Frustrated? Just shabby chic some furniture!

What a weekend so far! I sewed (project to be done tomorrow - it's a commission for a laptop sleeve) then volunteered with the Happy Cat Haven (boy I missed those ladies) then hung out with one of my most favourite people (Karen) and then I dragged furniture outside... It was sunny and warm out and I gave this table heck... Literally I took out all my frustration on this little table and it was worth it!

I picked this end table up at the Salvation Army for $5. I painted it a lovely off-white then beat it up (aka shabby chic-ed it).



I also had 3 frames from the Salvation Army (two for $1.50 and one for $3) that I wanted to shabby chic. It's all about being efficient and having an assembly line.



Now I just need to print some photos for the frames!


I've been lucky these days! I've managed to find some fun items... Barb from Happy Cat Haven classifies the items I find interesting as odd or different... You may agree once you see my Irish linen tea towels for $3 each. I love them! I might try to use them as wall hangings - maybe frame them. I'm not sure yet.

Then I picked this metal table up from the Gibsons Recycling Depot for $3. It's got some potential for kewlness. Now I just need to find a top for it then I'll know how I want to refinish it.

And to top the day off - Karen found some furniture at the side of the road for me! Oh joy! FYI it's the Annual Neighbourhood Swap & Spring Clean Up Event in Gibsons. Could things get any better? I think not... :-)
