1  A couple coats of paint and some imagination and old is new again! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katy23669 on: September 30, 2009 04:53:12 PM
I forgot to take before pictures but these tables and chair were headed to a wood pile somewhere.  I tightened the rungs up on a couple of them and then added imagination and paint:

Steampunk Chair:
You can't really tell from the pictures but the silver parts of the chair have glitter mixed in with polyurethane for the finish.

2  No one wanted this ugly duckling... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katy23669 on: September 30, 2009 04:20:47 PM
I went to a yard sale and everyone passed on this vanity (it was marked $10.00) and even though the veneer on top was bucked and missing in places I could still see it was a beautiful piece and deserved some TLC.  So I began practicing how to do faux marble and this is what I came up with (the top is not as yellow as it looks in the first picture):

3  Office Makeover in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by katy23669 on: September 07, 2009 08:10:33 PM
Today I decided my office needed some zip
I cut out some polka dot stencils with contact paper and a rotary cutter. And I painted the fan blades as well as the window sill & frame.
The green paint is lime green so it is much brighter than it appears in the pictures

4  My Shop Neighbors call it The Crazy Chair Updated w/Upholstery in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katy23669 on: August 03, 2009 06:47:16 PM
I think I have finally found the perfect upholstery for my chair:

I have been working on this chair in between projects.  It is all done freehand.  I think I have about 6 more hours of painting and I will be done!

7  Tattoo Jeans For Advertising in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by katy23669 on: December 18, 2008 03:16:56 PM

Like so many other small businesses our Boutique/Consignment shop is struggling and we have been wracking our brains to look for ways to advertise on the cheap.  Since I have a habit of "coloring"  jeans when I'm on the phone I thought why not put some advertisement on them too! Jeans came from eBay ($3.99) shoes from our shop ($5.50) C&C welcome.

8  Trixi LaRue Jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katy23669 on: October 14, 2008 06:20:23 PM
I own a consignment boutique and we have hundreds of jeans that get donated to local charities every month so I decided to keep a pair by the phone to use for doodling. This is what I've come up with so far:
