Garage Sale Finds

Hello bloggers.
Its nice to see you again. As the Summer continues so does all the garage sales here in Ohio. A few weeks ago I stopped in a garage sale and walked out with all this stuff for $4.00. I was so happy since I use baskets for my kitchen, garden and office. I plan to spray paint the baskets to match my decor and the birdhouse needs a touch of fresh paint and a new look. Take a peek of the before pictured items...soon you will see what I do with them. 

1. A medium laundry basket...its lovely and very sturdy.


2. A nice round basket


3.  A heavy wicker heart for the door.


4. A very nice white basket.


5. A birdhouse for the garden.

Girly Hats From the Forties

I am a girly girl...I love hats and for the past 10 years I have been collecting hats from the forties. I have mostly black hats but I also have colored ones, some with feathers, some with flowers and many of them with their original forties gems. I change them around the apt. to give each room a unique character, its a decorative jewelry with visual art. Take a peek at just a few of them and tell me what you think?

First Stage, Dresser Makeover

My Shabby Chic bedroom is slowly coming along. The dresser got the first stage of its transformation. 

Before


After

This dresser has been sanded well, primed and painted a soft creamy yellow in a satin finish to prepare it for its next stage. The second stage will have the doors hand painted to go with my shabby chic design. The third stage is to age it and make it look old and vintage.


So stay tune, a new dresser will appear in a few weeks.
