I have LOST the picture I saved for TWO WEEKS that I wanted to show you all!!!  It was a picture of a beautiful oak desk that had been painted and waxed...it started out much like this...

and they had painted and distressed the drawer section, only leaving the top a beautiful natural wood.  I was going to try to talk you into the desk, and encourage you to "Play With Paint"...but forget it...you'll never know how pretty that desk was, unless I find that picture again!

So...instead, I'll talk about the upcoming Barn Sale.  You know the dates already, but if you have forgotten, they are listed at the top left of our blog home page...you will always be able to find them there, since sometimes it's not easy to find them when you need them.

We are both VERY excited about this sale.  We are expecting record crowds, since we have LOADS of vendors coming on Saturday the 14th, and we seem to getting more followers all the time.  So, we do have a little bit of backup furniture to replace the pieces that get sold early.  If you are looking for something in particular, please ask.  We have some pieces stashed that may or may not be painted the first time you see them.  If they end up in this sale, they will likely be in the state in which we found them.  If they make it all the way to the Christmas sale, they will be spiffed up...maybe painted, maybe just cleaned up and waxed.  The good news is, the less time we put into them, the better the price!

We have been keeping the Facebook page updated, so please check in there every now and then.  In the meantime, here's a taste!

Photo: The hubster has been working hard to make the yard pretty....filled driveway with fresh dirt, cut grass, wacked weeds, and put lights on the old advertising truck! THANK YOU BRIAN:-)

Photo: Ok....I couldn't wait for the barn sale to show this to you....finished the painting today!!!! Two shades of cream colored paint....the inserts are lighter than the rest of it if you can't tell.

Hope you have a great day, and I will be back with a list of our vendors for Saturday.  See you soon!!!

Happy Monday!

Photo: It's the big day!!!! That's right.....the day when the chicks hire Patti's nephews, Brandon and Bub, to do all the heavy furniture moving!!! Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day :-)

And could we ask for a more beautiful August day?  It feels like October with the low humidity and nice cooler temperatures!  Yesterday was wonderful, too, and a PERFECT day to start moving furniture around in the barn!  We had our two great helpers, Bub and Brandon, and got just about all the furniture that was upstairs and needing to come down/downstairs and needing to go up moved into the designated room.  It's great having helpers, and well worth the money we pay...these two chicks aren't getting any younger!

We have done a lot of painting this time, and we are really excited for you to see the pumpkin color Sharon chose.  So far she's painted a music cabinet, a big star, a cute little side table, and a mantle with that gorgeous color.  There's also a great mustard color that you will be seeing a lot of.  Blended in, we have a nice cream, and lots of natural wood because it looks SOOO nice for fall decorating.  I think there will be enough great furniture to go around, and just in case there isn't, we have a few pieces in storage already for backup!  We are still looking for a couple of special pieces, going to our favorite sales and keeping our eyes peeled!

I can't stand to be at this computer for too long today...don't want to waste any of my outside time.  Never know how long this gorgeous weather will hold up!  Hope you have a great week!
