flour sack towels...

I am in the midst of lots of projects around here and I love it!
I am working on two room makeovers in my house, pieces for my booth at the shop as well as pieces for our white show.

Today I have a few finished projects to share with you that I am bringing in the shop later today.
Before more snow comes.
Jim and I will be completing phase two of my booth makeover too (as for phase one, we painted one wall last week and it looks wonderful)!
I picked up some flour sack towels last week and with help of The Graphics Fairy embellished a few to tuck in my booth...

It was my first time using iron on transfer paper and it was fun.
I plan on making more for the white show.

A few weeks ago I picked up an ugly unwanted trunk at a thrift shop.  
I wish I took a before photo, it was dark wood with some fruit painted on it.  Here is what it looks like now...

I used the modge podge method on this one.  As you can see I rubbed a bit too hard in a few places, but I like it...perfectly imperfect!
I am saving this for the show.  I am hoping to have a corner full of old trunks and suitcases.

A few weeks ago Mary Ellen and I went treasure hunting and I found a small, old bureau.
Again, I forgot to take a before photo.
I gave it a quick coat of paint and now it is ready to go in my booth...

Simple and Sweet!

This past Sunday was my three year blog anniversary!
It has been a great adventure so far and I feel like I have just begun!
Thank you for visiting!!

You have been busy girl! I just love these graphics on the flour sack towels. They will be a big hit at AHWW, along with that trunk and bureau. Wow! I'm sure the 'before' looks of these two pieces were a far cry from their transformed beauty.
Now you've got me inspired...let's cross our fingers not too much snow this weekend. :)

The little flour sack towels are wonderful, and if that trunk was ugly before, it sure isn't now! What a cute makeover. From the looks of it, your booth must be loaded with things i would love!

I love those towels Sandi and I'm sure they won't last long in your booth. I can only imagine what the trunk and dresser looked like before you worked your magic. Nice job.
