It’s hot and dry and leaves are beginning to fall around here, especially from my big old maple tree I like to paint under to shield me from the intense sun! Didn’t stop these little projects from happening today though!
Bought this little desk last weekend at a local estate sale and I was ready to tackle the loose veneer and unattached rail today with the hubs’ help!
Forgot a before picture, did have this one though
After veneer removal and gluing and a bit of sanding before painting:
Veneer removed from top and drawer since it was dry and loose
Painted my favorite off-white and distressed a bit
Also worked on the two faux rust projects you can see while waiting for paint to dry on the desk. I think I am ready for summer to end and fall to begin! How about you?
I love being back at South End! The time that I used to devote to Serendipity I can now split between several things-including my grandbabies! (They are not so little anymore so I am happy to spend more time with them!) I don’t regret the time I spent at the shop but I am glad it is more my own now. Saying that, I really miss our customers and our vendors!!
It is fun to work in a mall or a shop and I have been doing that regularly lately-yesterday we spent a big chunk of it changing the entry from summer to farm on our way to fall I believe. Here are some iPhone pictures to show you what Connie and I were up to between customers and vendors.
LOVE this old hoosier type cabinet!
Too late I realized I left without a picture of the fabulous graphics on the other side! Rescued from a burn pile!!
That wheelbarrow……. (the cord is tucked away now too)
Another wonderful old kitchen center!
Great farm table and chicken stuff!
Now I have the best of both worlds – the chance to “play” at the shop and spend more of my time elsewhere!
