I'd like this one "After"

I'd like to share with you some "After" pictures of a sweet vintage table that recently sold at JunkFest.  It's an "after" for two, per my standard m.o. there is no "before" picture! And two, it's truly an "after" in...I'd like this one back.  Not only do I not get before shots of my projects, I rarely get staged after pictures, but this one time I was on the ball enough to put her in my living room for a few quick shots. And now that I am posting them...I realize that I wish I had kept her.

Pardon the glare in these photos...and the dog's tail in the above. :)

She was originally stained when I got her.  Since I love Miss Mustard Seed's stained/painted style, I opted to re-stain the top and paint/shabby her spindly legs.

As Lynette said in her previous's all in the details.  This girl's shabby details would have worked so well in my house...

And here she is at JunkFest, before all hell broke loose, waiting patiently for her new owner...

How 'bout you?  Any furniture afterthoughts you'd like to have back?

Sometimes, it's all in the details...

Don't you just LOVE to embellish!?
I know us JunkFest Girls do!

I found some old wooden hangers and decided I would make them my canvas.
I love these old metal numbers and thought they added a masculine and industrial touch.

                                   A dab of glue and a couple tacks secured them in place.

                                     What a great way to hang your favorite man's ties

                                                         Or even your little half pint's ties!  :)

Then I brought out the big guns...Mod Podge!

Who knew a metal number and some scrapbook paper
could make hanging up your clothes a little more fun!

There are so many fantastic patterned papers out there these days,
 the sky is the limit when it comes to decoupaging!

Now I can store my scarves..

or jewelry...

or coats...

or even my favorite magazines...
in style!

I think they turned out kind of cute, don't you?

These got snatched up at JunkFest ...
(probably by Ryan Gosling,
who I am just certain was hiding in the crowd)

...but you can easily make your own!

Pictures of JunkFest 2012 coming soon....
It was a GREAT day in Carrington!
