DIY Week & Weekend

Despite the fact that I frequently get frustrated by DIY projects, I'm working on several little things right now - this past week has seen a lot of sanding, painting and staining. First off, I'm painting a couple of thrifted mirrors for a store window display (check the store's Facebook page for sneak peeks). Stage one is priming and then they will each get a coat of trendy neon paint:

Also in the spray paint category, I'm working on a little metal table with pretty fretwork. It's primed, but I'm having a hard time finding Rustoleum brass far I've been to two Home Depots, Rona & Walmart with no luck :-(

Lastly, I'm sanding and staining the legs of my slipper chairs. I'm not a fan of the current orange finish, so I'm going to stain the wood a lovely dark walnut. I've sanded down the first four, and I'm hoping to finish this up tomorrow afternoon. Here's a shot of the work in progress:

What are you up to this weekend? Any DIY projects?
