Fill-er Up

Hey guys!  So a friend of mine called me out last night on slacking on the blog!  She is totally right!  I think the Summer might be blog-light as I am struggling to get through the day with 2 children home ALL day.

But....I wanted to show you guys my updated space at Through the Garden Gate.  I dropped a few things off today and saw that people actually bought some stuff!!!  I literally high fived the lady that runs the place on my way out I was so excited...totally nerdy right! 

So here's what the space looks like now, although the two black nightstands on the front right that are mostly cut out of the picture sold but have yet to be picked up.  Can you see the little SOLD sign! 

See that brown table in between the shutters and the black nightstands?!  That is a Ballard Designs table that retails for $289 that I found at Goodwill!! It just needed some Old English to touch up a bunch of scratches and it literally looks brand new!!! 

Found this little bamboo glass top table at Salvation Army and gave it a fresh gold spray paint.

And against my better judgement I put the campaign dresser in there.  Not sure what I was smoking when I made that decision but never the less it's there :(  I hope I find another one to keep for myself soon!  I actually just found this at Salvation Army the same day I got the bamboo table. 

Still not sure what I'm going to do with it but for now it sits in the garage...it's making friends with all the other furniture in there waiting to be fancied up!


  1. So glad stuff is moving moving!!! Thas had got to be an awesome feeling!!!!

  2. Yay! I wish I could come by some of your stuff.

  3. Awesome! I definitely thought about you and your spot in the store on my drive back to NC today, but I was in a bit of a hurry and didn't have the chance to stop by--next time!

  4. The space is looking GREAT! I love that bamboo table you found..but does that surprise you? I am glad you like my chandelier...I thought you might! Don't worry about being jealous...if the shoe were on the other foot I would be SUPER jealous of you! I'm glad we can admit these things....

  5. The space looks great. My two are home for the summer starting tomorrow and I am a little worried how I am going to paint and blog the next two months. I think I might be a little blog lite too.

  6. The space looks awesome and congrats on the sale!! How exciting!!

  7. yay!! your jammin' and, you've got some rocking Goodwills in Richmond!
    I feel the pain of summer with kiddos home, balance & patience (and maybe late night painting)... :-)))

  8. The space looks amazing and so happy you sold stuff! Can't wait to come help craft and of course babysit the kiddies so you can make even more great pieces!

  9. Glad you had some sales. What Salvation Army store do you like? hermitage or mechanicsville? Seems like you find good stuff there!

  10. So exciting that you have your own space..I am jealous...i started my personal shopping business and on one hand I am so thankful that I don't have rent to pay...but on the other..I would LOVE to stock items and have a place of my OWN for clients to come too.
    Anyhoo...I LOVE that little bamboo table! Adorable.
