Watcha working on Wednesday and other things

Hi Prim girls,
Do you remember a tutorial that Kris from Simply Prim posted few days ago showing a beautiful peg rack that she made. Well, I got one, my husband made one for me last week but I completed the paint job on it this weekend. I put it at the top of my stairs. I love that piece, it is simply beautiful. Thank you Kris for share it with us.

Look my piece. I used barn red on it because I had too many pieces in mustard tones and I think it looks great with the wall color. ( Wall Cream color is more darker than the picture).

In a previous post I showed you a few pieces that I bought in a GW last week, here are the makeovers of two of them.

The large peg rack......I painted it yellow ochre over black. Sanded and stained to give a worn look.
Remember the strainer ( it cost me only 50 cents) and look it now. I made this shoo fly following Char's tutorial instructions that appear in the last Mercantile Gathering magazine.

These are new goodies that I found in the TS yesterday,
This IKEA lamp with shade only cost me .62 cents ( including tax). It will be receive a "prim makeover" very soon.
The beautiful prim jug was $1.25 ( including tax). Not bad for a signed pottery piece in mint condition. It is so cute and is about 6" tall. And the last piece is this wooden bowl. It is beautiful and had a nice patina. But it was the most expensive of my findings $3.59. LOL

Few weeks ago, I requested this set to Kindra , she is so sweet as seller and it comes so quickly. Love this set. Can't wait to order one for Winter. Thank you Kindra...
Today is Watcha working on Wednesday in Leslie's blog (http://sweets-mycountryhome.blogspot.com). I never discard wood pieces without thinking if the size of the piece can help me in the next project.
Well, I found two square pieces that I used to make additional Fall blocks. I hand painted pumpkins on it. Look the scrap pieces now....

Also, this weekend Michael's offered a 50% coupon that I used to buy a little cupboard. Today , I was working with the painting process. I will show you the finished piece in the afternoon. Now, it is in this step.

This is the piece.... painted, stained and finished.

Love how it looks, I want another one!

Bye, Bye and see you soon....
