Booger Nose

I’m still here. I hate everyone, but I’m still here.

I’m at home today with a sinus infection and an upper respiratory infection, awesome. Although I’m not getting much done.. I do finally have time to update my blog. Where do I start? I’ve been so busy! Bar, furniture, classes, projects, vintage market, baking, anythingIcanfitinmyday. I have so much to fill you in on. I’ll never get to it all in one post, but I’ll try.

So we (my mother-in-law and I) hosted the second Vintage Market this past October – what a great turnout! We had so many great vendors and everything was so cutely decorated for fall. My booth was almost completely sold out by noon – what a great day! Thank you to everyone who came out to support our event!1415656072328 (2)1415655979096 14156560150381415656115267 1415656320342

My head hurts.

Okay what’s next… the bar. So we finally opened the bar – Bierkeller Tavern & Eatery – and things are going great. We are so busy every night, and everyone really seems to be enjoying it! We did most of the work ourselves and even made our own penny top bar! I’ve gotten a lot of questions on the penny top bar, and it’s so much easier than it looks! Simply use Elmers glue to glue all of your pennies down on your surface. Once that is dry, brush on a layer of epoxy. And after that is dry, pour the rest of the epoxy on. The epoxy is pretty easy to work with – it self levels so you don’t have to worry about making it all even. We bought the epoxy from HERE. If you’re interested in creating something with a penny top – or anything you want really – check out for tutorials and supplies.


Pouring the penny top bar!

I was going to write a lot more.. and say lots of witty and fun things. The more I write, the more I regret doing a blog post right now. I just feel like hot garbage. I just wanted to take the time to give you all a quick update. All I do is work, but I like it. I’m staying busy with custom pieces, the bar, classes, and my own remodels. In closing.. here are some more pictures of recent pieces I have completed. Sorry this post sucked – #sorrynotsorry


A vintage vanity I recently completed.


An old wardrobe with fresh paint!


An old Victrola turned into a bar!


I know build custom trays! How pretty are these vintage French ones?!


Before – an old, broken organ.


After – organ turned into a bar/desk/display piece.. whatever you want!


Annnnnndd… thats all for tonight. Its time to take some NyQuil and put a chick flick on.

Until next time…
