Can you guess what direction these redos are taking today?  If you get off course, I might give you a few pointers, but you might have to needle them out of me.   Or, since that’s all puns I can come up with, you could just look with your eyes and plainly see that they each feature compass art!
First one from Korri at Red Hen Home, who had been itching to compass-ize something and found the perfect place to paint one: a circular coffee table!

But you don’t need a perfect circle to make a compass makeover. (Even if you DO need a compass to make a perfect circle.  Just not this kind of compass.  The other kind.  The one that makes for a less attractive graphic on furniture and also a semi-scary weapon in middle school.)  So no, you don’t need a perfect circle, because Janet from The Empty Nest compassed up the front of this dresser and it looks terrific!  Did you notice the knobs too?  Great work ladies!

    I liked the table better after, but I feel sad about the pretty wood on the dresser that’s all painted over now. I have a dresser with similar wood, although it has even more art deco detailing to it. I want to polish it and make it glow like it once did.
