As you can see Miss Bumby is on the scene - she is doing very well. Has gained weight, just still sounds a bit hoarse. This weekend she will get a visit from Darcy and Zeke - Bumby! Watch out!
I am getting ready for a Flea Market style booth at Art Angels, where my good friends Suebee and Kathy, have a booth. The store is opening the Flea Market event up to "others". "Others" being my other good friend, CG and me. We are going to try our hand at this business.
I have some wedding "stuff" I can sell as well as personal things I have collected, refurbished or inherited along the way.
Today I broke out my sander.
I think I went overboard "distressing" this lovely gate-leg table. It's not in it's finished stage, but tell me honestly. Is it too much? I know this stuff is in now, so I'm trying my best. It's fixable and as I said, I am new at this.
Two other victims of the sander were this cute little secretary desk. Simply sanded this and intend to paint and then "Shabby it up a bit". I think it will turn out well.
On to my son's old bunkbed ladder which I have been using as a book shelf in my bedroom.(click here to see old post about that!) I sanded it a bit - didn't want to paint it as I think the rustic wood looks nice. But did I sand it enough? Hmmm. It also needs some staining and waxing.
All three are in the infant stage, so any suggestions are welcome! No offense taken! Hey - and I also used chalkboard paint for the first time today. Let's see how those turn out - next post, perhaps.
Hope you have nice weekend weather. We are enjoying lower temps and NO RAIN. Very important after last weekend! Cheers!
