My New Dining Room Table

My New Dining Room Table

Yep…It’s MINE!!! After a long day strolling through one of the biggest flea markets I’ve ever seen, there was one more building we hadn’t explored. I was tired and really wanted to just go home and look at the few, small things I’d found…but we decided to venture in. I knew the minute I saw […]

Lane Cedar Chest Makeover ~ Part 2

Lane Cedar Chest Makeover ~ Part 2

Antique Dresser

Antique Dresser

This is my bedroom dresser. I’ve only  had it for about 6 months. I don’t know what style this piece is…or how old it is…or what type of wood it’s made from. That’s the kind of antique collector I am. I know nothing. Except if I love something or not. The sweet peas in the […]
