Before and After - 01-30-2010

These are a couple of things I picked up at the thrift store for a few dollars...  they have been sitting in the burn "To Do" pile forever...

the nasty before...

the nasty inside...

 
now it  has something to sing about... I am so pleased how this turned out

 
(well that didn't take long... SOLD... thanks Barb)

solid oak Lazy Susan... the before

the underside...

the prim after... Minwax Ebony Stain

so much richer looking... don't you think

That is a couple more things out of my pile in waiting.

Stay warm and have a great weekend.
