Christmas Sleds

Update 11/29/17:  I’ve included three more decorated sleds at the bottom of this post. Last year I found an old sled at an antique store and decorated an ice skate to hang from the sled.  I have this in my entryway at home and have no plans to sell it just yet.  This sparked my interest… Continue reading Christmas Sleds

Stand Mini-Makeover

I purchased this stand recently from a fellow junk collector.  The top was stained a dark java color, but the wood did not take the stain evenly.  She had painted the legs white. Most of the hard work, was done for me.  I didn’t have any java stain, but I did have a dark walnut,… Continue reading Stand Mini-Makeover
