3  30's/40's Dresser Re-Vamp in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by knottyjen on: March 28, 2005 07:22:45 AM
So I was looking for a new dresser because the dresser(s) i had before just were not working...they were big and cluncky and not my style i guess you could say. So i went hunting for a new one. I knew i wanted a long, short dresser, so i went to flee markets and thrift stores and i found one! Originaly i was $40, with a mirror but i didn't want the mirror so he said he'd give it to me for $35 and my mom talked him down to $30. This is the dresser:

and with doors open (i LOVE this style)

Then,with the help of my partner in crime, we sanded down everything thing so i could paint it. This is the outcome:

It cost me $30 for sandbelts, paints and supplies.
So this is a $60 dresser!
I tried looking for dressers and/or designs for something like this but i couldn't find anything. After doing this project though, i think re-vamping furniture is a new passion.
Feed back would be lovely....thanks!

4  Glue crazy mirror.... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by knottyjen on: March 11, 2005 08:56:39 AM
So here is a mirror i just made. I work at a glass fusion and sandblasting studio in morristown Nj...if you are in the area come and check it out!!!

I cut a circle out the size i thought was good. Then i took scrap pieces of mirror and drizzled hot glue on the back (the black side that makes glass mirror) Then i sandblasted it.
-side note- Now...one day i was dying my hair and i left hair dye in my medicine closet. When i came home the dye kinda exploded and took the mirror backing  but the glass was fine. So i'm gonna experiment with that knowledge and see if you don't have to sandblast the back cause i know not everyone has access to a sandblaster--

then i peeled off the glue and cut the glass into 1 inch squares and put it around the mirror while adding some other colored squares. The used a tile adhesive to glue them down. Let that dry for 24 hours then grout. Buy plan white or gray grout for ANY project you can tint grout yourrself. Use acrylic paint. Then you can make any color you want. Here's the finished product.

here's a close up

let me know what you think...cause i love making em and eventually i'd like to go into business and sell em and much more things....that i will post eventually. Hope you enjoy.
