My friend Whitney at "The Patina Nest" sold me this awesome produce table! I turned it into my kitchen island!! It's pure white chippy shabby LOVE!!! Now, I've gotta go JUNKIN' to get some great kitchen stuff to display on it!!! I'm thinkin' some old silverware tied in a cute ribbon, some ironstone, and enamel ware...!!!

My space at The Old Red Lumberyard Junk Market!

This weekend was the last weekend for The Old Red Lumeryard Junk Market this year! I cannot wait to see the great things God has in store for 2012 at ORLY! I finally got an indoor space and it is wonderful! After the show yesterday, all I had to do was lock up and go! No more packing up all that stuff and unpacking.

The last days before Christmas!

WOW...I have been so busy the past few weeks. I look up and boom, its 11 days before Christmas. NO gifts have been purchased yet! YIKES...I'm glad I only have 3 grand babies to buy for! I will be doing a Vintage In December Show this weekend at The Old Red Lumberyard Junk Market in McKinney TX. I still have not set up! It is raining so I will have to work furiously tomorrow to get everything ready! This ain't my first rodeo, so at least I have a PLAN of ACTION! I hope all of my blog friends have done better than me getting your personal Christmas shopping done! At least my customers have all of their shopping DONE!

Cute & Creative Linky Party #5

WHITE wonders!

These 2 antique beds have classic beauty! I painted them and distressed them to highlight the beautiful details! The first one, came from a couple who were cleaning out their garage! My husband was driving by, and thought they were have a garage sale. They laughed and said no, we are just cleaning out our garage, however, if you want this bed, make us an offer!  So he jumped out of the truck, offered them $50 and brough it home to me! Have I ever told you I would rather have JUNK than Diamonds, or Roses?  The 1940's style bed came from Craigs list! When I first started checking out Craigs List, my husband thought I was having an affair with a guy named Craig! LOL, just kidding! If thats the case, he thinks I have something going on with "Michael" "Ross" "Marshall"  & "TJ" too!

Broken top...

1940's style!

Today's multi projects!

Well, Dumpster Diva and my Dumpster Dude have been working ALL DAY! We really need more hours in a day!
The first thing is an ottoman/bench! We painted, distressed and recovered it in this FANTABULOUS FABRIC!

 THEN we started on my dining table and 6 chairs...we actually painted it a few days ago, today we started on the seat covers! I scored this set for $110 at a garage sale! It has 3 leafs and 6 chairs!

 Then off to start and FINISH this dresser for a client! We sanded and restained it! Sorry my pictures stink, but you can see the difference! The first picture is after we sanded the top.

Well...That's about all we could cram in to one day, so off to bed, and start over again tomorrow!

Ready or Not....

Ready or it comes... Christmas is right around the corner! I have started making ornaments for my next show (November 25-26 at The Old Red Lumberyard in McKinney Tx) As I was working on some things, I had a piece of garland left over. Not enough to do much with, so I made a "Christmas nest"!
