There has been a lot of activity going on in the workshop in “Ginger’s Attic”. I have been getting to all those projects that have been stored in my workshop for a while. I wasn’t allowing myself to buy any new pieces till I got those done. My husband made a bench out of a twin headboard that I had painted and distressed. A cabinet that we use in the dessert room in our restaurant got an update with some fresh paint. An old rocker and chair got a makeover and my newest project is a full size bed (not sure whether it will become a bench or not). I have to get all of these projects out of the way because a workshop has been scheduled for Sat., March 7. Here is a sneak peak of two of the projects. The before and after pictures will be posted on the website soon.
We have acquired a large collection of vintage salt and pepper shakers from 50’s and earlier. They came from an estate in Oakdale, Louisiana. So much variety- animals, fruits and vegetables, characters, vintage items such as pot belly stoves and outhouses. They are made from a variety of materials such as wood, porcelain, plastic, glass, and china. There is something for every collector and are priced very reasonably.
After removing the veneer the top was a little rough so I decided to decoupage an assortment of lace. Then I placed a vintage crocheted doily on top. The doily can be removed and other items could be used instead such as vintage pictures or postcards. I am leaving that up to the buyer. The glass tray sets on top of the table and can be removed to be used as a tray or it could be glued on permanently. This unique coffee table is priced at $125.
