Yellow and Green Makeover

Do you remember these chairs?  Tete, I know you do. Sorry My Dad got all that paint off before I could stop him.  It was just falling off though.  

Here are the chairs sporting their new paint jobs!!! What fun spring bright colors.  Don't you just love a pop of color in the garden or patio?   Wait till you see how they look with the fun tablecloth I have to use at the barn sale.  I'm pairing them with another fun chair and some great new outside pitcher and glasses.  It's going to be hard work all this week to get ready(sorry Ann it wasn't last week!).  I've got the shed and garage to still go thru.  Trying to pull items for all the holidays and make displays-I'll try and keep you updated!

Redone Table

Well here's the before....saved this table from the trash.  My dad put it back together. It was missing the middle part, but I thought what an awesome coffee table anyway.  It's a big one... 46x60 but what a great look.

Painted it white-and it came out amazing.  Will be listing it for sale and if it doesn't go this week-it will be for sale at the Ella Mae's Barn Sale this Saturday!  Or do I want to keep it!!!!

Primitive Doll Bed

Well, I've got to start thinking(and working) in the barn.  I'm not planning on having many barn sales this year.  Maybe only one big one.  I'm planning for March 31st.  Lots of work to do over there-plus, I need to start going thru the other out buildings.  Makes me tired just thinking of it.  Plus I need to decide what to keep and what will go.  I'm not into primitives-but this little doll bed is sooooo cute!

Vintage Plastic Santa's

Well, I'm getting ready for my barn sale the end of the month and I've decided to put out a Christmas section(I know but some people collect Christmas all year!).  I've posted it on facebook and already had some response.  I saw a picture in a magazine some years back where they used vintage tartan picnic baskets, so I'm planning on doing a display with what's left after the facebook sales for the barn sale!!! 
I think I need to change my background too!!!!

Life Is For the Birds

I'm seeing bird items around-can't decide whether to sell or keep!  It's that time of the year when you see them everywhere!  

Really makes me think about the scripture in the bible that states that if God takes care of the birds-he'll take care of us!  I keep leaning on that!

Christmas Screen

I've been wanting to find a screen to do a special project for some time. I had a black one, but wanted a white or green-then I found this one.

And this is what I plan to do ....maybe next Christmas-then I won't be able to say I didn't put up a Christmas tree!

Some garden items I'm selling!

A rusty old metal chair-I love the patina and unusual style!

 Watering Cans of course-my favorite-the smaller ones-harder to find-great for displaying with children's items!
 More metal chairs-and a kid's picnic table-would look great in a yard-even with out kids-how fun to display with!
 My BF Tete thought this chair would look great with the bottom taken out and an enamelware bowl in it for a plant or a birdbath!
 Another stand for a birdbath or plant! Love the aqua color!
 Not sure what a person could do with these?  I'd hang them on the wall inside to put other things clipped on them!
 More metal chairs
 The cute little table-I just sold the windmill this week!
 A nice table-those metal chairs would look great around!
And last, but not least-a scrolly swingset-My Dad has two-so one is getting sold-I can think of many uses for this-Can you?

Here's our Bathroom

I didn't realize until after I took these pictures-how dark our bathroom is.  My sister in law a few years ago couldn't understand that-but I like the cozy little next feel instead of everything white and sterile feel. 
 The paint and the wallpaper did make it quite a bit darker after looking back at before pictures-but I'm a wallpaper type of girl.  Two walls were painted because one was in the shower.  I am in the process of guilding the paint with gold.  Kind of makes it a tarnished effect and old looking(my husband says it looks dirty!) Anyway, this is his sink right out of his shower.  He got his towel bar installed and I tried to use some manly things to decorate in his area.
 I had wanted to put a huge mirror(I mean huge-it would have taken this whole wall up-and I'm still wanting to use it)-it is beautiful and ornate.  Would give us a little more light and reflection though.
 I have a collection of old nightgowns that I hang on the back of the bathroom door.  We also haven't moved in our old washstand that can be seen from previous posts.
 Here is my sink in the old dresser.  I still am needing to get globes for my sconces.

 I absolutely LOVE my tub.  I just can't wait to take a bath every nite!
 Here's the shower-blue marble-the closest to old fashioned we could get!

My Dad picked these up for yes-FREE!!! I'm not sure if we will leave them as is(the paint is really chipping off) or repaint...white or color...I don't know!

The Last Game of the Year

Yesterday I went to my nephew's last game of the season.  It's the only one I got to-but I was glad I got to see one! He did great out there-and he's awesome at rebounding!

I bought the Suitcase

 So it's not like I don't have over 20 old suitcases(I use them for storage), but for some reason, I just had to get this one.  I went back and forth-knowing I didn't need it.  Suitcases have been going like crazy here and I knew this one was different. I also know that it matches my new camper and might be fun to have for storage or to take and sell if I do the Brocton show this year!  And I'd also seen lots of ideas on pinterest-some of which I've shown before!

Wanna Go Shopping

I had to go back and pick up my pink Wringer Washing machine today and this is the wonderful shop(in Fairbury, IL-called the Antique Shoppe) I bought it from. Don't you just love her displays!

This is the kitchen area where she has her cash register area-I love the green color!

 I bought something from this picture-can you guess what it is?
