This is a chalkboard made out of an antique frame that I painted and roughed up to look very old!! I do believe it is very old, but it was gold and I don't do gold very well!! It's a rather large piece it measures 34Wx 27H. I'm selling it for $35.00. It would look great anywhere in a home. This is another great piece I love and won't be heartbroken if it doesn't sell!
Have a great day! So sorry this one sold today!!


I love, love, love to create chalkboards and bulletin boards out of cabinet door fronts!! I go to my local re-store (habitat for humanity) and pick out the wood door fronts and bring them home! I sand and paint the doors, add the cork board covered in cloth and then the fun part! I collect bits of vintage brass or rusty old parts and place them on my bulletin boards to add interest. This one is solid brass and I painted it to look old and worn. The pins on the board are covered with an antique bracelet I took apart and glued onto the pins! This is one of my favorite boards, I am selling it, but I won't be heartbroken if it doesn't sell! I'm selling for $35.00 if anyone is interested! This one sold today!
Have a great journey today!

I've had a wonderful time redoing these small frames! They were all found at estate sales and the lace that I inserted in the frame is antique. I added glitz with estate sale jewelry, so each of these pieces are unique and one of a kind! They range in price from $3 for the smallest to $6. They would be adorable as a vignette, all together in one area, add your own pictures !
Really Great Bulletin Board Made from an old frame I picked up at the local woman's center and an antique coffee bag from Mount Dora. I put cork board in the back of the coffee bag! It's a large piece 27"Wx33H. I'm selling for $35.00. Great piece for home office or anywhere in the home! This one sold today!

These are some of my Vintage Remix pieces that I've created from estate sales! I've had a blast hunting and gathering all the different bits and baubles to create these beauties!! They are all for sale for $15.00 a piece. I'm planning on starting an etsy store soon!!

When Pigs Fly!! Great store in Mount Dora, FL! If you've never been GO! It's on the main street Donnely that runs right thru the middle of town! I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of this store and she's inspirational! I struck up an instant friendship with her and a friend of hers, which I adoringly call "Sweet Pea!" They instantly bought some of my remix pieces and I brought the haul up the following week! Thank You, Dawn for believing in my abilities! You will forever go down in the history of my creative business as my first sale!!

March 13th!! How time flies!

These are some beautiful picture frames that I got at auction!! They were a gaudy gold and I painted and ruffed them up a bit. What do you think?? I've been collecting some old pieces as well from my exploits in Mount Dora, FL! The capital of salvage. I'll show you in a few more posts what I got and what I made!
I believe I'm going to try an etsy store as soon as I get a few more pieces to sell! This frame will fit a 5x7 canvas!
Enjoy! Marisa
