Less than 3 weeks away from my first one day booth sale!! I have been keeping very busy turning trash to treasure, so to speak. I sure hope the booth goes well! It will really be a learning experience to see what sells and what generates interest.
I have been painting, waxing, sanding....
spay painting, stenciling, gluing....
making a general mess. My house hasn't been clean all Summer!!!
Even bike tires are not safe!!!
Of course a few pieces have played switcharoo and ended up in my house rather than for the sale. Not that this piece is tremendously interesting....but it has a ton of room. The top opens to a deep storage, and then the large drawer on the bottom. It replaced the pressed wood shoe holder and drawer set we had by the door. *shudder
I really like this piece but since I found the 1954 Lane cedar chest below curbside.....I decided to swap them out.
|This piece will be for sale|
|this piece is staying|
We also found a "new" table someone tossed at an apartment building. My daughter spotted it and stood guard until I could get there. It wasn't a special table....but since it is just my husband and I at home now it had a great feature that benefited us. It was smaller, perfect for 4, with a hidden leaf that expanded to 6, the size of our previous table.
Our other table had many years of use, still in good condition but not real desirable, I decided to hack it in pieces.
Ok, not so dramatic as that, we made two wall mount tables out of it that will go in my booth!
So I am keeping busy, busy, busy. I always have paint on my fingers, elbows, toes and hair. I dress like a total bum, forget to put make up on, and can not move in certain places in my house due to overcrowding of projects!!
Praying for a good sale! Lots more to show and tell so come back soon!!
ps...in case you missed it. One of my creations made Country Living's website!! See it HERE
