Garage shopping...

Well, Sunday morning after a very disappointing trip to the Flea Market (found nothing, zero, nada!), I decided to go shopping to one of my favorite spots: my own garage! and here's what I found: a not very charming folding table, sometimes called a TV tray...the top was old (not vintage) wallpaper, full of stains and the legs were showing a very bad paint job.



While watching the Red Carpet, and between phone calls to Clara to talk about the dresses, the jewelry and the hairdos the stars had, I played with the little garage treasure....
I decoupaged vintage music sheet on the top and repainted the bottom using an eggshell white paint....

Look at it now....


Perfect height to keep next to a favorite chair, a super cute vintage piece that takes no space at all, something fun and inexpensive.
I'm bringing it to the store today, I hope Clara likes it as much as I do....I'm sure one of our customers will adopt her and she will find a new home!
One more thing, if you have not seen the Slum Dog Millionaire, don't miss it! and if you have teenagers take them to watch it with you. Wonderful, inspiring movie, very deserving of 8 Oscars....As far as the "Best Garage Treasure: the Oscar goes to:...My Table...I just need to put some white paint on that Gold Statue now....

OH WOW.. What a transformation.. I love those kind of projects.. The ones that happen, when you are not realy planning on them. Well i just happen to love sheet music, although i can not read music, i play guitar and my sweety plays fiddle.. And together we make great bluegrass music.. That is a great creation.. Sheila

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, a very sweet comment at that.. We fell very lucky and know it could have been much worse.. We are fine and that is what matters most. We lost the jewelry on the house so to speak( front porch, back porch and carport and storage room that was attached.) But the house itself is fine.. We did not even have to be out of the house at all.. The guy next door, now he had a tree fall on his roof, it went all the way through, and even though he did not have as much damage as we did, he had to leave his home. So we feel very blessed .. Thanks again for the kind comments.. Sheila

I just purchased this table today. I love it! I am excited to use it as the jumping off point to my shabby chic living room redo!! I hope I can find or make more pieces that are just as creative and cute :-)
