I wanted to add a few updates to past projects, which I wrote about before finishing or having photos ready.
"We're Playing With Broken Glass!"
The jewelry rack and mirror--which we made out of an antique straight-backed chair, a busted hallway mirror, and lotsa hot glue--is all finished now. A few abandoned brass key hooks and brass drawer pulls have a new life as jewelry hooks.
"Is it for sale?" you ask with baited breath. Why, yes, it is....
"Why I Do Things Wrong: 3 Examples"
You may remember this post, you may not. It's funny, and worth (re)reading.
Anyway, I mentioned sticking a chisel, exactly like this one in fact, into my wrist while removing a tattered veneer from my first renovation project, an antique vanity table.
A few Sacramento Friends remembered the vanity table, but the rest of you loyal readers (all seven of you, and I cannot express how much I love you) might want to see the piece and decide for yourself if my blood was well spent.
So, Here It Is!

Today, my mom mistook the painted one for the real, which is like an early Christmas gift for me.
