I’m amazed sometimes how the simplest projects can turn out so beautiful.
On my Furniture Inspiration Board I have a number of furniture makeovers that pair white paint with the furniture’s original wood finish.
I shared some of these gorgeous makeovers on Perfect Pairs, A Beautiful Wood Finish and A Complimentary Paint. You might want to check them out!
Last week at My Favorite Junk Shop I found a vintage oak dresser that’s perfect for this look.
Finally, I’ve been looking for a while.

I was working on a project for Salvage Saturday but it’s still in process.
The high humidity and rain today slowed the drying time on the finish.
So not dry…..not together…..no pictures.
Since I couldn’t put the finishing touches on the salvage project, I was playing with my pom pom fringe.
I love pom pom fringe
How about you?
Anytime I go to an estate sale, antique shop, flea market, etc., I look for pom pom fringe.
Every once in a while I use fringe in a project, but not lately.
I need to search pinterest for project ideas.
The turquoise and green fringe is my very favorite and at one time I had about 10 yards of it and now I have about 8 inches left.
I plan to finish the salvage project before the weekend is over, hopefully it will dry by then.
I’ll share it on Tuesday or Wednesday because on Monday I have a furniture reveal!
Have a great weekend,

I was having junkin’ withdrawal today (that sounds bad doesn’t it). Ya’ll know what kind of junkin’ I do. It involves a lot of rust, chippy paint, and battered furniture.
Anyway, I left work in Nashville, drove home to Clarksville, changed vehicles, and then drove to Hopkinsville, Ky to My Favorite Junk Shop.
It’s been a long day.
I had to start with this picture instead of the usual view of the junk shop. Isn’t this gate awesome!
I looked at the tag and almost had a heart attack, $175.00!!!
I was shocked at the price because the prices here are extremely fair…. really inexpensive….. almost giveaway prices.
You get my point, right?
It’s a great gate but I can’t pay those prices.

I have to say this is one of the easiest craft projects I’ve attempted.
A rag garland in neutral colors.
The light colored garland really pops against the turquoise door.
