My internet is finally back up and running. After hours on the phone, 3 different modems, and a tech out for an hour they finally changed a password and viola! it worked. Go figure. Why couldn’t they have tried that on Monday morning when I was on the phone with them the first time? Seriously. The tech didn’t do anything I hadn’t already done. Oh well, I’m just glad it’s back.
In the ‘down’ time I managed to get quite a few projects finished up for the Springfield flea market. One week from today we will be setting up there!! Woo-Hoo! I’m praying for clear skies and perfect temps 😀
This folding chair makeover was one of the projects I did this week.
Chalk Paint, wax, and some fun fabric make these so much cuter!
Here is the before. See the vinyl covered seat lying on the floor behind the chair? The gold vinyl was actually kind of cute in a vintage way, but one of them was torn. So they got covered and I love them this way! They will be going to the flea, and as much as I love them, I do hope they find a new home. I can’t keep everything and my husband is feeling overrun with chairs. I have a small obsession with chairs – I see a cute one that is cheap and I just can’t resist bringing it home for a makeover.
The after is so much better don’t you think?
The following photos are some sneak peeks of some other projects I worked on today —-
Think it’s crazy that I did all those in one day? Here is what I DIDN’T do – laundry, cooking, cleaning, school. And I didn’t go anywhere. It was projects only! And checking my email when I was finally online again of course!
And this is what my house is starting to look like. This is normal for before an event but it gets old in a hurry! I will be glad when it is time to load up and haul it all out 🙂
There are some fun things stacked in my dining room nook!
I might have to keep some of the baskets I found at Salvation Army yesterday!
Longaberger baskets CAN be painted and sky doesn’t cave in 😀 And vintage brass stencils make anything more fun!
More projects to finish tomorrow and on to pricing! Have a great weekend!
