Two-step stool with DRAWER

A little DRAWER in a step stool?!?!?  I love that!

P1280307

This sweet little stool really didn’t ‘need’ to be made over at all . . . it was in perfect condition; but you know me!!!  I can never leave well enough alone!

I removed the drawer knob and gave the whole thing a good sanding.

Some aqua paint and more sanding to distress.  Another ‘perfect piece’ to use one of my little aqua ceramic rose knobs on!!

And off to my booth at Stars it goes!

Great little piece for adding height to displays in my booth (while it lasts!)

P1280481

How adorable is this box of vintage cocktail forks!?!?!  (Sorry about the glare!  I had to wrap the box in plastic wrap to be sure none of the forks ‘went missing’)

P1280688

Stop on by if you haven’t been at Stars in a while.  LOTS of new stuff in my booth  . . . and throughout the entire mall!

Ginormous cubby shelf!

I found this baby at the Habitat ReStore in Bend, while Michael and I were there for my son’s wedding in August.

P1220427I’m not sure why there are those two ‘double’ opening in the middle there!?!?!  I think perhaps it was designed for a specific purpose.  All the wood was very well sanded and ‘ready to paint’.  Just had to dust it off a bit.

P1220426It’s nearly 3 feet tall!  And that’s a LOT of cubbies to paint.  Thank goodness it came sans any backing; much easier to paint that way.
P1220787

Even without any backing, it took DAYS to get it painted.  I painted all the cubbies first, then added the painted backing.  A backing makes a HUGE difference.

P1220682Lots of room to display thing on it!

It is now in my booth at Stars;  $120.00.

Updated child size rocking chair

P1070446Remember the $1.00 rocking chair?

P1070806It had been (very POORLY!) spray painted turquoise over an original white finish.  I just HATE IT when people don’t repaint the UNDERSIDES of the rungs on stuff like this!  So anyhow it was a shiny paint finish so I needed to sand OR prime it to prep it for refinishing,  I chose to sand since the paint was cracking and peeling in several places.

P1070804And as I pondered my next step, I decided to ‘just go with it’ and leave the distressed turquoise and white.  I stenciled “IMAGINE” along the headrest.

P1070805Pretty quick and easy make over.

P1070807It’s in storage for now, until the next big ‘do-over’ in my booths.
