My First Westside Flea Market

This weekend I’ll be selling furniture at the Westside Flea Market! This will be my first flea market and first time trying to sell my refinished furniture outside of Craigslist and garage sales. I got a little wrapped up in trying to make this site perfect for the flea market, but I ran out of time to pull all of my content together. So stay tuned for tons more hideous, neon photos of my house and some great(or at least much improved) after photos.

For those of you in the Cleveland area, I hope to see you there on Saturday!


3550 Crocker Rd, Westlake, OH 44145

Check out my shop page for more information about my available furniture.

Here are some of the items you’ll see on Saturday:

This will be a chair-a-palooza. Chairs, chairs, and more chairs! I’ll have chairs for every style with me on Saturday. Chairs.

I’ll also have an assortment of letterpress cards for sale:


Got your shit together and already have chairs for every butt in your family? I’ll have some mid-century dressers ready to sell once I can make a little space in my garage, contact me to find out when they are ready.

Currently Trying:

To liquidate some chairs. I have too many chairs and not enough butts.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

You wanna know what we have been decidedly NOT obsessed with in the past month? The blog. Womp womp. We’re hopping back in this week, but we’ll be posting a bit more sporadically for a while.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
