~Ahh... Makeovers, Lookie at the Cabinet Now~

~LOTS OF NEW ITEMS ON THEIR WAY TO THE SLEEPY POET AT THE END OF THIS WEEK... I have had a busy week with my 9-5 day job and have fallen a little behind , I promise lots more GREAT CHIPPY SHABBY goods are on the way!!!~
Well I have been busy as a wild goose this past weekend.... Remember the turquoise Cupboard from my previous post, the one caked in paint?? Well look at her now, she came out perfect...All I had to do was a little sanding and look at the beauty that was underneath!!! I was so excited this morning that I was out sanding in my pajamas!! *Update, Turquoise Cabinet Sold, Yellow Pedestal Sold, Pink Winder Box Sold* .*Breadboxes SOLD*


I had a hard time today even trying to get it together.... I am so pooped from working all week and then junking all day yesterday, now I spent all afternoon at my booth, the day is gone, the weekend is gone...work day is back tomorrow.... I was only able to get a few things done and in the Sleepy Poet today...and you know it.....right when it was all done and priced I had a wonderful dealer from out of state pass through and clean out all the little things I just brought in!! I was so excited she stopped in, she was so sweet and kind so of course gave her a discount for a large purchase, gotta do that!!! So I will be heading back sometime this week with more of my junk, because alot of this pic is gone!!
Remember the chippy table makeover last week, it found its spot smack dab in the middle, perfect for my pendants!

Here are a few upclose pics of my Vintage Junk Pendants, I try to keep it fun and funky when I create these up!

I am guessing this is an old Pharmacy Shop Sign, I picked this up in Asheville a while back on one of my junkin trips.....I thought it was unique.

I had this ugly old brown bowl sitting in the Garage, you know the ones I am talking about, the ugly ones from the 1970's, oh yeah, the ones that are ewwwwh..thats the word I think of!! Well a little paint and chippying up and it turned out perfect!! I think I may should have did a coat of stain on it, I might have to nab it out and do that? ~Update, Glass cloche and base, SOLD~

Hopefully I will be able to get some more makeovers done this week, sometimes some sanding and painting is a good stress relief from a wild day at work!! So don't forget to check back in...Oh I almost forgot..... Of course I had to stop at the Thrift store on my way to my booth today...well I got a fabulous find!! I will post it sometime later this week for ya to see!! I really appreciate all the kind words and emails from everyone, it makes my day and gives me new inspiration!! Thanks a million. Have a great week, Now I am gonna go eat dinner that my patient hubby has cooked for me. He has been sooooo great by helping me out with all the little things the past few weeks, you know little things mean the most!! Blessings, Janna
