What has The Vintage Bricoleur been up too?

Pin It
Oh My!
It has been sooo long. Over a month, and I'm sorry.
Actually, you might not even care or have noticed that I've been quiet.
For my customers who stalk  I mean follow me, I know they like to see what is new around here.
So, Here we go.

Back in the beginning of February I was doing some picking for the store and the upcoming shows and found this little half table.  Guess what?  It's perfect for me and it won't be going to the next show.  I'll share more on that later.

We had another great show at The Sacramento Antique Faire the second Sunday in February.

This cute desk is still available.  
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® - Old Ochre with Clear & Dark Wax.

We celebrated my father-in-law's 70th Birthday. 
 You can barely see is name tag. It says "Daddy".

We painted lots of furniture with our favorite paint. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. -Antibes with Clear & Dark Wax and a bit of Gilding. 
 Tutorial to come!

We had an awesome show at The Alameda Antique Faire the first Sunday in March.  It had been 6 months since we had been there.  It was good to see many old customers.

The following Sunday we were back at The Sacramento Antique Faire.

The day after that we had out-of-state family here for a week.  What a great time we had.  I had such a blast showing them around and I even got to spend a couple days working in the store with one of my sisters.  Thank you all for coming out to visit.

Needless to say, I have neglected this blog.  I have many photos ready to share. A few tutorials and some before and after shots from our projects.

What is next for The Vintage Bricoleur?
