Turn tatty and outdated eyesores into terrific one-of-a-kind pieces.
Blogger Melissa Darr turned her hand to restoring a telephone table, a vintage desk and chair and a Queen Anne-style seat.
After returning home from one of her op-shop excursions with this telephone table, Melissa says that her husband thought it was the ugliest piece of furniture he’d ever seen.
‘This didn’t give me a vote of confidence, but I had a vision of what I wanted to do with it,’ she says.
‘I saw the lovely turned legs and the opportunity to paint and reupholster it in a French-themed fabric.’
