I managed to get this cute little headboard…..
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while…..

Cut it in half…
Cut it’s seat…
Cut a back leg…and braced it….
Cut an apron….
Painted it….
Painted the word….
Aged it…..
Waxed it….

Wow….I guess I didn’t realize how much I DID do!
Off to the booth!!!

Love Y’all!

Recently I acquired this little drawer-less dresser.  I’m pretty sure anyone else would have thrown it out! lol…..but the pack rat here?…..NEVER!

I had to cut shelves for him….painted him turquoise…and washed him with blue.  He just needed a little more….so some fabric and upholstery tacks are just what the Deja Vue Dr. called for!

Would any of Y’all use him? I would!

Love Y’all!

Door Deux and a Preview!

After combing many allies and junk piles….I have located another chippy door! Actually this one was propped up against a person’s house….and had to be BEGGED….not picked! lol

 Anyway….here she is finished….this one….well….she needed a light….of course!

       

      Here she is in the booth!

Second order of business…….Not really a Preview….but a teaser!

When we bought this place….one of the most charming things about it to me was the little cottage that sits in my backyard….I have dreamed of fixing her up and making it a playhouse/guest room (upstairs)/craft/painting room (downstairs).  I got sick of waiting…and the process has begun!!! and this is a teaser of the first order of business….getting rid of the treturous stairs….fit into a too small space….were WAY too steep….and too narrow for my small foot!

 They had to be rebuilt turned…so that a more comfortable size would fit into the same space.  It couldn’t be any longer…because there is a window below right where it ends now….so this is what it looks like now!

Love Y’all
