Some finished projects (or almost finished)

here are a few items I've picked up over the past few months and ... what I've done with them.

Remember this Window I picked up last weekend and those legs I found in the trash?
We'll they've been married

I plan to hang prisms from the metal corner pieces when I get my order in..

Now remember this table bottom? And the Blue shelf there too.

I've added some scrap wood to the top and made it a ligitimate table again.
I will be sealing the top (due to lead paint) and possibly dry brushing a few areas white. This will be a piece for my booth. Oh did I mention that I'm moving into a larger booth space in April?

Now for that blue bookshelf. When in doubt paint it white.

And I've added a little margo touch (embellishments) to it and added a back.

Now for some shopping
I went into Hobby Lobby today for just one little thing, right. Well I wondered down too many other isles and came home with this gem.

I love the dimension to this piece, and the colors are perfect for my house

and it was half price

Then I found this little gal

I think I'll use her in my bathroom to hang necklaces from. She was also half price.
did I get the item I went for? No, they didn't have a stencil that I liked :(
But I do love what I brought home.
Ta Ta, I've got to go hang my star.

As usual, I love your projects. I really need to learn how to use some power tools! I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and saw that star. It is beautiful!

Hi Margo, I have been reading your blog for several months now. I am so inspired by your upbeat outlook, your endless energy, and your obvious love of people. I have been a junker for many years, and am so happy to find you and you have led me to many other wonderful bloggers. For many years I told people that my house was furnished with "Early Garage Sale";-]. Thankyou so much, Jan

Love everything you've done...especially the shelf and table. The star that you found at Hobby Lobby is fantastic!

OMG! I visit your blog often to see what creative endeavour you're up to. But imagine my surprise when I see that you bought the exact same star that I have hanging in my LR/DR. (it's even on my blog post from yesterday).
We don't have Hobby Lobby in Canada, I bought mine at Homesense about a month ago and it was the only one they had.
Such great taste you have!!

Love the shelf, I'm always on the lookout for shelving.

Have a great day! :)

You never stop do you?! :)

p.s The sign that hangs in my livingroom "Change for Richmond Line" is just one of many pieces (orginally from England) that hubby and I bought not far from here in an antiques barn. All old - and all enameled. So fab! Good eye to notice it! :)

They are all great, but I love that was blue, now white shelf!
I'm hoping to have time tomorrow to check in on your booth.
