I have been one busy gal lately. I am trying my best to get ready for our garage sale this weekend. I have been cleaning like some maniac lately and it feels so good to get the clutter out of the house. I have said on numerous occasions that we are out growing this home and when you have things jammed and stuffed and stored everywhere……well, it tends to get a little cluttered and overwhelming to say the least. So, our garage sale starts on Friday and it will carry through to Saturday. I have tons of baby/toddler clothes and toys, primitive knick-knacks, a treadmill that I should be using, but have only used 4 times, a highchair, a baby swing, a prim wooden trash bin that someone made for me, but to be honest with you……. I think you could only fit a hot dog in it. It is so small and I was constantly taking the trash bag out and setting it beside the trash bin. I hated having that out for all to see so I was quite relieved when I found the new one at the TS. I just need to get on it and re-finish it. I will probably do that after the garage sale so be watching for the make-over pics. Anyway, here is what my garage currently looks like. Oh yes, full of stuff to sell and I am hoping that I can make some money.
I have also been working on an item that I bought at the Goodwill Store about a week ago. I knew when I first saw it that it had great potential and indeed it does. I was thrilled with the way that it turned out, but I had to get a little creative so that is exactly what I did. I haven’t been able to find small knobs at all. I can only find the size that you would put on a kitchen cabinet door and I knew that would be too big. So, after thinking and organizing the garage……. I got this brilliant idea!! There was this item that I was going to sell and I thought that I could take the pegs and use those for knobs. So, that is what I did. I took these pegs and cut them off to make myself some wooden knobs.
I was definitely pleased after I got them to look more like knobs and after I got them on my TS shelf…… well, they looked perfect! Let’s take a look at my shelf before the make-over. Do you remember this purchase for $2.92.
Here it is now. Doesn’t it look great? I am so pleased with the way that it turned out. The knobs are the perfect size and well I love the Barn Red over the Black. So, what do you all think? Are you in love as much as I am? Ummm, now I need to find some prim pretties to place on the top and hang it up and it will be complete. I’ll post pictures of it after I find the perfect home and decorations for it. Stay Tuned for those pics!!
Well, that is what I have been working on today. I still believe it or not have more stuff to go out to the garage so I better get busy. Have a great day Ladies.
Until Next Time……… Lisa
