New Finds 02-12-2010 (Updated)

I just have a few things I found this week to show you all...

I have had this box for awhile now... I did the ole ebony stain treatment on it to darken it up... so much better... of course I forgot the before pic...

Small lamp that is going to get a major makeover...

the after... now a perfect prim piece

it can also be used without the shade with a silicone bulb

nice little white dish... great as a candle holder

hobnail... dish

I am not sure what this was originally but I have a plan for it...

updated.... the after... it made the perfect handle for this mold.

painted, sanded then applied ebony stain... glued to mold
the front view....vintage aluminum mold...
I found this awhile ago and just couldn't find a use for it...

a well needed clip on lamp... I have been on the look out for one of these for awhile...
perfect for the workshop

Isn't this the cutest bookcase... I almost feel quilty wasting it on what I have planned for it...
I am on the lookout for another one, then this one will go in my booth.

I also found this cute little handmade wood desk...It will be getting a makeover... I would like to do the chalkboard paint on the top of this one... it is going to need a good sanding so I have to wait to start this one...

Have a great day and stay warm... I am off to my nice clean workshop to do my magic.

Thank you for the sweet comment. I love your blog. And thanks for stopping by ours too!

The color of my bedroom is...Swallow's nest. I don't have the number. But I got it at walmart and they have the color swatch. I had them use Kilz interior semi-gloss. (LOVE KIlz...my favorite paint) the formula is B-1424, C-2442, I-8, if that helps!? Hope you can find it if not let me know and I will check mine out!

Nice finds and makeovers, as usual. I'm loving the bookcase and desk, can't wait to see what you do with them. I found a couple dressers and a desk curbside last week and spent the weekend working on 2 of them but didn't quite finish, as Valentines day got in the way! Envying your nice clean workshop too!
