Well, I was REALLY hoping I'd have lots of good pictures for you from the sale yesterday, but that was not to be. I think the buyers were all like me, wanting to get out in the nice weather, and really wanting to stock up on merchandise, since you never know what the weather might be in the next few weeks. I spent a whopping $60 at Crumpton, and came home with a truck not even half full...not exactly the big day I was hoping for! Guess I need to just get out there and work on what I have. That should make the unnamed members of my family who have been "commenting" on all the inventory out there happy. Ummm, doesn't anybody like oak anymore? I brought this oak china cabinet home from one of the stores I have space in, and I am perplexed. It has been in there since I first started that booth...probably about 18 months...and NO ONE has shown any interest at all. The good news for my barn sale customers is that I am dropping the price. A LOT! Like, right around what I paid for it. I am tired of looking at it, so it's gotta go! Let me know if you want to look at it before the barn sale, I'd love to get it out of the shed sooner rather than later!
I really have been working on getting things painted or repaired (or whatever!) and ready for the sale. I need to make a trip over to Delmar and drop some things off so I have more room to work. Plus, Doug brought a tractor (a John Deere 3020, for those of you who would care!) home the other day that he wants to restore in the heated part of the shed...guess that gives me company out there, but less space! I am currently working on a couple of benches,
And I have cleaned up a trunk that I need to Briwax, and maybe put wheels on to give it a little height, and make it easier to move around:
And, finally, the next piece I'm going to start, this cute little record stand from the 40's or 50's. And yes, you guessed it...Annie Sloan and I will be working together on this. Knew I couldn't stay away from that paint for very long, didn't you!
Have a great weekend, and, by the way...GO RAVENS!!! Yeah, they are second choice in this house, right behind the Redskins, but we are cheering for them now!

I'm loving the record cabinet. What color will it be?
