A Little This and That

I got to work on a few things today and take a few things out to my antique booth. I painted up this table. Forgot a before picture, imagine that, but it was your basic brown, scratched table. I used the candlewax technique on it with five colors: cream, green, orange, brown, and blue.

Look at the cute vintage lamp I found. The shade I put on it is pretty bad, but it's all I had for now.

Here is fun folding artist's stool and a bakelite poker chip holder and an aluminum ice bucket. I took out a couple of other little goodies.

I have other projects in the works. I am thinking I want to tell my family that for Mother's Day I want to be able to work, uninterrupted all day, and not come inside to a huge mess and dirty dishes Ü. Hey, a girl can dream!
