Guest Host {Cassie of Primitive & Proper}

My vacation is coming to a close but it has been a fun week of my Best Bloggy Friends, right? I have one more to share. Cassie of Primitive and Proper. Take it away, Cassie!

Hello 3 Sun Kissed Boy Fans! I am Cassie from Primitive & Proper.  My blog mainly features furniture makeovers and tips, my own home's decor and design, and a little craftiness.  I am so excited that Yanet has asked me to be a guest today.  She is one of the warmest bloggers out there, as you all know... a genuine and kind soul.  One of my favorite features that Yanet does is her famous, "You're Throwing WHAT Away?!?!?"  It's really amazing what people will throw out or leave as trash.  In light of that, I thought I would share some of my favorite sloppy seconds... a couple pieces I have found left behind on the ground at the auction, headed to the garbage.

I head out to the Eastern shore of MD every now and again for Dixon's auction.  I always come home with a truckload full of goodies!  One time, I found this piece of wood... not really sure what it was but I thought it was cool.

I took it home with me and created a "Beach" sign, painting it out in white, and stenciling on big letters in blue.  I intended to sell it, but I just couldn't.  I loved it too much, so it has been in my home since!
Another lucky day at the auction, I found these two lyre back chairs homeless.  Lucky for them, I saved them from ultimate demise and brought them home.
The beauty of free finds is that they allow you an opportunity to do something funky, and no loss if it doesn't work out, right?  I painted them with Annie Sloan's Greek Blue chalk paint, and covered the seats with chocolate zebra fabric and here they are now!
Some of my pals also hit the auction and come home with lucky free finds.  My pal Pam found this awesome vintage owl bank left behind on the ground there.  Say what?
She knew of my fondness for owls and brought this cute little guy home for me.  I gave him a little makeover with some spray paint, and now he looks like this and I love him!
Yanet, thank you so much for letting me crash your blog for the day and share my own sloppy seconds!  I hope you will come pay a visit to me at my blog.  Just click the button and meet me there!


Yep, pretty silly what people throw away. I love that BEACH sign! What a great idea, Cassie. Thank you so much for coming by.

Cassie has a wonderful heart and is so talented! Great combination, don't you think? These are some of my favorite dressers she's refinished. I love their colors. Click here for the details.

She has also been working on revamping her house. It is actually up for sale. Click here for the home tour.

Wanna know what else she works hard on? Her abs! She's hot!

Thank you once again, my Best Bloggy Friends, for hanging out with the 3 Sun Kissed Boys this week. You all have touched my life in one way or another and I am so glad we've "met". I'm going to let yall go now before I start hearing some sappy Disney song in the background.

I look forward to coming back Monday with some of our vacation adventures. Have a happy weekend, everybody!

I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
