Junk Finds and Painted Containers

Hey!  Hope you're having a great Friday; are you having big plans for the weekend?  Projects?  Maybe just some quiet time?  I'm planning on painting and working ahead on some Easter projects for the booths.

This is our very special Valentine in the framed picture!

~~found 3 red books and s/p birdies in pure white to make my Valentine decor complete;  Yep~~this is it.
Hope you don't think I went "overboard"~~~

~~a cute (probably reproduction) metal laundry sign and two ironstone platters~~

~~this adorable wooden bunny basket (getting a white paint job this weekend)~~

~~I'm thinking of adding a large wood trim work around this cute sign~~

~~and I found another wooden cheese container on the very, very cheap~~and some eggs to decorate with~~

~~I painted up one of the biggest wooden containers this week and added a stencil to the front~~

Here's the result~~and going to the booths today.  It's only going to be 17 degrees out; so I'm getting it done and getting back inside; even our pups get their "business" done a lot quicker during this terribly cold weather!

I love it when you stop by; tell me what you're up to these days~~hope you have a fabulous weekend!

ReStore Remake $5.00 Chair

I've been putting off some of my older projects for too long; this 1980's desk chair was bought for 5.00 last year (or year before??)~~

Below in the background you can see the 'before' picture~~

I used some home~made chalk paint which really bonds so well over the metal portion on the bottom.

~~and my buddy had to be in the picture at one point; the look you are seeing from him is my telling him "don't even think about it"~~he was sizing up the chair.   

It's barely above zero here today; but, tomorrow "heat wave" possibly up in the 20's so will take the chair and other items to the booths~~I really want to go today!

I used some left over chevron fabric and added a purchased  pillow to match for back comfort~~

Oh~~had to show you my old drawer project~~painted her white with a partial stencil to both sides~~cut some little square "feet" and screwed in from the top~~

I "was" going to sell this also; but love it so much I decided to keep it awhile~~~

Tomorrow will post my junk pickings from a few days ago;  

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day and many blessings!  ~patty~

Here's a lovely party to join~~
