What's old is new

This is my place to show off the items I would call vintage, things I have either refinished or kept as is and find interesting. I am still a kid at heart bringing home what some might call junk and am always in search of that buried treasure. I am not a picker and I am not a hoarder, working with my hands on my own time repairing or refinishing the things I find brings me peace of mind and time to myself to contemplate whatever has transpired in my life or time to just zone out and concentrate on the task at hand. Some items for sale or possible trade just ask..click on my profile and send me an email.

Chinese Boy & Girl Chalk Ware

I've been crazy busy trying to refinish a Dining room set and some other chairs I have, but in between while waiting for coats of finish to dry I manage to finish some other projects like the lamps in my last post. I have little time to find new things but I did find these pieces of chalk ware, while not high style they have kitschy appeal to them and they are green my fav colour. I'd like to hang them up but the GF squashed that, oh well sacrifice is the price you pay for love. I managed to take down the headboard I made and repaint the panels white since the bronze paint I applied didn't suit anything. The duvet cover I got on sale at The Bay the stripe pillow cases from the Dollar store and brand new still sealed in the original bag goose down feather pillows from Value Village (Three huge scores for the boudoir) the small orange stripe oval pillows I made with fabric from Value Village.

  1. I really like the white panels, especially with the duvet cover you found. Looks great!
