I hope everyone is doing well! We are almost there...the weekend!! :) I have been busy continuing to put the house back together after painting. And yesterday I worked on my entryway. I love to decorate for the 4th of July and thought I would get the few things out that I have so that we could enjoy them..as well as a few "new" old things! I got the red clock on the table from Goodwill for $3.99 (it still had the original $42.00 price tag on it) I was so excited! And the table I got at an antique shop for $20! I couldn't wait to get home and refinish it...so I started on it pretty much right away~
The candle holders on the left hand side were ones I got from Kohls a while back..they were a shiny dark brown. I painted them red, sanded/distressed them and used a dark walnut stain. The bowl on the right was my Goodwill bowl for a $1.00! I used the same technique on that as I did the candle holders. The star I also covered with dark walnut stain....it was a bright white. If you couldn't already tell I am addicted to dark walnut stain and the color black!! LOL!! :)
No honestly I am having SO much fun taking someone's cast offs and turning them into something I can display in my home. And when you can do it anywhere from $1.00-$20.00....in this economy I say that's PERFECT!!
Here is a bowl rack that I got at the antique mall... I just tucked a little flag in it~
This is in an effort to hide all of the phone cords, outlets and plug ins...I wish we didn't have to have them but we do...so camoflauge them as best we can~
This is a Salvation Army find for $4.00. I put some dark walnut stain over the whole thing to give it a more aged look~
Next I think I am going to do a little Americana display on my doughboard~ I am having way too much fun! :)
Here is an updated picture of the shelf above our deck doors.....I am pretty sure this shelf is saying leave me alone already! I was going to do just crocks on it but then I stuck my bunny up there and I kind of liked it....I am sure it won't stay this way either! Maybe it is too blah~ Oh goodness I make myself crazy! Haha!
Have a wonderful weekend!! Thank you to everyone for leaving such sweet comments and entering my giveaway! Stay tuned~ I will be announcing the winner on Monday June 1st!! :)
Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
