Here are a few of my weekend finds. See the chandelier, I immediately saw a candelabra. With some help from my son, he removed all the wiring

Some black spray paint, I have this... I just need to get some candles. How amazing would this be outside over a table on a summer evening.

The Zienos Custom Sign

I am loving the chocolate brown with cream writing sign. Very nice! This is a perfect gift for a housewarming party.

The same sweet girl who ordered this sign also gave m this awesome dresser! Thinking of giving it a nice coat of white paint. Thanks Trish!

Little Table

Isn't this the cutest little side table? I just love the legs and the details. She will make her debut at The Shops at 25 West on Wednesday.

Remember the old sewing base may father in law gave me? Well I kept it right out front of the house and added a hanging basket. It defiantly makes a statement as you walk up to our front door.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday evening.

I finally got around to painting our TV cabinet. I went with black, distressed it a bit and added glass knobs. I finished up another sign...I keep seeing this Hotel sign in photographs all over the Internet. I really liked it so I painted my own.

See that huge picture? I picked that up at a garage sale for$5.00. The frame was originally gold, not my taste so I painted it black of course. It has great detail on the frame, the picture may change.

Enjoy you evening!

French Feel

I cannot find my "before" picture of this cute little chair. It was already white so I added a little French Flair.

I also painted this old cutting board with a whimsical topiary. I may change the ribbon to black and white. What do you think?

Good Morning!

We were up early this morning as my oldest daughter and her friend ran the Utica Boilermaker 5K this morning. They did a great job and finished in approx. 31 minutes. Great Job Girls!

Remember these cute little children's chairs?

I found a table to go with them. A little paint and distressing...

Aren't they the cutest?!?

Some frames, a key and a basket

Some wire baskets and a cute round table.

Hope you all found some treasures today as well!

Making a list, checking it twice...

No Santa IS NOT coming to town but my father is next weekend and then my brother and his family the following weekend. So needless to say I will be busy this weekend getting ready. Here is a copy of "The List" that I am sure will get bigger. Nothing like having house guests to get your butt in gear and do all the things you have been meaning to get to.

Custom Sign

I finished up this custom double sided sign. This side says Merry Christmas from the Taylor's. It is hard to read my photography skills are not the best.

And the other side, you can read this better.

Makes a great shower gift!

Curb Alert

I picked up this awesome table right off the curb. I know can you believe it? I am seeing a bench for the garden, replace the glass with some wood and maybe a little decorative painting, what do you all think?
My father in law dropped of this old sewing table base. Very nice of him! I vision a plant stand.

Sorry for the poor picture quality, I took the photos on my way out the door to work. Have a great day!
