Completed projects!

I'm finally ready to debut some of the projects I completed before the play started. Yay! My pictures are blurry, though. Which is frustrating.

This summer, I decided to refinish a little end table I got at a local thrift store. It was super 80s dated. At first, I was going to do it to sell, but I decided to try it out in our living room, and am pretty happy with the new layout.
Cheese Puff can't let me take a picture without him front and center (and in pajamas.) I completely refinished the little green table, and redid the top on the sewing machine table.
It was that spotted 80s wood, with a broken raffia bottom, and a glass top. The wood wasn't a great quality, so I made a chalk paint with some of the leftover bathroom paint. Bob cut me a new hexagon for the broken raffia bottom, and I covered with some pretty wallpaper that Ann Wyse gave me. The lamp is one my mom had hanging out on the floor at their cabin. I bought it a new lampshade, and am pretty happy with it.
The homemade chalk paint had a very bumpy texture, so I had to go shabby chic with this table, which frustrated me.
But it still turned out pretty well. The fuzzy pictures don't do it justice.
We covered the sewing table with the same wallpaper. I think it looks cute.

Now, onto my other projects. I decided during the last week of play practice to enter into a craft fair. I really didn't have any stock, though. So I searched on pinterest for craft projects that would sell. And after discussion with Bob, I tried a few out. Two were busts, but I'm happy with the other items.
I made lots of stuffed owls with cute fabric scraps that my aunt has been storing at my grandmother's house. My grandmother and I are both fabric hoarders, so it was nice to use up those little scraps.
They turned out pretty cute. Most of them have coordinating, but not matching fronts and backs. I also made tissue pompoms, which the boys think are really cool. The chair the owls are sitting on is a cool folding chair from the 60s maybe? I picked it up about 2 weeks ago, and Bob helped me fix it up. There are also two little corkboards on the floor.
I still have some nursing capes, so I'm just going to put those back out and hope for the best.
These are jars of homemade lavender oatmeal milk bath. They smell amazing, and I tried with the packaging. I've also made little fabric bags to put them in once they are sold. Just to help cushion them if they sell. I've also got just a few pain pillows left. I made about 4 more with cuter fabric. Fingers crossed.
These are homemade hot chocolate mix.

It's a pretty good mix, and I hope plenty of stock. The booth doesn't come with a table, so I tried to do a set up in our sunroom. It fits within the parameters. I can't carry a big table by myself, and Bob is working that night, so I decided to use our tray tables and other items to hold the products. The boys love our shop. My plan was to have the boys help me sell my wares, and I would pay them if we did well. Well, Little Elvis is going to have a football thing that evening, because everything around here happens on Thursday evenings. I don't think Baby Plum and Cheese Puff can sell for me. Hopefully, everything will run smoothly, and I won't have to step out too much. They are cute, and they are willing. Cheese Puff can talk people up, and maybe Baby Plum can do the math? I'm sure it will work out. I tried one of these a couple of years ago, and sold nothing. I was so sad. I think I know the audience better this time, and I have lots more crafty items. Maybe it will work.

The living room tables look very cute! I'm glad the wallpaper found a good home.

I'm very excited for your craft fair. The owls pillows are fun! I've never done anything like a craft fair, but I enjoy visiting them (especially when I'm without the kids.) I think the booth looks sweet and approachable. I think the many-small-table strategy is working well! I'm crossing my fingers for you.
