So apparently my "chrome everything" project has been ripped off...

I will support it though, even though gorillas are not my favorite animal at this point in my life.

Of course I had to chrome him out.

Someone must have farted on his pillow.

Completed here with little friend. Maybe one of the strangest wedding presents ever but I hope the think of me and smile everytime they look at it. Selfish?

completed stool.

I completed my stool that I bought. I was planning on staining it but decided to paint it instead due to some imperfections in the wood. I used a rubber based paint so it has an interesting, hopefully durable finish.
I did the top and sides with a black corduroy that I found around the house. Pretty pleased with how it looks as I write this post while sitting on it.

hurricane elephant.

I bought this elephant at my favorite thrift store with plans to make it a wedding present for my brother and now sister in law.
Of course it was broken so my first task was to fix the tusk.

thrifty stool.

I bought this stool on Saturday at a local thrift store for 5 bucks. Obviously it is in terrible shape and I see it as a good first project on refinishing the wood and reupholstering the top. I already have taken it completely apart, removed the old fabric, and I am half way done sanding it.
I plan to give the wood a nice finish with Minwax. Thinking about going for a slightly darker finish. I am still completely undecided on fabric, need something durable and bold. Any suggestions are welcome.

table stuff.

A table that was bombarded with stickers, marker, and paint while at my college house in Salisbury with my garagemates assistance. Presently working on coating it to protect everything.
