A farm house table, sheet music dresser & my first show

If this is your first time here... welcome!

It's been a whirlwind week and it isn't over yet. Not that I'm complaining!
I'm SO excited for my first show this weekend at the Urban Finds Christmas Extravaganza! First a bit on that...

Location    Urban Finds (Lotus Event Center)
                 2134 East Grand Ave
                 Des Moines, Iowa

Date/Time: This evening is invited guests only (that's YOU!)- Friday, December 2nd  6-8pm
                 Friday night is not open to the general public so you can get the best finds before everyone else!

                 Public Hours: Saturday 12/3 & Sunday 12/4  9am-4pm

Admission: Free. However, we are accepting cleaning supplies or cash donations for the Hawthorne House
                  (a local women/children's shelter).

Here's a sneak peek of my booth:

 I hope you can join us! I've been scoping out the goods of the other vendors and there are definitely some good finds!

So if you notice in the above pictures, I have a sheet music dresser (inspired by  Miss Mustard Seed), a striped Duncan Phyfe table, as well as a farm house table. I'm so proud to say that my mom and I built the farm house table ourselves! My very first build project...using real tools.... I've always been a bit scared intimidated by the big saws/power tools so this one was a big deal to me. Plus, it was fun building it with my mom. The original building plan came from Ana White Homemaker. She has some fantastic things over there. Definitely check her blog out!

Back to the point, sorry. While I don't have time to post tutorials on those things today (still scrambling with the last minute projects for the show!) I promise to post more specific details on those soon!

I promise to be more consistent with my posts after this show so stay tuned...

  2. @Chris. Thank you so much! Apparently you were sent to me for a reason...went to your website and right to the entry on quitting your soda habit. You were speaking directly to me! How'd ya know?! ;)
