Embellished Bottles

I just completed these two embellished bottles.  They were so fun to do.  I pulled from my stash of vintage laces, images and jewelry findings.  I really need to use this stuff to get my inventory down..

Farmhouse Style Storage Box

My latest project is a vintage wood box upcycle. I painted the box, then distressed it slightly.  I decoupaged it with pretty farmhouse style papers and the cow image from The Graphics Fairy.  The box was then sealed with spray sealer and the metal knob added to the top.  Use it to store your vintage findings, trinkets, charger cords, whatever you like.  I am adding it to my Etsy shop.

Latest Find - A Vintage Doll Bed

This wooden dollbed has the most wonderful chippy blue-green paint. I discovered it in a disassembled pile. All pieces were there except for the wooden slat as a base for a mattress, which my husband cut out and put in place, then added screws.

Yard Sale Find BEFORE & AFTER, Plus, a fabulous giveaway at Bella Rosa Antiques

I wanted to post about a great giveaway at Bella Rosa Antiques - Jillian is celebrating her shop's 5-year anniversary.  Giveaway is through June 7th, so hurry on over!

Here is a yard sale find from this past weekend, a cute wooden chair that I wanted to spruce up to place in my flower garden.  I painted it using chalk paint in an emerald green, then added a bit of Martha Stewart's Black Coffee antique stain.  I like how it turned out.

French Label Vanity Tray

I am waaaaay behind in blogging, but between "junking", upcycling, listing items in my Etsy shop, and Pinterest, having a high school senior in the house, not to mention the normal must-do stuff around the house, that doesn't leave a whole lot of time. Anywaze.....here's my latest upcycle project, a wood picture frame turned into a vanity tray. I added metal handles, lace under glass and the French label image from Graphics Fairy. I distressed the frame and handles slightly. It fits right into a Paris Apartment or French Chic decor.
