I’m Published!

16 Nov

Remember that old filing cabinet I was working on in the Summer?  Here is a reminder of what it looked like before…

And here is what it looks like now!

This project has been done for quite some time now, but I’ve been holding off posting pics because…….I’ve been invited to have a regular column in Bread n’  Molasses magazine!  I used the above cabinet as my first feature and didn’t feel right posting pics here until I knew the mag went to print.   For more details on its transformation, go to www.breadnmolasses.com and check out the online version of the magazine.  I’m on page 30, but be sure to browse the entire issue.

I’m a bit nervous, but mostly excited about this new venture!

Bargain Bin

Yesterday I went to a local rummage sale and thought I’d share a few pics of what I found.

I almost didn’t buy this wine rack.  I don’t know why, but for some reason I was undecided about getting it.  I grabbed it just as I was paying and they threw it in free of charge.  Bonus!

This lamp was actually given to me from my Mom.  She had arrived at the sale before me and thankfully, since she knew I was on the hunt for a new lamp, she snatched this one up.  Now to find a shade…..

I bought this at a friend’s yard sale yesterday morning on my way to work.  I think I’m going to take the frames off and paint it.  Silver or white?

This vintage tin is by far my favorite purchase of the day.  It was the first thing I picked up.  I simply love it!

I also bought a wooden picture frame, some glasses and a bag filled with plate hangers which I can’t wait to use.
