~Some LATE Night Can't Sleep Makeovers~

Well whatta you do when you can't sleep?? I paint. I had brought this old little farm table home from my booth the other day, it had not sold so I decided to paint the top white to match it's chippy white legs. It had an ugly brown top, you can see pics of it in my previous blog photos of my booth at The Sleepy Poet. I think it turned out way better, can't wait to get it back in my booth today. The chippy white wicker basket and chippy shelf was one of this weeks thrifty finds, kinda matches the whole set up. If you see anything you just can't do with out, email me, it is all FOR SALE... *Green Box, SOLD*
Once again, I do a makeover and forget to take the before picture.... Just imagine Ugly Brown Box/tray. I got it from my friend Rachel, it was so cheap it was almost free!! Now add a coat of lime green paint, a little distressing and a coat of stain. As soon as my Hubby woke this morning it was sitting there waiting for him to do the handles, and Wa-La a perfect little distressted chippy piece for the booth, I LOVE it, I wish I could come across a million of these suckers..believe me I will be looking.
These are some of the weeks Thrifty finds, a little glass and silver always fit in nicely.
I love to do little Collage Prints, when I find the extra time... I have lost track of what that is these days!! I love to make them into greetings cards to sell in my booths, or make little framed treasures. I scan and save them to my photos file so I can print multiples for cards if needed!! I will be sharing more of them in future posts.

Thanks for stopping by, we are having a rainy Memorial Day here in the South, sounds like I may be able to catch me a nap today!!! Blessings, Janna

Great job on everything. I am loving that distressed green. The color is awesome....I also love to sell newer frames, but I put copies of old cabinet photos in mine. I love the color tones of them and they seem to compliment the frames...Have a great weekend...Hugzzz...Tiina...

I like going to junk stores and searching for old vintage stiff, that green table is nice. Once I got home from my junk store escapade and brought home a big bronze statue and some other good stuff.
