I think I finally finished the Christmas decorations!! Well, almost, still some tweaking to do, but I did take pics and I'll share those tomorrow. I figured I had better take them while the house was fairly put together and clean, because with 6 munchkins, it doesn't take long for it to get messy.
For today, I'm sharing some of the stuff I got from 2 weekends ago and some make overs...
The first pic shows some glass ornaments and garland I bought at a church sale for a $1.50 total. I try to buy some glass ornaments each year to add to my collection for my tree, so this is this years contribution. I love this glittery garland, but ironically, I couldn't find anywhere to use it, it was just too sparkly to go with my decor this year. But I will save it for some other year.
And here is a nice big black and cream check table cloth I got at an antique store for $8.
Lastly, this large 3 tier shelf at an antique store for $3. This is the best antique store around, it's a lot of junk but a lot of treasures and so cheap!!
Now for the make overs.... Here is a little cupboard I picked up from Goodwill about a month ago for $9.99.And painted over.... I still need to sand it and rough it up, but for now it looks better. And I didn't paint is black! Mostly red with some black grunging.
And then there was this dresser at goodwill that I just had to have. It was a big purchase for me at GW, $22, but well worth it. It's a vintage Sears dresser with a cloth label in the drawer.
I loved the lines of it and the hardware was usable. The red paint actually looks OK in the pic, but trust me, it was hideous, almost a pinky color.
Here it is done, well almost, not primmed up yet, just the base coat. And no, I didn't do black paint again, mainly because I was out. So it went green. I couldn't find an adequate spot anywhere for it, so right now it's in my sewing room.Like I said, tomorrow will be house pic day, actually I may make it over several days because I took about 100 pics, and that's just of the main floor.
I'm just glad it's all done, I'm so tired and don't have the energy I used to have, I'm definately feeling very pregnant these days:)
Have a beautiful night,
