My youngest daughter found a jewelry holder on Etsy that she wanted to order and emailed me the photo. I told her WE could make one just like it, or maybe even better.
I had an old window frame from a garage sale that I had purchased for 50 cents. The size was great.
My daughter gave the frame a couple of coats of Fusion Mineral Paint in Casement.
When I saw this item at the local thrift shop, I wasn't exactly sure what it was. The store clerk said she thought it was a homemade noodle dryer. I agreed it was used for food because the dowels where a bit oily feeling.
I washed it down good with some hot water and Dawn dish soap to remove the grease.
September 1st, I joined the gals at No Place Like Home Again, a shop with antiques, collectibles, home decor, antique furniture, up-cycled and re-purposed furniture and decor items, new items, garden junk, jewelry, and ladies' wear. Like I said in the title to this post, there is something for everyone!
I hope to update you from time to time with unique items added at the shop. Today I am going to share some photos of some of the other partners' rooms.
The first room belongs to Chris. Chris is a fabulous decorator and furniture painter. This sweet little desk painted in grays, and black with a whitewashed top has stenciled fleur de lis in the corners. The matching chair has a fun fabric seat and is the perfect compliment to the desk.
I have been kicking around the idea of renting selling space at a local antique/consignment shop called No Place Like Home Again for over a year now. The rent was quite reasonable but I was always reluctant to commit to working at the store 3-4 days per month in addition to my regular employment, blogging, flower gardening and trying to keep a clean house.
I finally took the plunge September 1st.
As I was setting up my sales space, I was reminiscing about some of my past projects. (These are by far not all of them, just the first batch to arrive at the shop) I will also be selling off some of seasonal decorations and collectibles.
Do you remember my vintage Jello mold pumpkins, pig napkin holder or the thrift shop breadbox makeover?
