I loved the shape of these inexpensive, old folding chairs I found at the thrift store.   I painted them and replaced the cracked vinyl seats with a harlequin fabric. 
I m not finished the details but this is a closeup of the thrift chair.
I was given this old glass lamp with a broken plastic shade.  I replaced the shade with a contemporary one on sale from Pottery Barn ($20).  The base is painted with scenes of my cat and dog (And they still dont like each other).
I also painted the thrift side table it sits on too. (ignore the paint cup on the side, I dont take great pictures ).

This last summer  I started some painting projects and now I'm finishing up.  My dining room needed a new look.  I think it now has a funky, cottage feel.  I also found an orange cabinet last year and I'll post that next time (only so many pics to load).  Unfortunately, my BEFORE pics are on a CD that my sister has at the moment.
