First piece for purchase

Finally finished a piece worthy of selling!
Stripped, sanded and varnished the top. Used Annie Sloan Chalk paint on the body of it, and lined it with a Toile fabric. Love it!!

New old Shelves

So my mother bought my some old wrought iron brackets and old barn board for my birthday. My father was...thrilled... along with my husband (They just don't understand).

I used them to hang shelves about my doorways. One of them is finished and has lots of my old vintage goodies on display. I'm still trying to figure out what to put on the second one. All I have is my vintage sheet music (Which I got for free!!) and my husband's random tea pot.

Yesterday as well, I went to a store about 40 min to get some ASCP - which is near impossible to find in Canada, so when I found out about this little place I was thrilled. I went in and got to speaking with the owner, Michelle. She was living my dream - painting furniture, selling it in a little shop, living the life. Anyways, she said I could sell some of my pieces in her store!!! I'm soooo excited. This piece is going to be my first that I sell. We'll see how that goes. I'm going to work away at it this week.
