This was another extremely busy weekend. I did manage to get a ton of work done and I am thrilled with how all of the pieces turned out.
Here are few that I am most proud of!!!
First up is a dresser that was in bad need of some love...
And after a little white loveliness...
And I am happy to say that she is going to a wonderful new home.
I also, along with Mr. Rubbish (couldn't do it without him), was able to complete three new vintage framed chalkboards. Here are my two favorites!
I especially love the next one...in all of it's ornate-ness...(is this a word?)
I have been in love with ornate framed chalkboards since I saw one in a Cottage Living magazine article three years ago...man I miss that magazine :(.
In my old house, which I have mentioned was realllllly formal, I had an old antique gold framed mirror...very similar to the one above, hanging over my dining room buffet. In the new little rental, it would have looked ridiculous; So instead of it sitting somewhere collecting dust, I just went for it and created the chalkboard of my dreams. I have received so many compliments and requests that I decided there were probably other folks out there that may like them as well! The chalkboard makes the fancy frame feel much more casual. I just love them...
All of these items, with the exception of the dresser, are listed on my Etsy shop, Dignified Rubbish
How was your weekend?
