Hello Friends :-) What a way to end my staycation but to spend it in the garage. :-) We have been creating up a storm. Why you may ask? Well, as of the end of August I will be closing my booth at the flea market. There are many reasons why, but I can't and won't compete with someone who buys Made in China stuff and can sell it very cheap as compared to my and my friends beautiful hand made items. I will not ask them to lower their prices just to compete. This person is moving into the flea market. That being said we will see how it goes in the month of August. If our sales don't decline I may reconsider. We will see. Anyway, back to creating. I'm trying to bust out a bunch of new items to get things selling in the booth. I need to whittle down my redo pile in case I do close for good.
So want to see what we've been working on today :-)
First, my beautiful make do light on my stoop to the left. Not sure how long the light will last as it's not rated for outdoors. lol. May have to find something else.
Next I keep seeing these fabulous candle holders in people's homes and after finding our pile of wood we made 4 of these. Of course I won't use them all.
Then, I tore apart something else to make this little make do candle holder. I think it needs a little taller candle as it looks empty at the top.
I prim'd up this fireboard finally. It is for sale everyone!!!!
Then Steve finished off my new GIANT shoo fly screen. I can't decorate with it yet it's still wet. I bought this as a close out from Target last year. It was a bright red with a white knob. We painted it with spray paint that has a "hammered" appearance.
I have more items in process in the garage. I won't be able to finish them until the coming week on my days off.
A little make do chair. I will be covering the back and seat with fabric. I will NOT be leaving the heart. lol
This little soap and cup holder...
And of course my make do apothecary is going to finally be finished. I'm waiting for the paint to dry tonight to work a little more on it. I think I'm going to leave the drawers as is and only paint the outside.
I also painted up another shelf to go to the booth this week. Shew... I'm tired!!!! lol. I, of course, will show you progress as it is made. Thanks for visiting see you again this week.
