New Finds and a Question

Please forgive the messy garage....these are some
of my new finds.

A cute child's step stool plus chair (the "step
up" swings around to make a chair back)
and an unusual old tin.

Two sweet sayings.  I may keep the
Friendship one because I have a large
collection of friendship sayings.

Cool old JC Penny tool holder.  I know
it needs to be cleaned so it will
look much better.

Tulip vase that also needs to be cleaned. 

Wonderful old floral picture.....yummy colors.

And finally the question.......

To paint the stand or let it keep its
"I've been left outside" look?

And if you vote for paint, would it be
plain white or a bright color like
red, blue, turquoise, yellow, green??

I will be using it for display but
 it will also be for sale.

Till next time,  stay safe
and be healthy.

Love the pottery piece and I would paint the stand white. I think white show off pieces better!

I would paint it white with a little sanding to distress it. - Sarah

I love the colors in that painting, oh if I only had the space to bring them all home - big sigh. I vote Grandma Green for the shelf. That is what I call the color of Jadite.

love your new goodies.
I would leave the stand the way it is. This way, when you sell it, somebody can paint it or not. I think it shows all the things just fine on it, in its natural state.
But if you paint it, I would choose a grey-green. Thats still neutral enough.
Hugs, Evi

Everyone seems to be loving the natural look these days, so I would say, as YOU always say, "leave it like it is, and if it doesn't sell, then paint it!". I know how much you love to paint!
My space at Camas is much fuller now. I don't know what was wrong with me! Ha! Ha!
