Sacramento Craft and Flea Marketplace

I wanted to share a few pictures from the Market I attended on Sunday, May 22nd.
It was a little cool but still a nice day.  
Unfortunately, not a lot of shoppers out,
I guessing because it this Market is only in its 3rd month. 

Even though not a huge turnout the day was a success and lots of fun.  

I also had the opportunity to meet a couple of ladies who will be participating in our 
at Silva's Sheldon Inn coming this Fall!

This is a Bird frame I made for my friend, owner of Bluebird Designs, 
I think I'm going to making some more to sale in my booth!

*Holly Paint*

This little French Provincial Nightstand was FREE on Craigslist.  
Though when something is listed Free then usually that means it needs
a little more than just paint.  
The top of the nightstand is particle board so when I sanded it the top was not smooth 
and couldn't just be painted.

So I used some fabric and good ol' Modge Podge and it did the trick!  
I painted the body of the nightstand white and the top a dark gray.  
I used a tone on tone white fabric with little flowers on it to Modge Podge to the top. 
The gray paint underneath was perfect because it allowed the flowers to pop out! 
I then sealed the top with Polyacrylic.

No that is not a bad spot on the top (bottom, right hand corner)  just my camera that has been dropped more than once...time to think about a new camera!!

Another "camera spot" this time on the top left corner!  This spot tends to move around!!

Of course I forgot to take a "before" picture of the table but  we have all seen them before...though I did get a snapshot of the chairs.  

The table came from a friend who was cleaning out props from his store...
the chairs were roadside finds.

Though after a little paint they look like a perfect set! 
I painted them a combination of white and light turquoise, then distressed 
and aged with stain. 

If only this set would seat more then 4 people then I would be dining at it tonight...
but it doesn't so off to Craigslist it goes!
