working in white...

We spent the weekend
working on projects for the upcoming sale.

This is what the driveway looks like
when we get serious about painting.
Everywhere you look there is something to do.
Gotta love those treehouse shots!


These chairs are some of my favorites.
There is a matching table.






All of the details



And just for fun
I had to add in some pretties.


It's been another fun White Wednesday.
Check out all of the wonderful whites
See Faded Charm for the links.
That list is getting really long.
I think I'll start at the bottom this week!

Wow Rene, this is a lot of work... I did notice from your other post awhile back you have a spray paint sprayer... how do you like that? I've been thinking of getting one so I don't have to do it by hand. I have painted almost everything in my home and for the bigger projects I think that would be a good thing to have one.

Take Care and I hope you do well for you opening-

That's not a driveway...that's a parking lot! ;o)

So much work...gotta love a paint gun though, huh? I recently bought one & am amazed at how much time & work it saves on even the small projects.

Very, very impressive! Wow what a lot of work you have done. And I know behind the scenes there is so much to do to get ready for a sale. Do you have it in the barn?
Good luck and be sure and take lots and lots of pictures for us!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I can't imagine that you won't have a mile long line waiting to get in. I would be there, right near the front of the line. What beautiful creations! The chairs are perfect for my table. Wish you the best with your sale.

June said...

Oh boy Rene, you have been so busy. Everything looks so beautiful. I know that your sale will be a huge success. How I wish I could come. Some of those pieces should be in my home with some of their kindred, don't you think?
Have a great sale,
June

I just wish I could say to you ....Put a price on it and I will come and get it all!!
What an inspiration you are. I got ideas just from the bed on buckets and the chairs set up the way you did. Someone is very smart.
No gravel on your furniture legs.lol
I just love the farm sale idea. Maybe on day. Good luck with yours.
God bless your little creative socks off!

You take the best photos. I just love them. Some of my finials I've gotten on Ebay. They do seem hard to find around here. Thanks for all your nice comments.

Take care,

Barb said...

Absolutely amazing what you get done!! And all so beautiful, and definitely white!!
And what a great system for spraying some of those things...
up on buckets, boards going thru chairs and all.

If i ever get a sprayer, and place to do it, i'm making notes of this.

Beautiful, Rene'! Love it all especially the tree top shot. You have gorgeous items and all your (and hubby's) hard pays off. Is it still fun? I always vow that it all ends when I stop having fun. How about you?
