A Little Shabby and Chic

I miss my flea market! As much as I love snow, it's starting to get a little old over here in NJ. There are certain things that just aren't around in the Winter~flea markets and garage sales. Anyone else feelin' a little cooped up these days?


                I picked this up for $10...oh I miss you Flea Market!



The inside is painted pink. Can't really tell from the pic.

This was another flea market find. I sprayed it semi gloss white and  then washed pink over some of it. I loved the carvings but they were a little lost after spraying so I glazed in just a few areas here and there. Even though I carefully covered the mirror w/ post its, there was some spray residue. I used nail polish remover to remove it...came off so easy and sure beat me scraping it w/the finger nails I don't really have.


Like my lame attempt at staging for Etsy??

Love it so pretty! Is that a old sewing machine cabinet? I have been wanting to get one but haven't done so yet because they always have the sewing machine in it lol. They are so darn heavy.
