It’s Showtime {Blogland Tour}

It's Showtime graphic Petticoat Junktion

I was invited by my friend Lori of Vintage Charm Restored on a fun Blogland Tour.

I want to thank Lori for inviting me!

She is one of my very first blogging friends.

Her furniture is over-the-top gorgeous.

excerpt from Lori’s page…I am creating all things crafty and getting into projects with every DIY idea we can dream up.  I am a wife to the best husband and mother to four pretty awesome kiddos.  {I am that mom with kiddos in all stages from Senior in High School all the way down to my perky little four year old.] 

She does amazing things with French Provincial Furniture.

Don’t take my word for it…see for yourself.

Two of Lori’s projects that I simply drool over are  The Charming French Bedroom and  A Dixie French Provincial Dresser.

Be sure and visit her Facebook page for more inspiration.

Ok so for my part of the tour Lori gave me 4 questions to answer….here goes…


question 1….What am I working on

I’m working on a vanity and it’s giving me fits! Yes, I know….that’s normal for me.  I had a plan to paint it a really soft pink…I mean really soft.

I mixed the paint myself and put on two coats of paint. Then I decided the color was too bright. I started mixing again.  This is the piece before…

Junk Day!

I love taking you along on my pickin’ expeditions to My Favorite Junk Shop.

Enjoy the trip….

How about these two pieces.

The colors are great and they will probably still be those colors when I get through with them

I’m thinking of just distressing them a little more and giving them a wax job.

The Shop That Sara Built

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Today I’m taking you on a tour of the shop.

The one that Sara Built.

When I say she built it…I mean she purchased the shop a couple of years ago and did a major overhaul.

She added new vendors, did some advertising, started carrying a variety of furniture paints and products, and created a space for us to give paint workshops.

She greets everyone that comes into the shop with a smile on her face….except maybe me….sometimes.



You Never Know The Shop That Sara Built

This is Sara…see….she isn’t greeting me with a smile.

I don’t think she wanted me to take her picture Winking smile
