Met Monday – A Corner Complete !

Welcome to Met Monday, see the link at the bottom of my post to find other fellow Bloggers with great before and afters. I am posting separate  MeMe’s this week to find out which ones I am enjoying the most – partially based on feedback from other participants and or visitors. I hope to do a couple of weeks of test runs and then decide which sites I will be participating in on a regular basis.

But It IS U.G.L.Y….

Great frame but  U.G.L.Y…..I paid $5.99 for this frame and picture but, thought it was worth it for the style of frame and the great size.

057First I painted it black

Second I added left over fabric from Orphan Annie Chair (previous post) and tucked it snugly in between the picture and frame. I then used black rick rack (from the thrift store) and glued it with buttons.

074

Wall –laa !

 Plastic – don’t discount it….

Behold the plastic mail sorter….I love the carved details and thought for a buck ninety nine – it was worth a shot. See how I added it to the next project.

A Place To Hang Your Hat

Here is a hall tree – I bought for $35.00 – it was the right size – so I shelled out the bucks. I forgot to take a picture of it standing up.

One coat of paint and awaiting 2 more.061

Don’t get discouraged after the first coat – it won’t look super black yet.

This piece is perfect for this little corner in my back entry.

109

I added the mail sorter – it fits perfectly and see the frame I just made ? We now have a spot for hubby to hang his hat, the mail to be NOT lost and a memo board for lists of things needed to be done…

This table flew so fast into my shopping cart – I was so giddy with happiness ! I spotted it at GW and it was a mere $4.99 – I didn’t even give it

019

It is an authentic re-production from Lane Furniture. It is solid wood but, beat up a bit.  I had to bondo some cracks and sand it really good. I removed the tabs on the bottom – as they weren’t even and the table was quite rickety. I replaced them with new felt circles – which are like Heaven ! I bought them at Wally Mart and I will have to let everyone know what brand they are – way cool !097

This little table shines now. I used Behr glossy latex black – used the air compressor and paint gun – rather then the spray paint can (since I was doing the hall tree too)

I love the odd shapes of some frames and buy them whenever I find them at a good price. It's so darn expensive to frame anything now a days!

Perfect spot for your new frame!

I love what you did with the picture frame & hall tree. Boy I sure do wish I could find a hall treelike that for $35. I have had my eye on one for a while now that is old & whitewashed but the sellers will not come down on the price. It is at an antiques store.
