I missed posting last week because I was feverishly getting ready for The Little French Flea Market last weekend. Although I didn't get to snap photos of my space this time, I thought I would share some of my new projects that I took with me.
One of my fellow dealers at Aubergine Emporium did a grouping of glittered paint brushes which I instantly fell in love with. While it wouldn't be fair to take my version to the shop, I put my own spin on them and took them to the flea market. They were a big hit.
I found this cute wire shelf at a yard sale. It was hot pink and I do mean hot! Ya gotta love those teenage girls and their love of pink. I toned it down with heirloom white and had my husband cut some scrap wood so the shelves were more solid. This went fast too.
I found a new source for some specialty stencils that are very economical and good quality. I will be sharing the source soon. I did a lot of projects from this stencil, but never got them photographed.
I had a stash of tiny old bottles that I attached some simple vintage style labels too. I sold quite a few of these. This whole label thing might be my newest addiction.
My friend gave me some round mirrors. I ran some fabric through the copier to duplicate my bird prints, attached them to a burlap backing and trimmed them out with some black twine. What? You don't have black twine? I spray painted some green twine with flat black paint. Worked like a charm.
One of my followers, 20 North Ora did some cute bottle brush trees with some spools and some tart tins. Here is my spin made with some large wood pieces (you could use wine corks too) and some silver stars and a whole bunch of glitter.
Here are some bird statues I found at another sale. They were a bronzy color. I painted them white and silver and added glitter. These are great for the holidays.
Last but not least is my Paris tray. I did two of these trays in reverse mod podge and I have to say they were a near disaster. In a future post, I will tell you how I turned the negative into a positive. I love the result.
Thanks for visiting. Tomorrow I will share a small wall cabinet that I did. My inspiration was a gift tag of all things.
