Refinished Gun Display Cabinet

I am so excited to have finished the gun display cabinet that I purchased for $5 at a garage sale a few weeks ago!!

It's a beautiful cabinet, but the wood was too dark for me. I knew it was going to look great painted white!

I added the wood appliques (with wood glue) after sanding, but before painting...

I know....I just can't leave this corner alone!! I am having so much fun playing with it's become my favorite trial & error area!!

What projects are you working on??

I Love Marshall's!

Sometimes when a girl can't find (or can't afford!) the vintage or antique items she wants, she just has to make do with repro. And that is why I simply LOOOOVE Marshall's(also Target, and Michaels)!! Here are some of my favorite finds, picked up for a song:

I actually did find the center dish at a specialty shop, but the other porcelain pieces are from Marshall's, and the clock is from Target.

I found these vases at Marshall's plus the bag of faux fruit for fill

I love apothecary jars, and this repro version from Marshalls fit in with my other assorted finds perfectly. I filled it with potpourri from Target.

I still love all my vintage finds, plus the thrill of the hunt...but it was lots of fun filling in my decor this week!

What made you smile this week??

'Til next time...
