A Couple of TWO-TONE, Annie Sloan Makeovers

By now, it’s probable you’re aware that I love to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I DO! I DO!  In this case, that’s particularly true, because I wasn’t about to lug my dresser outside for sanding.  No sir! The two … Continue reading

VINTAGE DOOR: Decorative, Functional, & Illuminating

I ♥ DOORS. By now, I’m sure you’re aware I love to decorate with my own original creations. So, a few months back, when I found a gorgeous vintage door at the Cave Creek Thieve’s Market – I knew I’d … Continue reading

SWEET SALVAGE – May 17, 2012

I’D LIKE TO INVITE ALL OF YOU TO JOIN ME ON A JUNK ADVENTURE!

The third Thursday of every month is much anticipated in my neck of the woods.

Why?  SWEET SALVAGE, that’s why!

Haha, BUYERS BEWARE!

If you’re a person who loves old stuff and the kind of  interesting finds you can’t get at Target; this event is just what the doctor ordered.  Think – indoor flea market of awesomeness.  Now that triple digit weather is pretty much a guarantee from now until October, Sweet Salvage being indoors with AC, is a cherry on top of an already great time.  On Thursdays,  people are lined up outside waiting to claim his or her territory.  If you see something you like, and you don’t buy it right away, it’s likely to disappear from under your nose.  This type of environment is very conducive to impulse shopping, but there are great deals to be had.

 First, I’ll show some of the highlights of the event.

Then, you’ll get to see what I got!

THESE TYPES OF EVENTS ARE NEVER SHORT OF GREAT DECORATING IDEAS

GREAT FURNITURE

ODDS AND ENDS

  

I always have a ton of fun and leave with an assortment of goods.  This week was no exception.  I love to come home and display my purchases on the table for a quick moment of admiration.  Come, have a look!

MY STUFF

I SAW THIS AND I RIPPED THE TAG OFF AND GOT A SOLD SIGN ON IT, REALLLL QUICK!  I SAW SOME PEOPLE EYEING HER UP AND I KNEW I NEEDED TO MAKE AN HONEST WOMAN OUT OF HER, ON THE DOUBLE!  IT’S A DRESSER, BUT I’M USING IT IN MY DINING ROOM AS A BUFFET.

FAVORITE FIND:  I CAN’T DECIDE BETWEEN THE CLOCKS AND THE DRESSER

OLD SHOE DISPLAY(PUMPS NOT INCLUDED), SIGNS, AND AN OPERA PROGRAM

                                 I LOVE THE PATINA ON MY WOODEN TRAY, AND THE EMBELLISHED LEATHER GLOVES FEEL LIKE BUTTAH!  OLD LEATHER TENDS TO BE DRY AND FALL APART.  THESE WERE IN GREAT CONDITION.

PRETTY BLUE FLASH BULBS AND GALVANIZED TRAY

If you live in the Phoenix area, I would highly recommend stopping by Sweet Salvage.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

AMAZING PROJECT ALERT!

This week, you’re in store for a real treat.  A great functional and decorative DIY project is coming your way, so be sure to stop back in.

Until really soon,
