SO what was next? I had nothing to paint. I stumbled upon a blog one time (I don't even remember what blog it was or I would give credit) and the blogger had painted some furniture. GASP! I can do that! SO I zoomed to my nearest thrift store to find my first victims..er...pieces. I found two, once lovely, side tables. So I painted, then distressed with a fork and a hammer cause I wanted them to have a rustic look, and then I glazed with some brown. I thought they turned out rather well for never having done it before. I bought the 2 side tables for $6 each and ended up selling them to a lovely woman for $100 for the pair. WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED? That was AWESOME! Not only did I have fun painting the tables, I actually sold them to some one that LOVED them! Mind you they were Ethan Allen side tables so the lady got a smoking deal if I do say so myself. My husband thought I was crazy that I had actually done that! Well, here's the rest of the story....I just acquired a spot at Merchant Square in Chandler, AZ! I share it with one of my friends and amazing furniture revive-ist Julia from 551 East Furniture Design. I am so honored to be able to share a spot with her. Not only is she an amazing furniture revive-ist (I made that word up) but she is an AMAZING person as well. How did I get so lucky? :) So please, if you're in the Chandler area, stop by and check out our spot, #124. We hope to have it full or fabulous one of a kind furniture! Also, I want to thank all my followers, readers, friends and my husband and children for all your/their support in my latest endeavour! Love you all!
Ah, so happy. :)
