No news on the house yet. Waiting patiently. (well, as patiently as possible!) I drove by for a peek on my way home from Stars the other day. What they are calling a ‘work shop’ is a small (probably 586′!) shed. But the shed DOES have electricity! It’ll work for storage. Just as I was about to peek into the garage (which is what would actually be used for my workshop) a car pulled up so I figured I better get outta there!) THANK YOU all for your prayers!
A very ‘plain Jane’ little night stand. Clean drawer. NO stickers. (bonus! I HATE scraping stickers off of furniture!) Needed minimal prep, just a little sanding before painting.
(sorry about the ‘sun streak! It’s been SIXTY degrees and SUNNY here in Oregon!?!?! Crazy GREAT weather!)
OOPS! I missed that little part under the drawer! I was thinking that the drawer covered it! (I did go back and paint that strip after I saw the picture!) I painted the entire piece a ‘putty’ hued white paint and lightly distressed.
An amber colored (repro!) crystal knob for the drawer.
The drawer was perfectly clean and did nit NEED to be lined; but this piece of scrapbook paper just added a little ‘special touch’ since it’s such a simple piece.
Speaking of KNOBS! Check out these beauties I found at Ross recently.
As I am often inclined to do with my made over pieces, I painted the back of it. I do this PRIMARILY because oftentimes the backs of the furniture I put in my booth at the antique mall are visible in my display, and it just looks nicer. Sometimes the backs are just UGLY and NEED to be painted over. It’s also just a nice finishing touch and literally takes just a minute or two (with a roller!) and it just looks better! (and also I am a wee bit anal sometimes; but you already know that!)
This will be going to my booth in Stars soon.
The big antique show/sale at the Expo is going on this weekend, and that means Stars is having a SALE! The sale at Stars runs Thursday, March 5th – Sunday, March 8th.
50% off all regular priced items in my booth during the sale.
After the sale ends on the 8th, I will be doing a MAJOR booth overhaul!
