I'll start out with the bowl I bought over the weekend that I forgot to show you. It was actually a brighter blue and you know me... gotta prim it up and darken it. So I brought it home and used my trusty stain and here it is... I was just telling Steve I need a new bowl rack made... wink wink.
I have decided I am a hoarder... Yep you heard me and I am admitting it. I go to Goodwill, which by the way, I am now a preferred customer and have a card to prove it. LOL. For those who live in Wayne and Holmes county in Ohio you to can be a preferred customer. Just ask the cashier. You get 10% off your first purchase after signing up. Then they take your email and send you advance notice of sales and extra discounts that others don't get. Sorry I digress... LOL. HOARDER!!!!! I buy things at the Goodwill thinking "yea I could make this over" or "yeah I'll paint that" and then it sits for months. So I finally finished some items I bought.
First is this basket. It was one of those really cheap unfinished baskets. I think I paid a buck. A little brown and black spray paint and... Need to sort through my stuff to find something to go in it.
Next I did finish my $.35 tote. I really like it. A little brown and black paint with furniture wax on top. Looks old don't you think?
Last but not least... and now.... the almost finished new item Steve and I made... No we didn't use anything old... We still need to put the wire handle so that it can be hung. I actually have two of these. We are currently working on some other designs of these.
Without a flash...
With a flash...
I need to get moving and get some errands done so I can clean my house. Yep that includes the dining room table. LOL.
