An Amazing Before & After!

 


My friend sold me this project desk...she wasn't up to painting it!

 
It needed some help for sure!


One of the things I liked most about it was it's size....It could be used for a vanity, desk, sofa table, or a cute entry way piece....You can fit a good sized chair in the space also.

I had to sand down this piece first because it had lots of layers of bad paint jobs. Then, I had fun painting in chalk paint using old white and duck egg...I added some glass knobs also. Don't glass knobs make anything look better?
 I also used a medium wax called Rugger Brown by Fiddes and Sons...it is not as dark as AS Dark Wax...I liked how it turned out! I'm excited to use this wax on other projects as well.
 Sorry about the angle, but you can see the detail on the piece this way....

 There she is...ready for the barn....and maybe you!


I have so many more projects, I'm not sure where to start... but for now we are getting my daughter ready for second grade... school supplies, shoes, clothes.  My, they grow up fast!

Now, off to the pool for a dip!

Colorado, Here We Come!

 So for the next few days, I'll be waking up to this....

 And eating some ice cream here!
Relaxing with the family, Remembering old memories and making some new ones!

See you in a week or so!


Favorite Friday Finds!

 

Antique Type Set Letters! Aren't they fun! I recently picked up a Pottery Barn decorating book and they used them to spell out fun words...they had them stacked on small shelves. My friend Margo makes great necklaces out of them...check her out!
 We had some for the spring sale, but have since bought more...

 Letters, numbers, symbols...
 Capital letters and lowercase....

 Lots of choices....

What would you spell? Stock up for the fall....I think they would make cute Christmas ornaments or hanging off stockings....endless possibilities...

Start Dreaming! Fall is a' coming!

A Fun DIY Project Completed!


 Do you ever have a project in your mind and you just never seem to get around to it? Well, that was how this project started. I love ribbon and wrapping presents. There is nothing more fun than having the perfect gift for someone and then wrapping it in an extra special way. To me, it completes the gift...anyway, my ribbon was never in one place or organized, so here was my idea...



   
If you live in the south, you know what this item is, what it is used for and you probably have one hanging in your house. It's supposed to be used for a gun rack, but I had a different idea. I bought this one for $5 at a garage sale....
   


Painted it white and hung it correctly on the wall....


 Bought some dowel rods at Lowes and put all my ribbon on it! The entire project costs me under $10, it looks cute and is functional!
It is the start to my gift wrapping space...I hung up my sweet vintage B-day banner,  I have control of the ribbon, now for a fun tape/scissor holder and I'm ready. Watch out world, a crazy wrapper is on the loose!
