today’s first before & after project comes from d*s reader . hannah truly had some visionary skills with this project because when is saw the before picture i thought, “oh hell no”. hannah found this rotten iron back nursing chair on ebay for a steal and discovered that the only parts that weren’t rotten were the legs and iron frame itself. it was truly a nightmare. but hannah pushed through and stripped down the chair to its frame and re-built and reupholstered the chair using fabric. she polished the legs and arms (some of the few non-rotting parts of the original chair) and now- voila! a brand new chair. i am so impressed with this project- well done, hannah! to see more images on hannah’s site.

i love sunburst mirrors, so it’s always fun to see people find a way to create them using inexpensive materials. jennae at found a small, inexpensive sunburst mirror on etsy and decided to expand it by adding bamboo barbecue skewers and painting the whole thing black. i love the expanded look and the clever use of skewers. thanks for sharing, jennae!
