Adrienne and I found these chairs by the side of the road when I first moved to Boston. I took a before picture, but my camera is not letting me upload it for some reason. They were unfinished chairs with a few splotches of red paint and dirt on them. I cleaned them off before painting them. I then used Mod Podge to apply some designs from Paper Source. Here they are now.

I recently redid the free nightstand I found on craigslist. I hate using spray paint, but I sort of like the antique, faded look of the nightstand now. I used flat white paint to highlight the details of the desk and a Target gift bag to make the flower design on the top.
