Weekend Barn Sale


I picked the coldest day of the year to have my barn sale. and boy was it cold!

   But that did not keep my die hard customers from coming on out to see what was cooking this month.



                         In order to get ready
         for my sale this month I
           needed a bit of extra
  my grandson Eli came to my
    rescue. Thanks Eli, you
               a big help to


   Needless to say…. this  box with

     handles on each side, great 

      storage, a fresh coat of paint,

       distressed and antiqued,

                       did not

                     last long.  

                   Gone once, Gone twice,

                      SOLD…… $69.00



              Below is a sampling of some of the items I had. I fell in love with the white vanity. One of those pieces I had a hard time selling. But….. if I kept everything there would not be a sale. Right???  Sigh….  gone once gone twice, SOLD! $125.00

But, the darling white chair is still in my barn and it is only 35.00. The fabric is kind of like a hard plastic. It really is sweet the way it is or imagine what it could look like with a slipcover on it.?  That may need to be my next project. If you want it as is…… email me and I will hold it for you.

Barn Sale this Weekend at my Home

Friday and Saturday Jan 29 and 30

Hours: 10-5 both days

Directions. from route 41 and route 10, take route 10 south 1 block to Homeville Rd. Make a right on to Homeville Rd and go 3 miles to 3480 Homeville Rd. Driveway is on the left. Look for the Cottonwood House sign

If you have the winter blues, why not come on over. I have been working feverishly getting ready for my barn doors to open up this weekend, January 29 and 30. 10-5 both days.

The barn is bursting at the seams! Los of great Stuff!
Shabby chic and cottage decor furniture, tables, coffee tables, pictures, lamps, area rugs, etc.....

Since closing my doors at The Cottonwood House at 227 Cochran Street, I am now using my own barn to take care of this crazy addiction I created for myself. Bless my dear hubby for allowing me to take over a portion of his barn.

Imagine that!

What was once a resting place for his tractors is now the home of all my fun treasures I scour for at auctions. I am a happy camper when I have a paint brush in hand and I get to transform a piece of furniture. I guess once a shabby chicer, always a shabby chicer

The table below is one of the pieces I just redid. With just a few minor repairs from my hubby, (below)
it is now a beauty. Love It!
