I am really enjoying the fact that my creative gift has a huge outlet. I can choose any item that I want at Lost and Found Thrift  and repurpose it. I give a special thank you to Cheryl and Rex for this amazing opportunity. 

Above is a fun window box that I painted with chalk paint then added some fun flower stencil in French. I think this would look so great with some red geraniums in it sitting on a window ledge.

I have had the chance to recreate some sweet shelves.

I thought that this one would look great in a little girls room, actually it could go into any room depending on your style. I painted the trim in a bright pink and then a soft pink all over. Then I glued on some vintage wall paper with roses on the sides. A quick touch with the sander gave it a great patina, then I added white wax all over.

Above are two shelves that I used my patina technique on, if you are interested in it just click on patina. I was tempted to hang the white one above my sink but I resisted the temptation. lol

I really fell hard for this sweet milking stool. I gave it a little crowning touch.

 This large tote is so great. Just add three quart Ball jars with flowers to make it a perfect touch for the dinning room table.

I am proud to say that everything that I do is all hand made and 100% repurposed. I fill like I am helping to do my part in custom recycling and enjoying it as well.

  2. You are so talented, my friend, and the talent shines through in all of your creations. The milking stool is darling and your shelves are a work of art 🙂

    Love and hugs to you!


  3. Love the patina and crowning touch on the little stool. Good luck in your new venture! When you love what you do, it is such a blessing and you are bound to be successful!


  4. Jo, these treasures are, well lets first say, with your creative talents and gifts, they have become treasures. I’m absolutely thrilled to the brim for you and this adventure you’ve been given.


  5. Great little projects and springy too. I loved doing things when i had my brick and mortar…because I could go outside of my own style and colors. Fun—-enjoye, thanks, Sandi


  6. Jo, you are in your element sweetie! Being able to pick items and work your magic on them is wonderful. All are darling, but the little milk stool is my very favorite!


  7. Anne, I just really admire that you can see a diamond in the rough! Seeing what you do sets such a great example for those of us who don’t have that same given sense. 🙂 Your shelf reminded me of a plate rack hidden in a closet upstairs that needs to be put to use somewhere in my house.
