This is a chandelier that I found that had no wires so i added the green crystals and candles.
This  little crystal lamp was in serious need of a cute lampshade...a little ribbon did the trick.
Everybody remember this??? A cute little candle light made from old fencing, tiny glass pots for candles, ribbon and some sweetpeas for color.
These stools were in great shape, just needed a little TLC and a light yellow paint.
We made a couple of these laundry room shelves out of wahsboards and old wood.
I found these enamel coved metal bases and attached some old columns that I had. After giving them a three coat paint treatment It looks like they were made for each other. I have three of them of varying heights.
Here is a picture of the bases on the columns.
Here is a simple project. A small metal table base with a metal tray for a top.
This really doesnt count as a conservatory but its the closest I have been able to come so far. Filled with a tiny bird bath, crystals for water, moss, plants and rocks it looks like a mini garden.
We all know that no sale is complete without one of my picket fence planters.

Well it is time for MY big show. My favorite Antique show...the Three Speckled Hens in Templeton Ca... is this weekend and I have been gearing up for it by stockpiling furniture and doing projects. Here is just a sampling of some of the projects I have done recently. I will post pictures of my booth when I get it set up on Saturday. Wish me luck!

Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos

MimiToria writes: Georgia- I missed this post before your sale, but saw that your first day was awesome. Congrats on that, and hopefully the rest of the sale was great as well.
Just love the green bling on the chandelier. Have any extra you'd like to sell to me, for vintage jewelry redesign? Just a couple would be great, if you have any spare left.
Also, loved the picket fence planter you made too. Those are my two favorites, of all of the great projects you did.

georgiamoon writes: Wow everybody...thanks for all the encouragement. I have been working hard and the first day of the show was such a success that I am going in this morning to set up a whole new BOOTH. It was the end of the day I had only two larger pieces left and had only a little stool to sit on. I have taken photos to share but wanted to thank you all for being so supportive. Janis, I AM only about 3 hours away and would LOVE to have you come up!!! I may put you to work decorating the shop though...I just love your style and could use some of your elegant touches. What do you say??? I can't pay much but we would have some FUN!!! LOVE to you all, Georgia Posted: 9:04 am on May 3rd

Me again.......would you estimate that your store is about 3hours from Los Angeles??? My husband has been doing a lot of work in L.A. and I might go with him one of these days and take a road trip to your store.

fellowjunker writes: Yes, funny thing Lani I could have sworn that I posted on this as well. At least we are losing it together!!
Your projects are amazing Geo. I don't know how you get so much done---you must work 24/7!!!! You find the BEST junk ever and always re-vamp it in the most fun and creative ways. Best of luck at your sale!!

CottageElements writes: I swear I posted on this link already and it's no-where to be found! I think I'm a little fickle lately! Hope you have an absolutely awesome sale, Geo! Looks like you've been a busy little girl! Be sure to let us know how it all went.

shabbychick writes: Geo...what great stuff! It looks like you've been working like a crazy woman (that's what we do, isn't it??). I love the fence light - I've got some fencing in my basement just waiting to be converted into one of these. And, I love all those green crystals!!!! I know your show is going to be a huge success!

Thanks for sharing - and can't wait to see pics of your space.


P.S. About the conservatory - really nicely decorated...just think of this one as "baby steps"'ll build one of your own and it'll be fabulous! Posted: 7:38 pm on May 1st
JunkArchitect writes: Hey Georgia,
What a bunch of great projects you’ve created. I wish I was there but it’s a 47-hour drive from my house. If it was only 41-hours away I would consider going for the ride. Good luck and I can’t wait to checkout the photos from the show.

I absolutely LOVE the Washboard Shelf...I'm so ready to create one! The metal base/table tray is too cute, and the little candle light made from old fencing is most adorable...I SO LOVE YOUR SYTLE!!

Best of luck at the Antique Show!

Take care,
