I haven’t posted any B&A photos for a while, so here are a few so you can see what else I’ve been up to! SOLD
I loved this little table, and it was the first thing I sold that day. Perfect for a small plant, or book, or cup of tea.
This also came from the hoarder’s house. My friend Gus insisted I take this frame. It’s c. 1870s frame for a mirror that would have set on a dresser. I didn’t want it, I didn’t know what to do with it, but he convinced me. I have picture frames dangling from ribbons but I don’t know that I love it. I think I’m going to try putting in a cork board instead.
There’s a saying “never say never” and it applies here! This dresser is something I bought at Target several years ago. It’s one of they cheap laminate pieces that aren’t meant to last. But recently I found another dresser I wanted to keep so I need to get rid of this one. I swore I wouldn’t work with anything made of particle board or laminate. Well, guess what. I decided it was in good condition so why not. What I discovered is that you can’t sand it, and you can’t paint it! So now what? How about decoupage? That worked! I took it to the market and just asked for someone to make an offer. A guy came up and wanted it and offered $35. SOLD! Yes, a guy. I was a bit surprised because this is sorta girlie, but who am I to judge?
So those are just a few recent pieces. I’ll more in a few days!
