It's About Time!!!

Hi all it's been awhile!!! I have been busy creating new art pieces. It is a lot of fun, but takes up most of my time during the day.
I have decided to do a new kind of thing for my blog. I am going to show and report on my flea market and garage sale finds, and how I use them in my home.
Let us start with this awesome mantel/fireplace surround that I found last Sunday at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  It is over 100 years old and has the perfect chippy, worm holes, and aquaish color to it.
I am going to use it behind my bed as a headboard.  First I need to clean and wax it, then raise it up a bit so it's the perfect height for the bed.  When it's all done and in place I will show and tell.
Have a great weekend!!! Missed you guys!!

Sounds like a great plan. I'd love to try something like that but I can hear my hubby saying ...but the paint chips will fall in the bed:)
