My weekend assembly line - day 2

Day 2 of my weekend assembly line has come and gone. Looks like I have another day ahead of me. Day 3 will mainly be adding varathane to 2 projects - the night table and end table updates.

Here's my progress on the night table so far. I painted all of my projects using my new grey paint. I added a subtle shabby chic finish to the night table plus replaced the drawer pull.

Here's the new knob - looking good!

I'm not sure if I'm finished with the end table. I painted it with the grey paint then went to town with the shabby chic finish. It seems a bit boring but I'll decide tomorrow. I'm not keeping either piece so I have to keep that in mind.

The mirror update took a turn - always happens doesn't it? I painted it grey then thought maybe it's a bit drab. I love the details in the wood but maybe I could make the finish look a bit more dramatic or interesting... And very Art Deco-ish.

IN PROGRESS

I grabbed some craft paint and started painting the squares turquoise and the inset circles white. I think I'll go with the turquoise and white detail. I may have to refine the painting but it'll add some colour to my bedroom set.

Then I grabbed this frame I found mid-update and painted it grey... Why not?

Maybe I can find a funky print to go in it or a chalkboard then hang it somewhere! :-)

Oh yeah I painted these grey too... Grey here, grey there, grey EVERYWHERE! Love it!!

What a hectic day of updating! I did manage to stencil some cork too.

Fun times! Spring is coming and I'm gearing up to kick some craft butt!
