|an old wooden frame to be repaired and painted, a great wooden tray and a rusty old sap bucket|
A couple of coats of creamy paint and a mod podge image of some lavender gives this old bucket some new life.
Found this old table on the side of the road. Yep, I've become ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE - not officially a picker, but certainly a hunter/gatherer. My husband will soon be afraid to go for a drive with me as he'll know there's an ulterior motive.
I'm keeping the tea cart for myself. I've always wanted a one and this was a steal from my friend, Bill. It needs some TLC, but will be great in our dining room with the antique silver tea service on top. The wooden box was free at a yard sale. Here's some of the other treasures I found at yard sales on Saturday.
Alan said that I should go in the house and get started in the kitchen while he unloaded the car. This is how he displayed all the pieces in the garage. I think he has retail merchandising in his blood! An old wooden ladder, some vintage tablecloths, a couple of large wicker baskets (free) and my wooden box collection which continues to grow. Everything you see here was less than $20 (not including the tea cart which I paid $20 for).
I did manage to finish a couple of projects including this wooden box which is a sister to the bee hive box:
So much to do to get things ready for the booth opening. Besides these projects, I need to invest in more items, create a logo and price tags, finalize the booth details, get some display items and signage made all while we're on vacation for the next two weeks. Why am I sitting here writing?
