In the shop

My shop right now is full of fun stuff! I'm excited to see how they will turn out, but I thought I'd take a quiet minute to show what I've got going on.

This desk is about 80% sanded and so close to ready to paint! I'm going to paint it black. Some of the handles are a bit bent up and need some cleaning, so I'm trying to see if they can be bent straight again or if I'm going to need to replace them...I really hope they can be kept because they are so pretty.

Last Saturday the ReStore was having a "door buster" sale....all used doors were $5! I picked up this one, and two solid/ heavy ones that we're going to use as work benches in the shop. This one I'm planning to use as a table or maybe a storage bench. I have an odd spot next to my desk where there is a large window, and I think a table/bench for a couple plants and office stuff would be nice there.I'll probably paint it white or light grey/blue.
This table looks really small in this picture, but it's actually big enough to fit 2 chairs on each side. It's really in very good shape, and is completely sturdy. I just want to paint the apron and legs white and put a darker stain on the top.
How awesome is this chandelier?! My cousin found several of them at the ReStore and gave me one! It's missing about 4 crystals, but other then that it seems to be in perfect shape. I'm trying to decide if I want to stay safe and paint it white like this one from I Heart Naptime (which would be totally beautiful with this piece) or get a little funky and go apple green, or bright yellow (something I would TOTALLY do if my house were painted white and I could keep it for myself....I would LOVE to have something like this!) Anyone have an opinion on which they think I should do?

I have a bunch of pieces that were too far back in the garage to get good pictures of, but I'll be sure to post them as I get access to them.
