FUNctional from discards . . . 
          is always my favorite
Can't part with old pallets and have a couple bins of table legs
THIS IS WHY . . . never know what creation is next! 
Thanks to Krista & Dana at West Tischer Cottage
I scored this adorable old drawer

This old crate is a  keeper.  Needs a FUNction.
I'm still working on that . . .

Playing with lots of shutters!

A Vintage Gem! Don't you wonder about it's history? It came from southern Minnesota.
No doubt some strong coffee and a homemade donut or two were shared on it . . . 
1950s grey & white formica

drop leaf table
  30"L x 18"W x 30"H when dropped
The leaves are each 14"
so offers a 46" long x 30" wide
table surface when extended

($85 table only ~ no chairs)

Before and After...

and this time its NOT a piece of furniture.  
I love this time of year when the colors turn and then fade.   
 I'm wild about ORANGE and love these Lucifer Crocosmia [kro-KOZ-mee-ah]

To me they are now just as pretty as when in bloom so I had to bring em inside to my kitchen window.

OKAY now on to furniture . . .  
Just the BEFORE pics now as I'm finally home to give them some attention in the form of paint.  Wahoo! GARAGE THERAPY is ahead this week. . .
     Sweet little storage cabinet could fit anywhere!
          20"L x 12"D x 34"H
and this super console could be a nice entry piece or sofa table 48"L x 16D x 28H

See you back here later for the AFTER photos!

Lovely Afternoon...

included a beautiful drive through rolling hills and horse country to Elizabeth CO for a stroll of the charming shops on Main Street 

YES!! that is a "For Rent" sign in the window.  Hmm...

The Carriage Shoppes

Great browsing and a few things home with me in the truck
