I hope everyone had a relaxing Labor Day weekend! There were no yard sales or estate sales to shop around here, but I had plenty of projects to occupy my time. I will be holding some of these items for the upcoming Christmas Open House in early November. Other projects will go straight to the booth. Tell me what you think.....
I found an old cutting board a few months ago. I also bought some cabinet handles at a local salvage store because I thought they would come in handy one day. I used dark walnut stain to darken it, applied a coat of paste wax and added the handles.
I picked up this luggage rack at an estate sale 2 years ago. It’s been patiently sitting in the garage waiting for repair.
Two wooden lantern bases I bought recently needed a little something extra. That something was a little paint. I dry-brushed red paint on the dark one, chalkpainted the flat one, waxed them and added a hurricane globe to each.
Lastly, a little fold-up camping stool needed some lovin’......
The leg from anold pair of jeans, plus a few special touches of embroidery…
And this little stool can “rough it” outdoors or "be cute" indoors….
Do you have a favorite?
