flea market gems

sunday was my first sunday off in over a year and guess how i decided to spend it...at the flea market! i've been dying to go forever, but my work schedule hasn't allowed it. i got up early, picked up the bf and we headed to alameda and entered the flea market at 9am. i then proceeded to watch people walk out with amaaaazing finds which made me determined to get out there with my flash light at 6am next month. we did happen to find two amazing pieces - a vintage ge table fan (that still works!) and a great carved wood coffee table both just $15 each! our first project was to spiff up the dingy fan and check out the fab job jason did, she's so sparkly!...




here i am after entering the flea market...SO excited!




aaaaand a sneak peak of the fabulous coffee table (and this adorable guy named jason who i happen to be engaged to). i have big plans for this table's makeover, which maaay include chalkboard paint. stay tuned for the juicy deets...




so that is how i spent my labor day weekend. how did you spend yours?
xoxo

Good job! Looks great! Love that fan!
BTW, How do you get your pictures to have rounded edges like that?
