I'll Be Along Shortly

I have a lot to blog about,

like all the items I've been working on for the vintage warehouse opening.

Like, what a fabulous weekend it turned out to be for the Grand Opening of The Vintage Warehouse.

Like ,the blogger (Rustic Loves poppy) that drove for hours to stop in to see us and then blogged about The Vintage Warehouse.

Like, how much fun we all had working together this weekend.

Like, all the pictures of items I wanted to show you before it sold.

Ok, enought with the like, I sound like a valley girl, those of you form the 80"s know what I'm talking about.

You get my point right.

I've been soooooo busy getting ready for the Vintage Warehouse Opening, then working it, now getting ready for the next one, along with all the things a wife & mom has to do on a daily base. I'm tried thinking about it.

So with all that bla bla bla said I'll be along soon.. hold on it's coming...really, maybe tomorrow, oh thats right I have that to do tomorrow, maybe Thursday..

Oak Farm Table & Fixins

Here it is, my new 6 foot long, oak farm table..

Well that is what you can see of it..




This is a little better pic of the table..

I stained the top in a dark walnut and painted the base, I added 6 white chairs to it, I just didn't get a pic of them.



Hope all has a fabulous weekend...

Pretty In Pink

Here she is, a vintage record cabinet.


I have been painting furniture white for about 11 years now and when I see a vintage piece of furniture that was stained with an old cherry stain I don't even try to paint it white anymore. When painting a piece like that white the cheery bleeds through and the furniture ends up pink, I have not found a primer as of yet that will seal in the stain.


I have to say, she looks pretty in pink!



What a great cabinet to store your scrapbooking paper in.



I almost always paint the inside of a cabinet, I was not up for the challenge for this one.

The back of the cabinet would of had to been removed and all the shelves taken out. I almost did it when I looked behind me in the work shop and seen one hundred and one projects awaiting me.

Besides she is beautiful inside and out.
