Fall has arrived at the Shops at 25 West

We have a small display area at the shops just as you get off the elevator. September is my month. I thought it would be great to make it all fall.. Halloween and Thanksgiving inspired.

We made it home Wednesday. We had a GREAT time. Lots of visiting, sightseeing and of course junking. Our computer died while we were gone so that caused a little delay in posting. Enjoy some random photos from our vacation, in no particular order. I will be sharing some of the "treasures" I brought home soon.

Tea Time

Wouldn't this make a great tray to serve tea and cookies on?

Dresser Redo

Remember this amazing FREE dresser?
Well I finally got around to painting it. It came out great and for now it sits in my kitchen.

I debated on using new handles, but I decided to paint the old ones black. I think they look great. I can't believe summer is almost over, it went so fast and soon I will be stuck inside painting furniture. :(

Have a great day!

Have a great Monday!

Door Love

I found these amazing doors stashed away in a barn...
The small one will make a great chalkboard...I may take out the window part of the larger one and add some decorative painting. I have so many ideas.
A last but not least, I am so in love with these french doors...they are in perfect condition just very dirty. Should I alter them, leave as it...what do you all think?

It's finally summer here...gonna go outside and play. Have a great Saturday!

Somtimes Timing is EVERYTHING

I got a call on Sunday that there was someone looking to buy the rooster window, but it wasn't in my booth anymore. They had thought maybe I brought it home. I hadn't, it had sold. I didn't get a chance to speak with the person looking for the window, so if you took my card and happen to be reading this post...send me an email I can make you one if you like.
Since I knew I had a blank space I took down this window I had just finished on Saturday. (I must have sensed it was going to sell) While there I met Carol who loves my signs and wanted something extra special made for her home.
After speaking with her we came up with this amazing sign. She wanted something substantial that would fill up a blank space. Below is the sign with the saying...BREATHE, Open to the wellspring of love within you. Great saying I know.

Carol also bought the Chateau Window for her home. She is promising me pictures of where she uses these. So as soon as I get them I will be sure to post them. It is always nice to see how someone uses the things you have created. This weekend, everything just fell into place at the right time. LOVE THAT!

Window Love

I have been using up some of the many windows I have...

Kayla and Luna snuck into this shot.

I just love old windows, even just to hand on wall, but these look pretty special too. Have a great Tuesday!

Painted side Table

Remember the adorable little girls table I painted for the Shops? It sold today! WOO HOO, so to replace it I painted up this little side table. It is not black and white, can you believe it? I am pleased with it, I like the brown, white and turquoise together.

I also put this little thing together...very simple, an old bottle and frame and a little paint.

I picked up this little beauty at a garage sale. It just needs a fresh coat of paint and a good airing out as it has a bit of an odor inside. The lady said is use to be a record holder

See how the shelves pull out? I thought it would make a great scrapbook paper holder, what else could I use it for?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Transformed Curb Find

I picked this little chest off the curb a few weeks ago. It had potential. The whole chest was covered in padding, fabric and furniture tacks. I am sure it was very trendy in its day, maybe?

All stripped down and ready for some paint....

I forgot to take a picture BEFORE I put in my booth. But I think you can still see the transformation. A scroll design on top and of course a diamond design. I should have taken a close up, but there is a heart shaped lock with a key hole and I hung an old skeleton key from it. (decorative) There is a glass knob to open and closed the lid. Defiantly one of a kind! I think it would make a great chest for the foot of your bed or a coffee table. Decorative with storage!

I also rearranged a bit, mainly the window sill.

Hope everyone is having a great Day!

Great Curbside Find

It needs some TLC...I broke the shelves stuffing it in my little car. I couldn't pass this up! Nothing that Chris can't put back together. I think it will look great painted a nice creamy white.
Look at the sides and the bottom section with baskets for storage. I have big plans!
