Transformation Tuesday....My Flea Market Loot...Before & Afters!

The countdown is ON!  WooHoo!
Days...just days are left before our Fancy Flea Market!

So, for today's "Transformation Tuesday,"  you will be getting a few BONUS peeks

This dresser was in pretty good condition...look at ALL that original hardware!!!

I scooped this one up and gave her a cute coat of a creamy white for a shabby chic look...
and voila, cute!!

and after.  I am really in LOVE with this Martha Stewart Bougainvillea!!
I didn't have a chair for this desk when I bought it...I was sure I could find a cute one somewhere.
Mother In Law to the rescue...she scored a set of two of these chairs for $10 for me!

A cute little vintage waterfall style nightstand...another local yard sale find.

I spruced this one up with a cute little coat of creamy white... and painted that
twin headboard/footboard you see in the back.  Instant set!!

This chair was a FIND at a local yard sale...at $1!  Yep, $1!!!
I HAD to have her..

A little funky Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence...and I found just the right mix of fabric.

  6. I have no idea how you do it! Where do you find all the time to get this stuff done??? My mother in law comes down one day a week to watch my 11 month old so I can work on projects. I get a lot done on those days - but never seem to actually finish anything! You amaze me! And your transformations are always soooo gorgeous! You've got talent girl! Oh and by the way - I visited your Etsy shop today! LOVE your pillows! You are just the cat's meow in all departments!

    2. Awww...that was super sweet and made my night! I dont' know...sometimes I think I am nuts!!

      I just work EARLY in the morning...stenciling or something quiet like that so I don't wake the sleeping giants. I really hustle when our oldest is at preschool two days a week...and the baby naps during that time.

      I actually just laid both girls down for bedtime...checked this really quick (thank you!) and I am headed out to my shop (garage) for a "hot date" with my husband...of finishing touches to all of my stuff for our Flea Market this weekend!

      You are TOO sweet...and you have made my night!!


  7. Very impressive Julie. I, too, don't know how you get it all done! I can't ever find furniture I like when I'm out looking or on Craigslist. I feel like there's these secret furniture clubs out there with all the best old, paintable furniture. ha!! :) Seriously, though, great work!

    1. Oh, thank you Laura!!! You are to sweet as well...you made my day.

      I am off to the zoo with my girls today for a preschool field trip...and my hubby's birthday dinner tonight. Not much getting done today furniture wise...oh well!

  8. What great transformations! I'm sure the flea market will be a big success for you. Blessings, Patti

    1. Thank you, Patti! We had a great time!

  9. I love all the transformations! Thanks for sharing at Give Me the Goods!


  10. Julie,
    Those before and afters are so amazing!! I just started a blog party to share great deals like this...I'd love for you to join us and get the party started!!!
    PS. You've inspired me to get out that paint...things are warming up where I live!
