I took it apart, sanded it down, and and painted it.  I then sanded it again and added some stain.  
Another trip Lauren and I made was to a place called the Green project, we bought old spindles and cut them in half, then I had my hubby drill holes in the top to use them as candle stick holders.  I also had this little stool, and my sister in law was throwing this black candle holder.  I knew I could find something to do with them.
I painted the spindles and then antiqued them, I did the same with the stool and then painted a typography from Graphics Fairy.  With the black candle holder I decided that I would use it as a stand for an old hat of my grandmothers.
The little white one is form Canton it was and old spindle as well but all I did to it was add some stain.
And this is the stool that i am now using in my kitchen.
This is the black candle stick holder, I spray painted it gold.  I am not done though, I am going to get a styrofoam ball and cover it fabric so the hat can have something to sit on.  Sorry for the glare.
I am working on some really cute Easter baskets for my nieces and nephews here is a sneek peek, they are not painted yet.  When I finish them I will post and picture and explain what I did.
