Gussied up, shabbied and sissiefied!!!!

Hi Bloggerettes!  What's better than a vintage wooden garden box
gussied up, painted, shabbied and sissiefied??????

I'll tell you what's better....a whole bunch of wooden garden boxes all gussied up, shabbied and sissiefied.....

Of course, I had to throw in a Sissie pillow that I just finished.
The last one I made like this one, sold right away.  I had just enough vintage lace to make the rosette.

These are so much fun to paint and embellish. 
I'm hoping the customers will like them.  They can be used for so many things. 
They are in the shop, waiting on a new home.

Sissie, I love those! How in the world did you find so many? I love what you have done with them! I have a small one now and I love the idea to Sissie fie the bottom with pretty paper


Sares said...

They look great! I like the pastel colors. I will let you know how the chalkpaint goes. I don't know if the expense will justify itself or not, I will have to adjust the price to include the paint and see it the pieces still sell. If not I will use it for personal use. I have read that it helps save on painting time so if you factor in what you consider your labor costs, it evens out or even puts you ahead because it dries so fast and you don't need to prime most pieces.

Have a great weekend and I hope to see you for Pink Saturday's big Birthday bash!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sissie, those are so cute. I guess you built them, too. Love the one with the roses.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Beautiful sissified boxes. I love the soft pastel colors.
