From Mama's Porch

My friends at From Mama's Porch are gearing up for the Kansas Barn Sale this Saturday in Heston, Kansas.  It is a huge sale with lots of great hand made items and antiques.  Here are just a few of the thing my friends have been working on.

Aren't these angels cute!?!  Make sure you notice the details on them.  I love the chain hair.

It's never to early to start getting ready for Christmas.

I just love that they use a lot of old elements like these when making some of their treasures.

So if you get a chance, go on out to Heston and make sure you visit Mama's Porch.  You can visit the Kansas Barn Sales blog and get directions to the sale or visit them on Facebook.

Quick Furniture Makeover With Spray Paint

My daughter came home from college one weekend and said I need a TV stand for my dorm room.  So of course we went shopping.  I have to say the choices were not good.  They lacked character plus talk about expensive.  We had just about given up when I remembered this little table I had down in my storage room.
This is obviously the BEFORE picture.  Which I almost forgot to take.
But the AFTER.......
WOW!  What a difference.  I just love paint.  Since I knew my daughter would be taking this back with her the next day and there would not be a lot of drying time I decided to use spray paint.  It worked wonderfully.  I did prime the table first then sprayed on two coats of spray paint.  The paint I used was Rust-oleum satin Aqua.  We sprayed the handle white and ta-DA we have a cute TV stand with lots of personality for not much money.
