I LOVE MONDAYS! Do you? A fresh beginning with a brand new week!
~VINTAGE DROP TABLE~
Over the weekend I spent most of my time finishing up several special orders and then base painted a ton of new merchandise.
~SIDES FOLDED DOWN~
Today I'm going to show you just what took all my time and energy. Good thing I didn't go junquing with my Mr. AGPMan!!! I had enough things to keep me busy without piling any other neat stuff into my already FULL shed!
(Destined for Hand Painted Roses!)
~VINTAGE HORN O' PLENTY~
I love this old wicker Horn O' Plenty! Someone had painted it gold (ick) and I repainted it with a soft antique white. You can't hardly find this style anymore. This one has that great curled end! LOVE THAT! Perfect for welcoming Fall!
~GREAT SUNFLOWER PEDIMENT~
This sweet piece had been painted black. I painted it in the same antique white and then added a dark glaze to bring out the details. Loving this!
~GREAT WIRE FINDS~
I just can't pass up wire shoes or teapots. I use to sell these years ago in my brick and mortar store. I wonder if that company that manufactured them in still in biz! Anyone know???
~GREAT PICNIC BASKET~
This is a great old find. It's not truly VINTAGE...but close. I painted it ONLY because there was an ad/logo on the top for Cigarettes. :(
~GREAT METAL BASKET~
This metal basket had been a dark hunter green...maybe from the early 90's. Again...painted it with my favorite antique white paint and then added detailing with a dark glaze. Yum!
I loved this trio of glass jars. The lids are solid wood and also have been painted antique white. These will have soft pink roses painted on top!
~SWEET FLOWER POT HANGER~
Years ago when I managed CURRENT STATIONERS here in Oklahoma City we sold these flower pot hangers. This one belonged to my mom and when she moved she didn't have a place for it. So...of COURSE she gave it to MOI! :)
~WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?~
Last but not least here is a little LOVE for you! The original $20 sticker was still on the bottom of this LOVE sign! I sanded it down with my hand stander and then a new coat of paint! Love it the way it is!
Most all these things will be taken down to my booth space. Painted stuff (with and without roses) sells like hotcakes down there and it's so FUN to rearrange and play around in my tiny 8'x10' space! Later this afternoon I'll be working more on those two fold-up chairs I showed you last week! Almost done!
Hope your day is GREAT!
Love to you...
