Let’s Talk Vintage #108: A JOYful Project 5

Welcome to Let’s Talk Vintage! This is where we vintage lovin’ types gather together in one place

to share each other’s latest finds, DIY projects using old stuff, collections, old tried and true recipes and more!


FIRST, I want to add a disclaimer about today’s link up.

I’m not sure why this week I was shown a graphic from inlinkz that states today’s

link party will only show up in link form, unless I upgrade my account.

So, please bear with me while I make my way through the ups

and downs here of using inlinkz. I was using linky tools and I switched.

And SECOND, I want to thank EVERYONE who followed me over to this blog,

I appreciate all of you and feel so blessed to have

connected with you through our shared love for vintage!!!!!! Really!

Which leads me to what I’m sharing with you all this week…

a couple of my latest projects. 


Project 1:

I made this fun, Christmas style “JOY” sign with a piece of wood we found

at a sale. Then with paint, sandpaper, and pre-cut letters, I had a 4ft piece of

Christmas goodness.  I had been looking forward to making this for

awhile and you know what, it gave me great joy!  I’m sure it will bring

JOY to its new owner as well.

Since I didn’t use chalk paint I discovered (more like forgot!) that 

it is much harder to distress when using regular ‘ol paint.


Project #2:

Next up was this aqua side table or nightstand. It is a really great size…. tall enough

and has enough space to place a lamp, some books and even a clock!

Still lovin’ the aqua color. In fact, I think I’m going to add it to my

“regulars” …..  which are white, ivory, gray and black.


Project #3

I also found what I think is the perfect “fabric” for the

“dining room set”  in the shop.


If I didn’t already have a beautiful dining room set,

I think I would have either copied this look with another

set or kept this one… because I love it!

The hard part is selling the pieces you want o keep!


Now Let’s See Who is Featured This Week!


Diana of Adirondack Girl at Heart shared her

stencil project with an unlikely canvas: An antique ironstone platter!

I love the fact that it is something you wouldn’t first think of to stencil on.

It speaks loudly of “serving others.”


Eve of Vintage Eve’s found her way to the feature section by showcasing

vintage Libbey Glass. Who doesn’t love or have memories of using

this glassware? Thanks so much for bringing back some fond ones and

for all of the interesting history!


And I started today’s post with some JOY so let’s end it with

a little more Joy! Joy of a Vintage Green, that is!

She shared about “The Little Shelf That Could.”

Now that I have been repurposing and repairing

with my hubby, I understand all of the work it takes to

bring a piece “back to life.”


If you were featured, feel free to grab this

Feature button! Also, feel free to grab any of the graphics

I have made to help promote the new location

of this party!

Thank you all for being here!

I am so blessed by each and every

one of you that stop by.


Now it’s your turn!
