This weekend I spent the entire weekend going to Estate sales, flea markets, tag sales, garage sales, moving sales... I drove all over most of the state of Connecticut!
I found several pieces of lovely furniture...
I have to give them all a good cottage style makeover though.
Even though I just took these "before" photos I can already see in my mind what the after will look like.
I can't wait to show you!
This matching set is so cute...
I kinda like the green, but don't think they will stay that color for long.
Ha! Can you see my favorite magazine??
Romantic Homes of course...
It seems everytime I pick one up, someone I know from blogging is featured...
I love both of their blogs...and Elyse's house puts mine to shame! All I can say is wow!
Both of their blogs are eye candy for sure♥
I am addicted to these vintage canning jars...I love these aqua blue ones the best.
I found 2 really old ones with zinc lids.
I also worked hard to finish some projects. I have had this one for over a year. I figured I can't keep buying things if I never finish any. I gave these canisters a shabby coat of white, and filled them up with some lovely pink treasures. I don't know if you can see those sparkly pink stars in the middle canister. I had a swap with a girl on Etsy. She folds these amazing stars out of paper then makes them all pretty and glittery.
This pink shelf is another one that has been waiting for far too long. It is a vintage shelf, solid wood which is rare now in the age of laminate. It got some layers of different cottage pinks and a really pretty rose swag. It came out really good.
