Phew! I’m pooped. I spent 4 days getting ready and then 2 long days at the Lunenburg Craft Fair but it was super duper fun! I thought I would share a few before/afters of some of the pieces we had at the Fair. I’ve been crazy busy with a few other projects (cottage reno, work projects) so I didn’t have any furniture prepared for the show. Not the smartest move.
I had 1 day to buy and prep some pieces and 3 days to paint, finish and lug to the show. Not a lot of time!
I bought several pieces from my new favourite stomping grounds in Lunenburg – Mom’s Buy and Sell (she has wicked cool stuff at great prices) Here are a few of the pieces I picked up! I apologize for the yucky pictures, I was on a super tight schedule, no photo ops were allowed. Check out the great pieces I picked up. These are just a few pieces. All were painted in 2 1/2 days. Phew!
It got a little crazy in my cottage!
The pew was finished in MMS Eulalie’s Sky and finished in hemp oil. Yes, thats a big gallon of Hemp Oil, and yes, I use a lot of Hemp Oil. A lot. It’s my fav (ps..for those asking the pew sold)
This lil side table came out sweet sweet sweet – it was finished in Fusion Mineral Paint Lily Pond. See the before up there on the first picture.
I also picked up this sweet hutch. I wanted one large pice to use to display my paints.
and after , painted in MMS Tricycle Red. My tiny cottage was FULL of furniture. Excuse the mess!
and a quick snap of how we used it as a display at the Craft Fair. This pieces is currently FOR SALE at Mom’s Buy and Sell 229 Lincoln Street, Lunenburg.
The vintage mirror in the above picture is one of my favs. It’s old, and oh so pretty. (Its currently available at Front Porch Mercantile in Moncton)
I painted and/or made EVERY single thing you see here in 3 days, including the signs, the bunting, the furniture, the step stools, mirrors, all the displays…phew. It was a lot of painting, but totally fun!
You can see the lil yellow rocker here, it was completed in Mustard Seed Yellow.
Those sweet lil blue chairs sold in like 5 mins. Cute right?
I painted this display chair at 6:30 am on the day of the show. Nothing like last minute. But it was a beautiful morning to paint by the sea.
Paint changes everything. It’s an easy peasy change. If you have pieces you have been wanting to “update” just do it. It’s so worth it!
What have you been painting lately, or what have you wanted to paint?
Leave me a message and let me know, I love to hear from you!
Have a super day, I’m going to go rest my painting arm now. :)
