Upcycling the kitchen table

When we moved into the house at the end of April we had a kitchen table that we were debating whether to keep. Originally it had been my mum and dad’s kitchen table from about 15 years ago and then it had been a kitchen table and a craft table for me for a few years while the chairs were being stored in my parents garage, but it was still structurally solid.  292 more words

Another boring shelf upcycled with red spray paint, red paint drips, and found rusty bottle caps.  I used the top edges of paper as a template to spray paint and get the red lines of dots.
