Furniture Transformations

When my maternity leave ended, Aunt K.K. came and kept Edy for the remainder of the school year. I was so thankful that Edy did not need to go to a daycare and that she was in wonderful care in the comfort of our own home.
In a few short weeks, Casey is moving into her own apartment and has a ton of great furniture. She asked me if I would help her refinish some pieces to better fit her taste. After all she has done for us, I wanted to help her in any way I could.

While Graham was in Nicaragua, the girls and I headed down to Conway so Casey and I could spend our evenings sanding, staining, and painting furniture.

The first piece that we refinished was so much fun. I sanded, stained, and polyurethane-d this cart for a whole new look. What do you think?
We did the same thing to this little baker's rack for the same look.
The second night, we did a lot of spray painting. I forgot to take pictures of these items before we started, but believe me--they look completely different.
This mirror looks fabulous in person. We sprayed it black and I sanded up the corners for a great transformation.
We put down plastic drop cloths while painting. This is what our feet looked like at the end of the night! HA!

Above: I wish I had taken a picture of this nightstand before we started staining it. Casey power-sanded it, we added a couple of coats of a dark mahogany stain, and added new hardware. It looks great!
Above: This was an unfinished wood table. A couple of coats of a Cranberry Red paint and Wah-lah! This is going to look great on your patio, Casey.
Above: This is a picture of the queen size bed that will be in Casey's master bedroom. Please excuse the sand particles in the air. I think I took this picture when Casey was power sanding one of the nightstands.

This little wicker shelf ended up being so cute after the many coats of spray paint finally covered all of the brown.
When Graham and I married, his parents gave us this cabinet. When AG moved into her "big girl room" we no longer had the space for it.
On the final night, Casey and I painted it black and I sanded the corners. I LOVE how it turned out.
Casey, I had a great time working on all of the furniture with you. I can't wait to see it all in your new place.
