Remember This....Changes Are Happening preview post????
Two scary little exit-goodbye photos of Jonny's old room after he pushed all of Justin's stuff in there and moved into the Marine's old room????
Well...I am finished in there...so the door is closed. Ready for Buyer Viewing...Now a guest room/spare room. Pleased to Say it is all thrifted or hand me downs...
This pretty Tray Table was a Craig's find. The girl just wanted to get rid of it and had been carrying it around in her car for weeks, and met me this past winter to sell it. Sweet!!
LOVE this French 3 seater rush seat bench (thanks to a very generous Tip from a new client.)
Craig's List...did it in a distressed blue. The antique mirror - GW ..and vintage blue heater from my grandparent's farm house...restored long ago by my hubby.
Also love this chipped old Welcome relief plaque.. Goodwill
This is actually a Clock Face table - bought it broken at Salvation Army last Fall, and got my Dad to put new clockworks in it. Love it. All of the green and white glass electrical insulators piled in the white wire basket came from my other grandparent's farmhouse.
This white dresser is an antique that was painted a HIGH glossy black. Looked like it belonged in a Chinese restaurant...$20 on Craig's List. Kam helped me pick it up and load it, yes down a flight of stairs...After 6 coats of primer, blue, and then white paint, with new glass knobs...She is so lovely in her new outfit..
The print on the wall above is unusual art for me to get, but when I saw it at Habitat Restore, it just shouted IOWA to me...(please don't question me about these things!) Corn state...Beef cows are corn fed...oh well...I do love prints of animals and children, 'specially if they are vintage, and I have never seen a Bovine print in blue shades...so grab it - I DID! It WILL hang in my hew home in Iowa!! I love the vintage stained glass lamp..also a GW find this past winter.
The little chair was my mom's when she was a child. The Candlestick was silver, but I decided to give it a white coat since it was a GW find. Just some whimsy...and more blue and white.
A shot of the bed. The wicker headboard was a freebie from a friend when I helped her move and she did not want it. The breakfast tray got a white coat - came from Salvation Army. The bedside wicker table came from GW already white, just polished the dirty brass handle.Even the Shabby Chic Rachel Ashwell quilt at the end of the bed came from GW in beautiful shape for just 2.99!!!!! The white fringed spread came from Salvation Army for 1.99!! The toile neck roll pillow was also Salvation Army for .99!
This is one of my favorite finds on Craig's List. A vintage typewriter. **Craig's List $15!!! If you have seen these out and about, you know that is a SCREAMING DEAL!!!! It reminds me so much of a scene in one of my favorite Jimmy Stewart movies, You Can't Take It With You. The mom was always sitting at a little table typing away on one of these hoping to become a playwright one day...Always had a kitten walking all around her and the typewriter! :-) Oh those old days of typing on nice stationary, signing, and stamping the envelope and putting it in the post...No Emailing and Keyboarding....!
This pretty little vintage table was decrepit and scuffed at GW, but for 3.99 I grabbed her, brought her home, cleaned her tightened all the screws and nails, gave her a dry brush coat of white, and then blue, and there she sits. The Vintage Replogle Globe resting on her was in a toy bin at Goodwill all messed up with screws undone. It dangled around like it had broken limbs all over. It too was 3.99. I had just seen one on Craig's List recently for 55.00, but it was a newer model. I could tell by the base. I love the raised relief geographical bumps on it! :-)
Okay...closing the door again. I have also just finished Kameron's room, and I am starting on the boys' bathroom next. This is my post of stuff done to get ready for a move...and also for my hubby to see what I have been busy doing!!
Hugs and Hugs and Hugs to my Iowa Man...whom I miss very very very very much!!!
Blessings to all who might stop by here to visit or see what's going on in our busy little corner here in NC...
Thank you for remembering our Military Heroes and my beloved Marine, Justin, in his deployment over near Libya. God bless them ALL!!!
