Side Table Makeover {chess or checkers anyone}

My garage sale side table find is now done with his makeover!!!

Anyone up for a game of chess or checkers?
I'm naming him "knight"
You can see more before pictures HERE. 

The darker color is Martha Stewart: Crevecoeur

The beauty of this piece is you will never have to pull out a large chess board or checkers board. I'm on the look out for some game pieces and a basket for the under side to keep them in.
 


I'm not a fan of the new handle, so I'm looking for a new one. I like the original handle but it's brass, so I might just spray paint it white and glaze it.





This is what it looked like BEFORE. You can see more before pic's HERE.


And AFTER

Junk Planter {painted wheelbarrow}

When I spotted this old broken wheelbarrow leaning up against my mother in-law's barn, I had to do something with it!!

I knew leaving it it's original color of red would look too "junky"  for her...but PURPLE is her favorite color and it just so happened that I had a gallon of free paint from my dump haul.  I slapped on a couple of coats and placed her bird feeder next to it.

The plants cost about $20.

 Yes I didn't paint all the way down...once the plants fill out it will cover it.



I forgot to take a before picture, but this is kind of what it looked like..minus the wheel and add more rust:-)
