Final push for the Flea :)

Happy Tuesday!!!
Well, this is the final week of prep before the flea market. We have never gotten a booth at the flea before so I am both excited and nervous about how it will all turn out (fingers crossed that we sell sell sell). So, this week you will most likely find me out in my front yard finishing up some last minute projects or in the garage tagging my stuff. Down to the wire for sure!

Yesterday we spent the day outside and it was a beautiful sunny day. The kids kept busy by "washing" my car (look at Hayden's face...she's concentrating).
 These really pretty planes kept flying low and doing tricks over our house which made it extra exciting for the kiddos.
Oh, and check out Hayden's choice for summer footwear. Ha ha! ONLY to be worn around the house :)
Ok, back to project mania. My mom had these hideous old-school serving trays in the goodwill pile. These definitely belonged in the donate pile in their original condition. BUT, give me a few minutes and BAM! Revamped into something sell able :)


First one AFTER:

Some triangles cut out of pages from my thrift store atlas, a sharpie, some grey spray paint, mod podge, and spray poly did the trick :)
Second one AFTER:

Hopefully these guys will find new happy homes at the flea!

The other project I finished up was this:

I sprayed the chicken wire gold for that extra glam look. This pic above is me in kindergarten, and below is my mom, grandma, and great aunt "back in the day" enjoying some dessert.

Ok, gotta get back to work now :) Have a great day people!!
