White & Grey Cedar Chifferobe

My husband always helps me when he can. He helps with the prep work, repairs, etc. However, I'm sort of a control freak and would never let him paint. That apparently threatened his pride just a little. 
So, after this chifferobe sat in our garage for MONTHS I finally told him to have at it. I already had everything picked out, all he had to do was paint.

 I did the the hinges, stenciling, and put on the hardware.


 I guess I'll promote him to painter :)

Here's the before:
ewwwwwey!

An Auburn'd Antique Dresser

I'm not like most people down here in Alabama when it comes to football. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy football season, but really it's a good excuse for me to spend time with my friends, fire up the grill, and maybe have a nice cold drink. The last football game I remember sitting through was in high school as a majorette. My allegiance, however, is with Alabama
I don't care what the quarter back's name is or who they are playing this week. I don't even care to watch most of the game. I'm just happy when they win. Especially when they win against Auburn... & when they win the National Championship 
(say that in a quiet, mumbling, not trying to rub it in voice =)

I know people that would lose friends over a football game.. much less paint a dresser with the rival teams colors and put their name on it.
 Good thing for the Marks family, I am not one of those people and when I was asked to do this piece I was more than excited (even though I'm a little partial to crimson and white).

Here are some before pics that Regina emailed to me for a quote:


It had gotten eaten up by something. Not quite sure what.

Here are a few progress pics:
(She needed a lot of Simply Salvaged love)

(after the 1st coat of paint...not bad, huh?)

 And after all of the love:



 Heavy distressing.
































Alabama fan or not, I'm happy to have my name stamped across this piece and I'm so thankful that Regina pulled it out and let me bring it back to life for her family to enjoy for many more years.

Thanks for reading!

For Keeps Sake.

I thought I would share some things I brought home this weekend.
These are not for sale.
March has been good to me so far!

-Some jars- 
My obsession with jars and bottles is slowly growing. 
In our living room, we have a floor to ceiling window corner that holds my collection. I love the way all the different colors look in the window pane

-Some canisters-
You can never have too many.
I scored both of these for $5

-Vintage Aluminum Tumblers- 
I had to have these. Had to.
I got the set for $15
I can't wait to put them in the kitchen with my vintage Pyrex set =D

That awesome stick was compliments of our Magnolia Tree =)


Happy Junkin!

Black & Grey Knee Desk

This was a custom order for Mandy.


 Is is odd that to love color so much, I'm very partial to black {& grey} but mostly just black in general.

In fact, black is my favorite color...
(I think only because it was so hard to chose between the rest of the colors)
But really, I love black.

  This was my 2nd order with these colors.

 

I can see why. =)
You can see the 1st order HERE


Here's the BEFORE:

Before and After {China Cabinet} {Inspiration}

This was a custom order for Ashley & Paul.

Here's the BEFORE:
 (I forgot to take my own before pic so I stole the one they emailed me for a quote.)

Here's the AFTER:

 I have a China cabinet very similar to this one...
I am now considering painting it. In fact, I may paint it yellow. 




I love working with them =) and they always pick fun colors!
You can see the last piece I painted for them HERE


Thanks for reading!!!

One thing I love more than the HUNT is the FIND.

I wanted to share some things I've acquired this week.

It's not very uncommon for me to find old windows. 
Over the past 4 months about 40 windows have come and gone. 
BUT last night I found these...
What's so special about them, you ask?
They date back to the late 1800s/ early 1900s.
What an awesome piece of history!!

This door was torn out of the same home the windows came from
(excuse my mess.)

...and some awesome old wooden crates.


I love my job.
Happy Junkin!
