Applying the first coat of homemade chalk paint...
(See the original condition of this chest of drawers in previous post.)

Thanks to a can of "oops" paint...

Sofa Table - from Scratch

 From this...

 to this!
A custom job for a customer who provided a basic plan. 
I'm happy to be done.  I had to alter the plan to fit the materials on hand.  
All in all, I'm satisfied with the finished product.

File Cabinet

I can't find pictures of this wooden file cabinet in the rough condition we found it. I sanded it vigorously and  decided to paint the sides black and leave the natural wood exposed on the drawers. I added the trim around the bottom to cover a few rough edges.
The desk (below) is another recent project.  I painted the laminate top which had a few issues.  The pulls are not original to this left-handed desk.  It is well-constructed and provides a generous workspace and storage for the home office.
