Black Beauty{s}

Here's the after and....uh, just the after of a pair of vintage end tables.

I thought for sure I took pictures before I started working on them, but this is as close as it gets {the table I'm sanding}.  They're no where to be found or I'm losing my mind and I never took them.  It's probably the latter :(

What do you think of my new lamps???  I'll be posting on them tomorrow.



I've been displaying my "ashtrays" with pride because according to a knowledgeable reader who emailed, they're candy dishes.  Thanks Dee in San Diego!



If you're interested, they're in my shop.  Also, some good news - I now ship out-of-state!

  9. You do very good work. I read where you use Klitz spray primer but then do you spray paint with a sprayer or hand paint every piece?
    They all look so smooth

    those bar stools sure look fabulous

  17. I agree -- these are fantastic! I'm actually thinking of doing one of my tables in black. Did you brush or spray on the paint?

  18. Love your style! I have a small tip for you: I've noticed that you bend over while working. This may cause a back hurt... I have the same problem! So I put the thing I paint on an old living room table. It makes a short but lifted surface for the painting. Have a nice day!
