Cute Lemonade Cart!

Hi!  I am so excited to team up with my favorite bloggers for this month's furniture theme:

A cart is furniture, right?  And check out that cute Lemonade 25cent stencil!
Every little girl needs a cute little lemonade stand and my little one has already put it to good use...She made $3.25 in 30 minutes yesterday (not bad for a 6 year old!)

Here is what we started out with!   NOT PRETTY!  but for $3 I'm game!
After some messing around with the top and some serious sanding I decided it was best to just paint to top with KILZ primer and then ModPodge some paper on it.
The KILZ is to stop the rust from bleeding and the ModPodge is to camouflage the bumps on the metal.
I had some left over paper from my
Household Manual Binder and placed it right on top!  Liking it so far!
I spray painted the rest of the trays in a bright yummy yellow and cleaned and buffed up the legs.
I traced a stencil and then painted it in with green paint.
There's the
I guess my little one is stuck with the price for awhile ( or I'll just grab the paints again when inflation strikes! )
Are you thirsty yet?
Add a cute little chair to relax in and grab a glass of lemonade.
Now all that we need is some more customers so come on over!
 Thanks for stopping by our Cute Lemonade Cart today.

Nautical Headboard Bench Makeover

Don't you just love the beach? 

I have always enjoyed strolling barefoot in the sand gathering seashells, sand dollars and starfish.
It's fun to find that perfect treasure and take it home as a sweet reminder of a summer vacation.

Now that the title gave it away and you have already gotten a sneak peek at my new bench creation, let me back up a bit.

Waterfall Style Antique Chifferobe Wardrobe

Recently I stopped by at the last hour of a church sale and spotted this sad lonely dresser. 

Everyone was passing it up because it was in a despicable shape. 
I kind of felt bad for the person who donated it might have to take it back or even worse send it to the burn pile.

Get Well Soon Gift: Basket full of Sunshine!

Our Uncle Fred is in the hospital for a few days and not feeling well  :(  

It's so hard to be there for him when we are a few states away.   What to do, what to do...

The kids and I decided that we would send him a special Get Well Gift:
