North Carolina Or Bust!

I am back from my buying trip to North Carolina. The purpose of the trip was to find unique home décor items and boy did I ever! The trip was a great success, not only for what I was able to find, but the wonderful people I met along the way. They were truly excited to hear about The Purple Painted Lady Festival and my love of refinishing furniture. Many have been in business for years and were quick to share their wisdom and advice. The information I gained as they say was “Priceless”!

This is what the car was like the day I left.

Here is one of the places I stopped. There was a store front, but I started with the items that were under make shift shelters. Most people would have kept on driving, but you can find a lot of great stuff at places like this!

Just look at the treasures!! Time to start getting down and dirty…I love it!  (Side note: a must have when going on a trip like this are antibacterial wipes!)

After several more stops along the way, you can see the results below:

This is the car on the way home! Jammed pack to the brim! Can not wait to put my finds and all the furniture I have been refinishing over the summer in my booth!. The Purple Painted Lady Festival is September 21st and 22nd!!

As I promised here is another furniture transformation!

The pale blue dresser before. It had layers and layers of paint and took a lot of stripping. Unfortunately, the wood underneath was damaged and I was unable to stain the top and drawers as I had planned.

I really like the way the dresser came out. Sometimes plan “B” turns out better than the original plan.

Got these knobs at Hobby Lobby!

Can not wait to share more of what I am working on! It is crunch time! I can not believe The Purple Painted Lady Festival is less than a month away!!!
