My shelves are done!

It's been a good day! I volunteered at the Happy Cat Haven sale for a couple of hours this morning. I mainly helped them unpack all of their items from the storage locker. Then when I got home, I finished my shelves from the dump. Yesterday I worked on the shabby chic look then today I sealed them. They look a lot better now! Not bad for $1!



Recent Thrift Finds

I picked up these salt and pepper shakers at the Salvation Army yesterday - it's been a slow week for kewl thrift store finds! They were $2.50. They're from Italy and a lovely simple wood design. I sanded them then wiped olive oil on them. I love items like these - simple, functional and made of quality material.

Project Update

Here's the fabric for my teak lamp shades. Now I just need the lamp shade frames plus glue, etc. I've also picked out the fabric for the mahogany floor lamp I'm refinishing. I'm waiting for the fabric to go on sale at Fabricland. Gotta love those 50% off sales! Thanks to Thelma for picking the fabric up for me. It was on sale in Vancouver last weekend and usually I'm in Gibsons on the weekend. I don't leave unless I have to!


  1. Your shelves look great! Can't wait to see more of your projects. When I checked out your teak floor lamp pic, I was awed by the view from your deck. Stunning!

    Thanks for following my blog!
