It’s Labor Day but we’re taking a trip to the Nashville Flea Market….enjoy!
I know, aren’t they the cutest. Wish I was in the market for vintage purple chairs …..the beauty shop kind with hair dryers…not today.
Wouldn’t they make a nice conversation piece. We could have really fun gossip sessions!

It’s Furniture Theme Thursday.
This month’s theme is “decoupage”.
Ah, the ideas are endless when talking decoupage.
Are ya’ll excited? I am!
A fun/artistic bunch of bloggers get together once a month to put this show on for you.
We work for days or weeks getting our themed furniture projects ready for the tour.

I have to tell you this one was a “beat my head against the wall” pain.

I’m heading to day 2 of Fall classes at APSU.
I can see it’s going to take a few days…or weeks….. for me to get some kind of schedule going.
I need to schedule painting and crafting time, class time, homework time, blogging time, home time!
Um, probably not scheduling works best for me.
I do have a makeover to share today….

It was an easy job to make this antique table beautiful again.

Is it ok to add frufru details to a shabby carpenters trunk?
I think so.
I added the wrought iron detail to this flea market find….a carpenters trunk.
Actually the detail is made out of plastic…not iron.
It’s also one of my thrifty finds.
I don’t remember where I got it or how much I paid for it.
I guarantee you the price was cheap.

You get a twofer today….two shopping trips to My Favorite Junk Shop….all rolled into one.
And you get a question….
Do I make a wreath, a clock, or something else out of the rusty bicycle wheel?
I’m thinking a Bicycle Wheel Wreath!
What do I do with the pedals or do I leave them on and make a different project?
I also got the two crates…one iron…and one wood.
