Seeing PoTentiaL~~~~~Recently ReDone

One of my Weekend Market Finds
sanded, painted a robins egg blue, sanded again, & stained

Before........bowl on the left
it had a layer of Nasty, with a capital N, on it
once I got through that
it looks like this

Reproduction Firken/Sugar Bucket
whatever you want to call it
natural wood before
now barn red over black

$1.00 Footstool
recovered in a remnant of home decor fabric I had

...~...Now comes the Seeing Potential Part...~...

If  you remember I went to an auction a couple weeks ago
got lots of chairs and a small table

This is what I have to work with
(don't mind the fabulous backdrop, the 4-wheeler, LOL)

Chairs were all $1.00 each

Small side table $1.00

I have been trying to work on at least one project a day...

so many things waiting on me to be re-done

I also finished up a Wooden Mail Slot and Scoop yesterday..
they are going on my website

Don't forget to check out my Blog Sale
runs through July 9th

Have a Great Day..
