Seems like I have bought quite a few "project" items lately. All of these were found in the last month or so at yard sales or thrift stores.

Vintage School Desk - desk & base to be spray painted.

This cute metal cabinet. It is a nice petite size. This will be spray painted & a new decal added. Might use this as a night stand in my daughter's room - or maybe not. I also thought this would be great in a play kitchen. Purpose to be determined later.

Cart with wheels. This was also only $2. Not quite sure why I bought this other than it was a good deal. I keep seeing similar style carts from IKEA on some of my favorite blogs. I plan to paint this a cute color and then either use it as a bar cart or craft cart.
This "chippy" mirror. The mirror has a lot of silver showing through but I am going to keep it intact. I am also not going to touch the frame - love the distressed paint. I plan on putting window screen over the mirror and using this to hang necklaces and jewelry.
And the best for last - this amazing metal glider.
This will take some sanding and painting to bring it back to life. I have a major soft spot for vintage gliders. I love them! I was very excited when my husband found this for sale online at great price.

Lots to do - but at least these are fairly easy projects to accomplish. I will show the finished results when complete.

  1. So many good pieces! Wow! But I'm loving the glider the most. I'm a bit obsessed with them this summer. Someday I MUST have one!
    Great job-

  2. oooh, nice! That yellow kitchen cart is awesome. I have been looking for one although I have no space for it! I passed up a beautiful pink one in mint condition. I thought about using it next to the bed as a night stand with a lamp on it. Still thinking about it and it's been over a year! Haha!

  3. Those are going to be some fun projects!! I love the cart the most!! I have a old school desk, fun decor!! Have a great wknd;)

  4. I absolutely love that metal cabinet! I would can think of several uses for it around my own house :-)

    Can't wait to see the "After".
