Bonjour Mes Amis!
It was Michigan's Longest Garage Sale last weekend, right in my neck of the woods! So I had fun stopping at as many garage and yard sales that I could squeeze into a few hours time! There were tons of people out and about, I think half the fun was mingling! I was amazed at the variety of things that I spotted. Everything from a wedding dress to an old bathroom sink at one sale! Another sale had an adorable vintage baby buggy, complete with "peep hole" windows on each side! Another sale had an antique bathtub that was pretty worse for wear. Of course, there was alot of crusty, rusty and grungy looking things at many of the sales. Those were the ones that I quickly passed up!
I did manage to find quite a few treasures to transform for my shop, so today I thought I'd share with you a few of them that I've already worked some magic on!
Beautiful picture frames are always good sellers in my shop, so I was super excited to find this heavy brass frame! Of course it was very, well, brassy when I discovered it! I could hardly wait to transform it with my favorite shade of creamy white!
The details of the piece are amazing!
These sweet little frames were pewter finished. I think their new creamy look suits them much better!
I always like to insert vintage sheet music or decorative paper in my frames for their photo shoots.
Look at all of their lovely details.
I guess I was on a roll and got lucky finding great frames! I adore this gorgeous frame with three openings.
It was a bit of a gaudy gold when I first spotted it. But no more!
I really love how the cream paint, and a bit of distressing make all of the wonderful details pop!
I love easels, too! So I couldn't grab the one below fast enough! It's brass, and was just begging to be given my shabby chic treatment!!
It's so pretty, I think.
Perched on top are the sweetest pair of love birds.
That's it for now! I'm off to do some more painting, and to see what you all have been up to!
Have a great day!
