For Sale, The Shed vendor booth

Early August booth update.

Hey friends!

How has your Summer been so far? I have accomplished so much! Every Summer I usually look forward to taking one big road trip with my family, but this Summer instead of one big road trip, I have taken many smaller road trips around Wisconsin and Minnesota!  Sometimes, just adventuring locally is more than enough, if you have the right people by your side!

With that said, I have also been focusing more on my business! I finally have a home office and have spent this whole past week organizing my art supplies and my workshop, so I can do more quality projects, at a faster pace !

It is so nice to sit here and write to you, with an amazing view of our property, the neighboring farm fields and while watching our little chickens running around outside of my office window!

Yesterday, my son R and I went to our mini store at The Shed and added tons of new ‘smalls’ all around our booth!  I am having so much fun having my own little nook to decorate and sell items from.  I continue to pray that God blesses that little area and that all those who purchase goods from us know that there is a lot of love, prayer and power packed into that space.

I still plan to update the space with unique shelving along the back wall, which will be a better way to display all of the smalls that I like to curate and sell.

Let me know if there is anything specific that YOU are looking for! I absolutely love hunting for treasures for people and am honored to help in any way that I can!

Suggestions for my booth? Let me know that as well!  I want to continue to make my mini store better every single day, to make your shopping experience even better every time you visit!  I want my booth to be one that you will tell your friends about, that you will return to , and that you can;t wait to get to, to see what is new! How can I achieve that?  Please share below in the comments if you have any ideas!  I am secure in knowing that change and critiques are always for my good!

Below you will find a few updated photos of my booth, as of yesterday morning! Enjoy and remember, I add new, unique items weekly and sometimes even bi-weekly, so check back often!

 

Remember, you can shop my curated, custom and vintage goods, 7 days a week at The Shed at 1519 Mayer Road in Altoona, Wisconsin. They are open until 5:00 pm every day!

Announcing: Fall Market on the farm 2017

fallmarket2017

Hey all! I am so excited to announce that I will be having another Flea Market sale again this Fall!  I am so blessed that my first spontaneous and last minute sale last October was a huge success.  Thanks to your support, I am encouraged to host yet another fall sale.

This years sale will be even bigger and better. The last sale I threw together in literally 1.5 weeks, so you can imagine how wonderful our sale will be this Fall, with months and months to plan, prepare and create custom pieces for your home!

There will be free coffee and a seating area this year as well, so you can come and enjoy our property before or after your shop, or take a little relaxation break in between.

Stay tuned for more details and information as the date gets closer!

Be sure to save the date: October 7th 10am-4pm. This is a one day only sale! However, sale may extend to Sunday October 8th as well, depending on turnout and weather.  Sale date may change, due to weather.  Announcements and updates regarding the sale will be posted on the Endless Acres Farmtiques Facebook page.

DIY Before & After, DIY Decor, DIY Inspiration, DIY on a budget

Serene dresser refresh.

‘Don’t be afraid of change, you may lose something good, but you may gain something even better.’

We have moved several times as a family, from rental apartments, to rental country homes, to home ownership in town and now home ownership in the country.   As we have moved, each home calls me to a different style.  Our first home was filled with dark, cabin themed, rustic styled colors and decor.  Our current home is a little farm house on 5 acres and I am aiming at styling it like an old farmhouse cottage with a bit of a soft rustic flare.   Living on a small budget, each time we moved and styles changed and evolved, I couldn’t go out and buy all new furniture and decor, so I had to make do with what we already had from the past 10 or so years- and that is when I started doing DIY.

This dresser is a great example of how my style has grown and also fits along nicely with my new approach to simplistic design and minimizing this year in my home.
Originally the dresser was dirty white when I purchased it for $10 from a thrift store and was one of my very first dresser makeover projects!   I love the color mustard yellow, but again want to aim for a serene feel in my home and felt that the mustard color on such a big piece wasn’t working at this ol’ farmhouse any more.
So, two days ago I got the motivation to paint it- again!   My 11 year old son was such a big help and took of all of the drawer pulls and knobs!  He maybe complained once or twice, but he still completed the task and I thanked him with a bowl of cookies n’ cream ice cream (wouldn’t you help me for a bowl of ice cream too!?)

As I was planning the idea in my head, a whole 5 minutes before I got out my paint brushes and got to work, I also decided the green lamps didn’t look right in their current space any more either.  I have always wanted big clear , or neutral colored glass lamps- but again, budget friendly decor, doesn’t allow for the purchase of 2 new lamps every time your design style changes.  So I decided to paint those as well.  Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.  I do that well.

Here is the dresser before It was refreshed;

Here it is as it stands now in a beautiful grey from Sherwin Williams (The same color I used in my kitchen and dining room)
