It was a busy weekend creating more fun signs and finding some great stuff!
I finally finished this sign-
And then had some really beautiful weather yesterday to finally start working on some of my bigger pieces!
I purchased a twin bed frame set a couple weeks ago, and got it sanded and primed. Here's the before of the foot board:
The knobs were missing on both pieces, so I added those on, and was pretty happy that they fit in so nicely.
Hannah was very interested in the power tools
(yaaay!! A girl after my own heart!)
so I let her have a go at using the palm sander. She did a great job.
Hmmmm.....maybe a mom and daughter business down the road???
I didn't quite get to my chairs yet- but I picked this one up over the weekend. The price was a steal!
The chair cover is even kind of cute, but my plan is to redo both seats in the same fabric.
(you can also see the coffee table in the background- the top is primed.
This was the piece I got before Christmas. Can't wait for this guy to be ready!)
My other thrifty finds over the weekend. I picked up this great little trophy goblet.
The inscription reads:
1st Place '77
I know all of you silver enthusiasts are cringing over the Tarn X. But I love this stuff. I remember watching the commercial as a little girl and just being utterly fascinated with how she cleaned the silver!
And you can just dip a coin in it and it's all shiny!!!
This stuff smells really bad- like perm solution. And after reading the directions, I am shocked that the lady in the commercial wasn't wearing any protective hand gear. Yikes!
I have to say I also really liked the pitch lady. Her little Southern lilt was hypnotizing.
Here's the commercial in all of it's 1970's glory:
Anyway, here's the polished up version of my piece:
And just a little sneak peek at some soon to be listed Etsy items:
|vintage mirror- marble base, with daisy shaft|
|United States Senate pewter cup|
|night stand carafe and etched glass|
And finally, my Market and French bakery sign that is nearly done. I still have some embellishing and distressing to do, but it should be finished up later today!
I love weekends!!
I hope you'll join me this Wednesday for my first linky party and show all of your transformations and treasures!
Have a great Monday!
