Welcome

I have a passion for decorating, shopping flea markets, garage sales, and crafting. I have browsed and "creeped" many blogs and discover that I have something to share. So after weeks of trying to decide how to get a blog started I am finally here. I'm still learning about the technololgy part (not my strong suit)but I hope to post many pictures of my house before and after, my antique booth, and my ideas on decorating and crafting. I believe everyone deserves to live in a beautiful space and not break the budget to get it!! Looking forward to your feedback, talk to you soon.

Before and Afters

I purchased this side table at Goodwill years ago.  I painted the vines on it back in the 90's and they had to go.  What to do?? Decoupage!!  I used scrapbooking pages to cover the top and just left the rest crackle painted.  It looks like new!

Here is the final product.


Awe what a beauty!! I got this at auction and thought it looked old fashioned.

Here is the "after" .  So much better don't you think!  It's already sold, the lady is going to use it to hold her TV and all the components hidden away in the drawers.  So clever! 

I bought this piece from my friend Val.  She has the best junk!

I am keeping this one for my master bedroom.   I have to, I sold the furniture that was there!

I bought this nice little desk from GW.  It is in great shape except not really pretty.

Finished and in my booth.  Surprise, not white.  I love this taupe/grey color.  PS that is not a possum in the cage, it's a wooden rabbit. :)
I love looking at before and after pictures.  I hope you enjoyed mine.  I wanted to share some of the projects that I have been working on.  I am getting super busy since my pieces are selling quickly, I am busting my booty to keep my booths stocked. 

till next time
