What I Have Been Working On!

This is an old paddle that has been laying around now for quite some time. It was painted bright white, and that just wouldn't do.....:) So I painted it black, crackled it, added a very deep beige topcoat, sanded, and antiqued, and now it looks like it has been around for centuries. I love this sheep design by John Sliney was the perfect design for this piece. Love how it turned out.

I received this recipe box from a dear friend, and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. It originally had been a maple color wood, and though cute, just wouldn't do in a prim kitchen. So of course I had to make a few changes......:) Again just a little black paint, some stars added to the sides, and you have a perfect prim addition to any kitchen.

I will be working on more trash to teasure items throughout the spring and summer. I set aside one day a week, to hit garage sales, estate sales, and moving sales to find some of my treasures. I have so many ideas, just need to find that perfect 'treasure".


  1. Love both items Jody! You did awesome on them!! By the way, I got the sheep block yesterday, I absolutely love it!! Thank you so much!!

  2. So glad you like it Brenda! Thanks for letting me know..appreciate it.
