How To Make An Antique Table Beautiful Again

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Good Morning….

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….

Is it ok to add frufru details to a shabby carpenters trunk?


How To Add Pizazz To A Flea Market Trunk Petticoat Junktion

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.

rusty bicycle wheel wreath or clock


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.
