TATTERED TREASURES had visitors from Cedarburg, Wisconsin.
After having a short conversation with Jeff and Jeanine this afternoon, we realized that we had heard of each other before.... in BLOG LAND!!!
We watch Jeanine do the same thing we are doing.... doing something that we LOVE!!!!
She loves CHIPPY SHABBY furniture, etc, in it's original finish!
If you have not done so already, please check out her blog here........
It was so nice meeting Jeanine and her hubbie... here in DECATUR, INDIANA!!!!!!

We are finishing up a few things before our store opens next week!!!
I feel as though everything is under control and there is no need for PANIC, yet!!!
We knew we wanted a check-out counter that had panels... like a door.
Since we have more "stuff" than we do time... (or money), we decided to go on the hunt for ideas in our own stash!!!
We remembered we had a dresser in the shed that we picked up for $25.... It had many drawers... and they were curved, BUT, it was straight from the 70s. It, also, had a few of the legs missing...(from sitting in the shed...)
We decided to rehab the dresser into our check-out counter!!
It would be easier and faster than starting one from scratch!
Deb started with this dresser....
|The drawer was already removed.... I almost forgot the pic!|
And, these resin shelf brackets that we have in our stash because someone was "sick of them".....
Meanwhile... I was painting the dresser the same color as our back doors that are the back drop to this!
I used Websters Chalk Paint Powder that I added to the paint
and didn't have to sand or prime AT ALL!
I then waxed the whole thing with dark wax to make it look old.
|You can see the right side is waxed... and the left is untouched after painting|
And we now have a counter for $25 and some change.
There is more to it.... but it truly is a surprise. I cannot share until opening!!!
