~Got Some Redo's Done~

Good afternoon everyone!
Another sunny but cool day today but I went out back and checked on some plants to see if they survived another winter and how thrilling to see the green shoots sticking up:)
Yesterday I stained all my GW finds that I showed on another post and I'm happy with how they turned out. Here is the shelf that I found for $1.99, love how it turned out and couldn't wait to add some prims to it. I hung it here just for now, I'll probably move it but for now it's okay! I had to take the pictures at this angle because of the sun thur the window...it looks so prim I think.
Here is a closer look at the stain on it also the the cross stitched ornaments that I won from Angie this winter...just love them and finally a place to see them all the time! I also got a chuckle when I placed this old tin of cloves on the shelf...I was hunting for some in my cupboard when I was grunging candles and here I had some all the time right on my hoosier shelf, the tin is about half full:)

Also bought a wood knob at Lowes but they only had one size...but this will do until I find a smaller one. Just can't believe how neat and old it looks:)

I also want to take the time to say what great bloggers you all are...the ideas you share, projects and love that you all show is so appreciated, enjoy your spring day!


  1. Rondell,

    I love your new/old shelf and I love the color. Your fly screen also turned out great.


  2. Rondell~Your $1.99 shelf looks fantastic!
    And your fly cover...It looks like it has been around for ages!
    I love finding a great bargain. And just think, when we are shopping at the GW, we are supporting American industries!

  3. Rondell, the shelf looks great there! You did such a nice job on the painting and distressing.
    And I LOVE your clock! May I ask where you found it? I have been looking for something to replace my old livingroom clock, but haven't found anything I like. But I really love your's!
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. As usual, Rondell, everything looks so wonderful! You have such a knack for these things...

  5. Rondell,

  9. Rondell-I am glad you like the fly screen. The knob looks good on it.I will post a picture of my goodies from you when I get my camera back from my daughter.
