Kitchen Cabinet

Love this old time kitchen cabinet. Tall and narrow.
The cabinet was in great condition just needed a little Annie Sloan. Arles with Old White and Antibes Green with Old white.
Graphite for the Chalkboard.
 Lots of great storage.
Love the red with the Antibes Green.

Sharing with a few of my blog friends. Happy weekend!

Burlap Wreaths

I love to paint but sewing is my first love. I love how these burlap wreaths turn out. So easy.
 I use a vintage wooden hanger for the wreath to hang . Simply tie on back with strips of burlap.
Just love these wreaths. These and many more beauties traveling to the Festival of the Little Hills in August.
Be back with more furniture later this week.

Metal Locker

Found this old trunk at the flea market, nobody wanted it as it had the bottom about rusted off. I took the chance that my best buddy could fixer right up. If you remember I did a old trunk a while back for a client and it turn out wonderful. This trunk was completely made different. No wood, basically a metal locker.
Yup, this is my best buddy taking the time to help a gal out. The trunk is in the background, only picture I could find before. My buddy cut a new bottom out of 1x3 and attached to bottom. All the leather handles were still there in good shape on this metal trunk. I got busy with my paintbrush and Annie Sloan Old White.
 Love my Annie Sloan as you can use this paint on anything. I use very little clear wax, just a quick brush and let dry and wipe off. Then the fun part, mix dark wax with odorless mineral spirits. Brush the dark wax mixture on and wipe. So simple.
The inside was another story. Remember the bottom inside was rusted thru.
 Mod podge the inside with vintage sheets of tissue paper. So pretty.
The trunk is small and low perfect for blankets and quilts. Added the wheels on the bottom for height.
Love how the metal rivets look with the dark mineral spirit wax.
 This and many more beautiful furniture is traveling to The Festival of the Little Hills in St. Charles, Mo.
August 17,18 and 19.  As always sharing with a few of my blog friends.

Weekend Fun.

This past weekend was a fun one. I went to the races and found the greatest old junk store, pickers dream!!!
Many times I pass this place and it was closed. We usually drive our motor home but this year we decided to drive and stay in a hotel. Our drive by sat morning and this gentleman was open! I know it does not look like much but the inside was full, all those buildings down the sidewalk. This guy was so much fun, all the stories he told of his customers from all over. I did get a few small things as we had our car but next time by I will have my truck!
 I don`t have many pictures of myself as I am always the one taking them. I ask my racing buddy to take a picture of me at the track.
Yes this is me, Anne. I was so excited that day after leaving pickers dream warehouse and then to my favorite sport, sprint car racing. If any of you have a guess of where I was leave me a comment. I will be back tomorrow with a whirlwind make over.

Provence Proud

Found this old table a few weeks ago and knew instantly what color. Isn`t it funny how you can look at a piece of furniture and just know. Cannot find my before pictures unfortunately, so.... Provence proud with a little Emperor`s Silk.
As you know by now I love Annie Sloan dark wax, just made this table pop!
Love the Emperor`s silk with a little of the wood showing thru.
Love this table. Farmhouse fun. This table will be going to the Festival of the Little Hills in August.
I can hardly wait as I have many beautiful pieces to bring.
Sharing with some of my blog friends.
Thanks for stopping by and always love your comments.
