This was the BEFORE... someone tried to make it pretty at one time. I finished the job for them and the new makeover is a gorgeous new color from Fusion Mineral Paint!

This vintage table had great bones but needed a classy update... 
see how a little paint and new knobs can give knotty pine a new classic look! And once again... no sanding, stripping, or priming involved.
Just paint!

A "Curb Alert" text yielded a gorgeous table with an awesome top! 
See what I used to transform the ugly piece into this stunning beauty!

The top of this mirror is no throw away! See what a little milk paint
did for this trash to treasure.

Introduction
Hi I'm Susan and I blog at www.homeroad.net. I am a repurposer, I find things on the side of the road or in thrift stores and turn them into something stylish and useful. Things that are headed for the landfill become repurposed and reloved. I craft, sew, build, and decorate. By day I am a preschool teacher and by night and weekend I'm a DIYer!

Also please visit Homeroad's Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/Homeroad where you will find projects I've built on my blog as well as one of a kind vintage items.
