Another Makeover

The latest in a long line of makeovers for the booth. A Goodwill find. The attendant said a little old man brought it in. I wonder if it was his or his children's dresser because it's a petite little thing, fit for a child.

It was terribly scratched and nicked up. I sanded it with my trusty mouse sander.

Isn't it amazing what some paint and new hardware can do!


I think this is my favorite so far. I think I say that every time. Hmmm...

Some new treasures moving to the both for Fall. The more rust the better!

The roasting pans and pots will hold mums and asters and the fruit basket will be stocked with apples for our Harvest Night Sale. I still have lots to do to pull everything together and I have a little Man Cub running around. At least he's cute to look at, even if he IS trouble!

I do hope you are all having a fantabulous week!

A sale coming up? How fun is that but such work to prepare!

The chest has new life thanks to Sares. Long may it bring pleasure to someone dear.

I'm going down to my booth next week to fluff and stuff some more stuff in it!

Looks great Sares! You do such an amazing job w/the repaints. I just don't have the patience for it! :-) I still have the cute little end table to paint, hopefully one night next week after work.
Can't wait to see you in October. Save some room for my stuff (it's mostly smalls, thank goodness!)

Love how that turned out! And those slighted rusted things are fab. Love to see mums and things in well loved things.

Wow, how do you do all of these things, Sareski??

It's like you live in your own world full of pots and pans and wooden benches and mirrors and these are all your tools, you take them, you create things with them, and you make the world a lot more beautiful!
