I survived the Michigan Antique Festival

Rain threatened periodically, but all in all it was a fun weekend at theMidland Antique Festival in Midland.
Here's two items I bought and refurbished just days before packing up my borrowed van. I'm glad I did because they sold almost immediately.

Now I'm getting stuff done

Here's a sampling of projects I wrapped up today. I liked the tall basket I did so much I decided to make a few smaller ones.

I also turned a discarded drawer into a table and used a vintage BIngo box on the top. I was going to make feet for the table out of old pool balls, but I only had three. Luckily I had some cute metal legs that I had taken off another project. I painted them red to go with the top.

Last but not least, I made over a shopping cart...I think it would make a cute hamper. Hopefully someone will buy it at the Michigan Antique Festival next weekend and stick a lot of other merchandise in it too!

Basket love

I love how this basket turned out. Thankfully it doesn't really match my house or I'd be in danger of keeping it. You can't make money if you never sell your stuff.
