Cool trash to treasures I just finished

Old wooden spice rack dry brush painted it white to let some of the wood show through, stapled a piece of burlap to the back and filled a few of the containers with sand, shells, rocks.  Voila`!!
This table had a wood like enamel top yuck!  So I painted it, stamped it and antiqued it.  It's alot cuter, sort of bohemian style. 

My travel guestroom

The map I found at an estate sale for .25 was the inspiration.  I like having a piece, fabric, something for inspiration to get me going.  The trunk was given to me by my Aunt and Room for Rent my sister in law.
The pic on the trunk is a nice old print of  The Old Man in the Mountain I found at a nice shop around here.
The armoire I found at the great shop I work at for my sister and brother inlaw, Second Avenue Consignment in Amherst NH.  Look for it online It was just the original dk. stain so I painted it close to the color of the ocean in the map.  Love it, love paint!  Oh scuffed it up, of course!

A little at a time

This blog creating is not much to it.  I'll get it though.  At least I've started.
Tomorrow's another day.
