* Upcycled projects *

I am in love with diy and upcycled projects. But I never seem to get any done. I could spend days on Pinterest – even go without eating – NOT. If I only accomplished 1/22 of 1% of the ideas I would be crafting day and night for the rest of my life. I would love to find a flea/antique market where things would sell. Right now I am in 2 different ones but basically I am paying storage. Made $20 this month — wow I am in the big money now. Decided that since I am not making money I would drop out of one. Moved all the stuff out a couple of days ago. Then went down to the other one to pick up my money for the month. Only to find out that one is closing at the end of the month. So I went from 2 spaces to no spaces. Maybe I will reconsider the one I just moved out of.:???:

Every time I run across a piece of furniture that I can see how great it would look if I reinvented it I grab it up – it has to be cheap or free of course. So far my barn is full. So much “stuff” no space left to work. Told Becca (granddaughter staying to take care of me while recovering from car accident) that we just need to clean out my studio and have an indoor garage sale. Make more money in a shorter time – besides get rid of a lot of my clutter. My daughter has told me I can’t die until I get my house and barn cleaned out. By the way she isn’t talking about dirt – she means stuff.  Guess I will live to be 200.

One of the projects that I would love to do is to repaint an old chest to look like old suitcases. Check out the link below.


Guess I will start tagging some of my “treasures” for my flea market space in Joplin that I just rented. Maybe I can sell something in a bigger town. Wish me luck.;-)
