One of my bedrooms I could not figure out a way to put the remotes or a lamp by the bed, because the room is so small, and I do not have another nightstand. I remembered that I had all of these OLD crates sitting around, but I didn't like how low it was on the floor. I stationed it to the wall. It worked great! Now I have tons of old cans, tins, bottles,etc. and I am going to work on making an arrangement of some type to go beneath it, so that it doesn't look so empty.
We have had nothing but cold, rainy days, so I have spent the time working on my own home. I hung a new shelf, and added some new pieces I had from our family. Our walls are so full, I am now hanging things from our tin ceiling!! I had a friend over after church Sunday and she said it looked like Cracker Barrel. I don't know if that is a compliment or not. I think that they are so full of junk, you can't see it all!! Oh well, I love antiques!!!!!!!!

I have shown how I LOVE sharing my projects with my blog. Well, here is my latest one, and I love it so much, I have started another one just like it!! A farm table!!
It started very simple, and I was going to just stain it, and I was so displeased. I stained the top pecan, and the legs, red mahogany.
So, I painted the mahogany, and sanded over different parts of it to bring out the stain, to give a rough, aged look. I polyed the top with 3 coats to seal it.
I painted 4 different chairs, and added this give color. FINISHED!! I had a lot of fun with this project, and it is so easy. Just make sure and seal your work.

Is is summer time yet???? I am screaming to get out, and work on some beautiful items!! Every time I have a day planned, it rains or it is to cold! I did get a few things finished inside, so I wanted to share.
My Kitchen wall is now covered in antique cookie cutters, antique tins, and antique cooking utensils. Hope no one needs to borrow anything.
I had several postcards from my parents honeymoon, so I made a post card fan. And my dad, back in the 80's made some cedar domino's, and my mom's 1930's jewelry box. My husband made a barn wood shelf for me. Feel sorry for you if you sleep here and it falls.
This is the up thing! Laser pics on wood, rocks, glass, t-shirts, etc. They charge a huge amount, and it is so easy!!!!!! Just make sure you don't copy your pic backward.

You know, I thought that I was doing really good, and going to post for you all the wonderful things that I have made here in the last 2 days and bought today when I went flea marketing. Little did I know, I got on my blog, and noticed, I never posted a pic for you of the finished project "doggie bed"! I do apologize for this. I will take a picture of it first thing tomorrow, and put it in the column next to us here. Let me share with you some great photos that are what I consider some never pass ups at flea markets when you are out and around.
