June is a busy and fun month for our family.

We have our granddaughter Carleigh Q’s 3rd birthday on June 15 and then a Double Birthday Bonanza on the 26th when our other granddaughter Claire Bear turns 5 and Dave turns … well, let’s just say he’s been around a lot longer than the girls!

Dave really enjoys sharing his birthday with our oldest grandchild. He was such a good sport about their Caillou-themed birthday last year and he’s really looking forward to the big Princess Sofia birthday bash being planned for this year!

June is also a busy and fun month here at All Things New Again in Leesburg.

We are heading down to North Carolina with Courtney, G and Joey for the US 301 Endless Yard Sale. This is our first time for the North Carolina event, but after traveling to Kentucky and Tennessee for the Worlds Longest Yard Sale last summer, we just couldn’t pass up this opportunity for two full days of treasure hunting a little closer to home. We will be posting updates from the road on our Facebook page so please stop by and like us if you haven’t already. Our road trips are a lot of fun!

Our shop in Leesburg will be open our regular hours of 10 to 5 on Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21 thanks to our friend Pat who will be working for us while we are away.

If you haven’t visited the shop in awhile, now is a great time to stop by. We finished a few big projects last week and we have a few more in the pipeline. Here are photos and details.

Vintage Secretary Dress painted by All Things New Again, Leesburg VA

The woodgrain was so pretty on this antique dresser and mirror that even I couldn’t bear to paint over it! We restored the wood on the drawers and top then painted the frame and mirror.

Is that everything?

NO! There’s more!

This little table is ON SALE for $25. (Regularly $65.) That’s a huge deal!

One more huge piece of news …

We launched our first how-to video on YouTube this week!

In the video, Courtney demonstrates how to paint a chalkboard chair.  We have a lot of ideas floating around for future DIY videos, but if there is a specific project or technique you would like us to feature, please let us know … and please share our YouTube channel with your friends.

Whew! I think that’s all of our news for the month of June. Didn’t I tell you it was busy?

We are really looking forward to this summer. We have a lot going on at the shop, but we are also looking forward to a lot of fun summertime adventures with our grandchildren.

We hope you and your family have a wonderful summer too!
