Whites for the Flea Market

Until I do the flea market at the end of August it is pretty much all that I think about. 

 What needs to be painted?  What still needs upholstering?  Do I have enough tags?  Are my business card tags ready?  When do I get my new printer?  Can I pick up my new sewing machine yet?  How do I work these machines?  Am I ready to start Etsy yet?  Lots, and lots yet to do.

Oh, and is it time for the beach YET? 

I have actually done quite a bit in between all of my normal daily goings on.  Do you remember this dresser?  Yellow, you may remember it is my least favorite color.

Well it's not yellow anymore!

Happy dresser, no more nasty yellow.

How about this bench, do you recall that tapestry top?

It has a good body but the top has to go.

Now this is not my normal colors but I plan on having a display for Fall/Halloween and this will be perfect.  Hey if it doesn't sell I can always redo the seat again.

Rocker before



I painted the frame and mirror white too.
Even the baseballs are going to be displayed in a bowl for sale.

These are only a few of the many treasures I will be selling at the flea market, to see more visit my new shop blog here.

I am joining Kathleen from Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

  17. You HAVE been busy, and I love all your projects. That bench is really wonderful!!! Great beach photo from last post,

  18. Alaina I am in awe of how much you do. I love your makeovers!!! This is an exciting time for you and I wish you all the luck.
    Your babies at the beach are too darn cute for words.

  19. Hi Alaina, My gosh woman, all the things you do and need to get done.... I'm already exhausted just reading about it. Your makeovers are great, and I hope everything goes well for you at the flea market.

    Have a Wonderful Day, and don't work to hard!

  20. Oh you're killing me. Too much goodness in one place. I may have to rent a room and come to the flea market!

    Your Friend,

  21. what can I say? I like the yellow printed rocking chair! can you imagine?

  22. I am not a yellow person as you know but I too like the rocker too. I think it is the big cabbage roses.

  23. All your redo's look fantastic! But that Minas Gerais coffee bench is wonderful!! Minas Gerais is in Brazil, and we used to vacation there, in the old mining towns with beautiful colonial architecture. (our family lived in South America for a while) So many good memories!

  24. I love that dresser, it's beautiful! Yellow is almost my least favorite color too (orange wins!). Happy weekend!

  25. What a charming home and blog you have! This is my first visit and Brenda sent me over to say Hi. Stop by and visit me when you have a chance!
