I found this dated little table on a tag sale facebook page...A bit bland, but I knew I could dress "her" up a bit with some pretty colors....

I was so excited the other day when I found this piece. It was large and heavy, but nothing stops me when I have a vision for a piece...So I snatched it up and brought it home.... HERE.... Have a great day!

About a week ago I found two old cabinet doors in a heap of junk pile at the end of a driveway where I got this dresser. They were huge and my first thought was to turn them into signs....They sat in my shed until today when I decided to tackle one. I used a saying that has been reeling in my head recently...."Absence Make the Heart Grow Fonder"....I drew the hearts on, penciled the letters in, then hand painted every last one...UGH! The final stage was distressing it to give it vintage appeal... HERE and HERE. For this project I was going with a bird theme. I know the bride to be loves vintage and nature, so I knew this would be the perfect combination. Although the project is a bit time consuming. The end result is always worth it!

The other day I found a listing on craigslist for the ugliest table and chairs from the 60's or 70's. I felt so bad for the pieces that I wanted to give them a new life.....

So, the other day I go to purchase an antique bed off craigslist. As I leave their VERY LONG driveway, I spy a big pile of wood and I guess "rubble"...I get out to take a quick glance, and what do you know....a perfectly good dresser in need of some brightening up...

We have all seen the new storage auction shows on TV...Well, my friends husband actually goes and does them. He was at an auction the other day. Unfortunately no one was bidding on the unit, so instead of the bidding going up, it went down and he got the unit for $25. He ended up with some silver, a brand new Coach handbag, and some other miscellaneous. There was a very big dining table in there that they didn't want...So guess who scavenged that baby up!! You've got it....ME!
