Pasadena Flea Market Finds

I have been a bad bad blogger. Does "I'm so crazy super busy" hold water anymore? :-)

Last Sunday we made it to the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market. I am suddently OBSESSED with all things old/ugly/disgusting/in-need-of-refinishing. It's my new thing.

We bought two things that fit the bill. The first, my new friend, Bill. Bill was all kinds of different colors. Mostly pastels. So I sprayed him white. And now he sits on the mantel in the pool room.


I've been wanting to do this for a LONG time. I found an old picture frame and painted it white. Then cut down a piece masonite to fit and painted it with chalkboard paint. It'll go in my office!


In other news, I walked into the garage to cut the masonite with Chris. It's like a freakin' Home Depot in there! 5 different kinds of saws, clamps, tools, saw horses... all kinds of stuff. Apparently we've been collecting stuff since we moved it... I had no idea. Where have I been!?

That chalkboard frame thing is adorable!!!

I wonder if our garage will turn into a home depot. I've gone twice since we signed our papers. I hadn't been in like, 8 years....back when I was a frosh in college searching for a fridge..
