I found this shabby medecine cabinet at Expo, last year... It was a great price and I figured I could resell it! I had it in my booth for a few months but it didn't sell, so one day I brought it home so I could have room to put newer things in the booth. It's one of those items you wonder how it hasn't sold yet, it is so darn cute!! One day, I was cleaning the kids bathroom, and I realized that the puny little (new) medicine cabinet above the toilet was not big enough for the girls' ever increasing arsenal of cosmetic stuff!! It hit me! The chippy green cabinet!! I love it! There has been a few instances before where I have had something for sale, and eventually I figure out that actually I do have a perfect place for it (and then I am happy it didn't sell before!!). Does that happen to you...?
I also wanted to share some of my latest vintage finds! A friend of ours was having a retirement sale at her shop, and I was very excited to find a pair of vintage cast iron lamps at an awesome price!
I have been wanting a pair of large glass S & P shakers and finally found them at a thrift store (it's hard to see, but they are quite large!)
At a local flea market I found a vintage garment bag...
... a black beaded bag and a cream crochet bag...
... and on a trip to Monticello I found this adorable jar with handpainted roses... I want to put candy in there but I am afraid I will eat it all!!
Today I finished a makeover, do you remember this wicker bench I found at a thrift store?
I gave it the shabby treatment with some spray paint and vintage fabric!
I've also started the transformation to this dresser, someone had the unfortunate idea to paint a perfectly good cream dresser this green... I'll share the transformation on my next post!!
Finally, let me just gloat for a little bit... My two oldest daughters were inducted yesterday into the National Junior Honor Society!! This prestigious organization invites students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.65 or more and who demonstrate leadership and commitment to the community, and is one of the highest academic honors avalilable to middle schoolers!! They will be required to do at least 5 hours of community service every trimester. My oldest daughter Anna had been invited to join last year, but at that time she didn't think it was "cool"... I'm glad she changed her mind! We are very proud of them!!
