Trash to Treasure, The Leggy Edition

I love me some furniture with curvy legs. Remember Grandma’s chair?

Look at those curvalicious legs. She looks great in a micro-mini, huh? Like I always say, only wear a mini-skirt if you’ve got fabulous legs. (this would be why I don’t own any mini-skirts)

For today’s Trash to Treasure, I started with ONE CURVY LEG.

What is she going to do with THAT, you might ask. Don’t worry, I have no plans to start a business selling one-legged chairs. Or pedestal tables for guinea pigs.

Here I have gathered my supplies. Have you noticed how good I am at taking BEFORE pictures this week?

AND… Here’s the treasure! Not the strawberries, silly. See how I painted the candlestick and attached the plate??
Here’s another plate and candlestick combo.

The plate isn’t attached to this one, so that I can exercise my right to change my mind.

My fat bird lives here.

I heart her because she makes me feel skinny, and I haven’t found any jeans that can do that.

Okay, everyone, I’m so excited to see your TREASURES! Link up your post below, and PLEASE link back to Reinvented, so that your readers can enjoy all of the creativity!

  4. Kimm,
    This is a clever trash to treasure project. As my mother would say you can make trash look good! Thanks for stopping by my place; it is nice to get to know other bloggers. I also will be checking out your other projects, they look good! ~Cathy!

  5. Hi! found you from TCB, and I’m so glad I did! I love the chair makeover, and I have a couple that will get some TLC now!

    I’m also in love with the picture frame tray a few posts down!

  6. That chair looks wonderful! I need to start doing things like that I am just afraid that they are going to turn out awful.

    Thanks for stopping by…I have been in and out every so often b/c as you know my life is kinda chaotic…lol There are just not enough hours in the day…lol I am mso glad to be back to blogging though!
