What to do with $68. worth of second hand finds ...

I really enjoy scavenging through junk stores, consignment shops, trash bins!
I know some of you do to...admit it!

The whole process is fun...
finding
painting
placing
LOVE • LOVE • LOVE
BIG LOVE

These are a few of my latest finds
before + after
my favorite being the Samsonite overnight bag!

BEFORE


Very methodically I choose several colors to create a story
so small pieces added into my shop all coordinate...
very important when you're working with small spaces.
Duck Egg Blue + Olive + Old white to lighten it up.

AFTER


Samsonite bag and mini chair
 Duck Egg + Royal Design stencil



 Candle trays with candles from the dollar store!


Once again pal Vickie rings me up with her latest Craigslist find...
she nabbed two of these clock tables
one for her + one for me!


I prettied up the face with a beautiful heavy weight scrap book paper
•those books of scrapbook paper really come in handy•
and yes
Duck Egg with a dark wax over it.



 Now everything matches and looks great on top 
this Script desk 
Springtime in Paris stencil


So get out there and scavenge, show us what you got,
paint it up and show it off!

While your at it, I invite you to leave a comment here on this post,
I love reading them and responding!

Make if a wonderful day...you own it!

ENJOY
