I am married to one of the worlds nicest men, but he has no understanding of the word junk. If he doesn't see a use for it, it must be junk. Sometimes I see something, pick it up and it ends up in the garage for use later. Maybe I have no idea what I will do with it, but it's a treasure, and it's mine!! Now don't get me wrong, my man is wonderful, but when he wants to clean and clear out the garage, he means everything he sees as not useful.....:( This is why it was time to finally do something with these two items I found. You know how it goes, out of site, out of mind. That is what happened here.
The above piece is something I found (I have no idea where, when or how) but I had to have it. I think it had a mirror in the center, but I didn't like that. This was a frame, I added knobs to the bottom and a chalkboard in the middle. So shabby and cute I think. I added some crackle, messed it up a bit and it's going in my etsy shop.
This was a cupboard door in it's earlier life. I love beadboard and would like to have it all through my home some day. I painted this a creamy, cottage white, added knobs and some lovely resin floral work to the top and sides.
