I don’t get to many garage sales and when I do, I’m not typically one to find the “great” treasures I’ve seen some people bring home and blog about. However, a few Saturday’s ago, the mister and I went out for a few hours and hit about 3 garage sales. I found something at all three.
This is where I say “score”!!!
A vintage sewing drawing in need of some repair…
and some tender loving care…
and some glue…
a fresh coat of paint…
a bit of hand painted typography
in french no less!
makes all things look
or in this case…
then I added a couple of rusty handles
distressed the paint
stuffed and fluffed
staged with some lovely green apples
I love it!
Painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint * Charcoal
Typography in ASCP * Old White
Antiqued and sealed with ASCP Dark wax
Credit for this fabulous find goes to my adorable oldest daughter. She had called me as she left my house to tell me that they had pasted some garage sales in my neighborhood.
If she hadn’t called…
this post would not have been written!
and I wouldn’t have this lovely vintage sewing drawer to look at and remind me of her.
