Painted Pumpkins, recent projects and acquisitions

As soon as the brutal Texas Summer was history I decided to paint my old faux pumpkins with various mixtures of chalk paint.  A quick coat of clear latex and pumpkins.  
This little table has been around the house for a few years.  We 've  sold so much at Shabby Friends lately I felt that I needed to fill some holes.  I painted the base with ASCP Old White.  The top is painted with silver, then stenciled and waxed with ASCP Dark.  

I finally got around to preparing this old medicine cabinet to sell.   It needs to be mounted into the stud space in a wall.  

I painted the inside a country blue. 

I've been collecting little turkeys and chickens for a few years.  I love
 getting them out for Thanksgiving.
Here is small sample of the most recent acquisitions for Shabby Friends.

I love this clarinet.  It is a Normandy #4.  It was made in France and sold
 to the
US for student use.  c1953.

An old coal shuttle.

I Must have priced this cute bird cage too low.  It sold in two days.

I'm not sure what this is, but I love it's "rustyness".

Wouldn't this look great in a Victorian bedroom?


  1. I would have bought that bird cage in a heart beat!! Hugs --

  2. Love how your little table turned out and I'm drooling over the pink lamps. Thanks for sharing. Peggy

  3. I love your table too, Cynthia! Also LOVE the old coal shuttle - is it all wood or are parts of it metal? Do you still have the beautiful white ironstone pitcher that you pictured sitting on the sewing machine you refinished?
