Changing Table-Before & After, Chalkboard Door & More!

Here is a before and after of a dresser I painted for Rachel O.  She was looking for a piece to use as a changing table for a baby girl and I think this one will be perfect!

Here is a chalkboard door I did for Kim who got married at Swann Lake Barn this past weekend.  The venue is beautiful and she said she would send me pictures so I can't wait to see everything.  The chalkboard door is now in my inventory for rustic wedding rentals!

Here are a few new items in my booth at Easy Street Resale...iron and glass coffee table, cute little farm table that would make a great desk, library table... and the blue distressed chest is only $75!

Here is a chevron frame and initial I recently sold on Etsy - the buyer is giving her sister a baby shower and I think the frame and initial will make a great baby gift!

Dresser in Booth, Chevron Initials and Mason Jars!

Here is a dresser I put in my booth at Easy Street Resale for $150...

Here are some more chevron initials I am doing.  I am working on an order to go into a shop in Oklahoma and have also started taking special orders for these at Easy Street!

I'm renting out mason jars for a wedding this weekend in South Alabama - I have 200 in inventory now so if you are planning a rustic wedding and would like to serve your drinks in mason jars, contact me for rental info!

I don't have a booth at Greystone Antiques anymore, I only have furniture at Easy Street but Peggy at Greystone told me that they are having a Holiday Open House - you can join them on Thursday, Nov. 8 from 5:00-9:00 for music, food and holiday cheer!

Chevron Initials, Blu Building and Sondra Hill Photography!

I've started making large chevron initials and will have them in my spaces in town and Etsy soon! 

The Blue Building in Alabaster will be having an Open House this weekend offering 10% off all merchandise not already on sale and door prizes offered.  Faith Consignment is also having an Open House.  

Look at this great pie safe that was at The Blu Bldg.  I saw it the other day and when I went in today it had sold but what a great old piece...

I've been working on lots of chevron frames for a big Etsy order but will be putting more of them in booths soon, too.

I met Sondra of Sondra Hill Photography last week at the Buck Creek waterfalls in Old Town Helena because she had wanted to rent two of my vintage chairs for the photo shoot of her adorable daughter Hayden.  She does beautiful work and you can see more on her facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/pages/Sondra-Hill-Photography/185058248242762!
