Chippy White Wednesday

I was planning to post last week but I was attending a 6 day rug hooking workshop in Missouri. Even though I took the pictures of my treasures found at the Junk Bonanza in Shakopee Minnesota a few days before I went out of town, I couldn't find time to get them posted last week so here goes.....almost 2 weeks after the show....

(The rug hooking workshop was just too much fun!)

I've never been to this show before so I walked around the entire place so I could absorb it all first. Then I came across this booth! The Hog Shed from Lester Prairie, Minnesota. Not only do I love the name but I found the best stuff in their booth! This cool old twin washtub caught my eye first but I already have one, there was an old mirror leaning against it not shown here because I bought it before I took the picture!

A picture of The Hog Shed gals...I wish I had asked their names... they were the nicest gals!
I loved their booth!

I'm looking for an old white chippy painted long skinny cupboard door frame for a project and I also have been collecting old mirrors especially if they are beveled or etched. I might remove the heavy old mirror if my husband can figure a way to hang it horizontally and them I'll have the frame for my project. This is one heavy mirror!

Then I noticed this piece of old trim and I HAD to have it! I didn't go there looking for white things but it just happened! I plan to hang the old porch trim from an earlier post on our living room wall and then hang this a little bit higher above that piece. I like that it has a sort of narrow shelf on top so that I can set a few small things on it. It's 46" wide and probably was above a door or a window in it's past life.
I really like this piece!
Isn't that the best crackled white paint!!!!

After I paid for my 2 items I asked the gals if I could leave them there while I shopped. When I came back to their booth I spotted this old iron head board. The foot board was already sold and I would have loved to have bought that too but I'm so glad I got the head board.

While I was walking around I picked up the old wood stove part...I'll screw it to the wall or an old piece of wood and I can hang something on it. I love old glass doorknobs and the set here had one purple glass doorknob from the sun baking on it for years. All the better! I love that one is purple glass and the other the original clear. And of course one more lonely glass doorknob that I'll attach to a rod and use as a garden decoration.

Thanks for visiting!

Thanks Kathleen from Faded Charm for another White Wednesday!

Hi Faye ~ Wow! Does that ever look like a great show. Talk about Hog Heaven:):):) I used to have a brick & mortar shop before my webstore and I chose the space mainly for its purple glass doorknobs (just like yours). when I closed up - I so wanted to take them with me - its good to know I may find a set out there somewhere - Happy WW!

Hi Faye,

I've got all the supplies for rug hooking and did a little bit a few years ago. I always wind up with a sewing needle or a crochet hook in my hand though. I want to do everything! ha ha I truly love rug hooking and hope that I'll drift back to it. I'm one of those that has to complete small-ish creations..I admire those that can make large stuff that takes a good while to complete.

I love all the stuff you got at the Junk Bonanza.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing such great stuff to look at for White Wednesday. I'd love to have you pop in for a visit when you have a moment!

Happy Day,
Stephanie ♥
