Welcome to Cheryl's blog on how to recreate found objects.

Hello Everyone,
 
I am new to this blog thing, but from what I hear it is a popular way of sharing your ideas and how to's on subjects in today's world.  I would like to thank you for visiting my site.
 
I would like to talk about the first steps I do after finding a object or bring one home for a garage sale.  I like to give each piece a nice CLEANING....    Of course the fun part is pulling out the drawers and searching for any lost treasure.  I have bought and found hundreds of pieces over the years and still have not hit the jackpot.  So far I have only found a check for $25 that was from 1998 that was never cashed, a gold chain, coins, some costume jewelery, and random articles of clothing.  Sometimes you come across some old love letters when you buy desks.
 
One of the best stories I have about finding something in a drawer was....  I painted this dresser white and distressed it and apparently did not check it over before I sent it out to the store.  The store owner calls to tell me it sold and the husband was going to come pick it up in the afternoon.  The husband comes to pick it up with his brother and they were taking out the drawers to make it light and to much their surprise was a gigantic bra that was a DOUBLE G hiding behind the drawer.  The store owner proceeded to call me and told me she was mortified, which turned into hysterical laughter.  From that day forward I always check the drawers before sending out the piece.  
 
What is the best think you have ever found in a piece of furniture?

Hi Cheryl, I just read an article about the 'Junk Chick' in 'The Record' today, so I thought I'd check out your site since I pick too (don't restore though although I've been a carpenter). I thought I would add books to your 'what did you find inside' items-I went to a tag sale one rainy Saturday when I lived in Vermont & travelled 30 min to get there. It was the only sale that cold fall day, but I just had to go. Well the only thing I bought was a book for $1, & thought I got skunked for the day. The book was a bio of Kate Douglas Wiggin (Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm) & signed by her sister who wrote it. It was also signed w/a gift inscription by a famous publisher to his wife. Value was still worth only $10. I was in the process of listing it on Ebay more than 2 years later, when I thought I'd turn it over and shake to see if anything was in the book. AN ORIGINAL 4x6 ETCHING by 'James Carroll Beckwith', of fellow American artist 'John Singer Sargent' fell out of the book! It was signed & dated Paris, 1876, a time when both were students of Carolus-Duran there. Drawing was a nice pic of John sitting on a straw mat and smoking w/ one of those long cigarette holders of the time. I called around to sell it but decided Ebay was the best, which it was, & sold it for $276 to a man named & related to Beckwith! That sad skunked-out rainy day wasn't too bad-Thank You God!

I am very pleased to read this post because If you want to create found art objects, there is no time like the present to get stuck in. A visit to your local landfill, inorganic rubbish collection, or thrift store will yield mountains of inspiration. Do you have some great found art that you’d like to get featured on EE?
