A Few Projects Finished And Other News

Whew! What a busy weekend. We had a wonderful family birthday, combining several of the grandchildren into one party. Cake and presents, lot's of family and a beautiful warm sunny day for the kids to play outside. In between shopping for gifts and going to the party, I was able to finish up some projects and get them ready to sell.
This little table has been sitting in my basement for a few months. A few coats of Krylon's Satin Black paint and she turns into a real beauty ready for a new home.
A little Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint on the old brass handle and it looks so much better.
I have had this beautiful ,sturdy,solid rocker for at least six months and I was originally going to keep it, but another chair has taken its place. I made this soft green chenille cushion to take the edge off of the hard seat.
And the most exciting thing I did was started moving into a booth at a new antique mall about a mile from the one I am already in. The new place is called Lone Elm Antiques for anyone in the Kansas City area. Let me know if you want more info. Here are a few pieces that I moved over from the other booth at Sentimental Journey.

This lovely ivory rocking chair.

A glass and brass coffee table that has been updated with ORB.

A cute litte trolley tea cart.

This great white ladder bookshelf.

And a vintage high chair with a fresh coat of paint.

I can't wait to show you pictures of the booth when it is complete.

Thanks for visiting!

  9. I have an end table just like the one you painted black. I painted it white years ago and I use it on our front porch. Hope your new site goes well.

  10. It's all good but the little black table is my fave. You really gave that a totally new look. Thanks for sharing on Motivated Monday at BeColorful.
    As for that tea cart it would be fun in an unexpected color like pink. Just a thought.

  11. Love the little black end table! It's amazing what a little paint can do! I'm a new follower :)
