Motivation for Monday...Sneak Peeks at Fun Finds!

Not quite done...just a peek... 

I found this table in my mother and father in law's barn...just needed a little TLC.

Here is another one I found at a yard sale...they said they were just 
going to throw THIS in the burn pile! OUCH!

I brought her home...cleaned her up...

Another one that I think I HAVE to keep..our black pedestal dining set is now for sale!


A $5 find...I am working on this...some vintage feedsacks...a little paint...

This is gonna be good...

I hope you have a great Monday...I have a ton of stuff to work on and paint (in between cleaning house and loads of laundry fun!

Love & Junk~

  1. I cannot believe they were going to throw that table in the burn pile! So glad you rescued it! Can't wait to see it all transformed!

    1. I about fell over when she said that!!! I am waiting for the baby to get up from her nap so I can haul it in the house (and not wake her)...I think I am keeping the rectangle drop leaf and selling our current set! We have an antique round pedestal I painted black...and time for a change.

      Always nice to talk to you...have a great day!

  2. I'm so glad you rescued the table before they threw it away! You found some great finds, Julie! And great transformations as well!

    1. Thank you, Chelsea! She is now in our dining room...and our old set will be for sale at our Flea Market my mom and sis and I will be having in April!

    1. Thank you Melanie...I will head on over to you!

  4. Looks like you have been keeping busy! Your table transformations are amazing. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the chairs. I have a chair project I'm starting soon and it makes me so nervous. Definitely out of my comfort zone. I love the way you have your posts set up with a "theme" for the days of the week. Makes it super simple for planning I bet. I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back here. I loved hearing from you! I saved your email so I could check back and see how you are doing. Clearly all is well. :o)

  5. Oh, are SO sweet! I have been a busy bee...with a 4 year old and 1 year old in tow. My mom and sister and I are working on our Flea Market...April 20th...LOTS going on! My mom is who turned me on to you...big fans!

    I am going to try and tackle that chair later this week...I will admit...I am a bit afraid myself! I just have to jump in there and do it!

    It means the moon to me that you visit!

    Have a fabulous week!
