I can’t pass up a great chair…..
So…I found myself with four chairs and a greet little “bench”.
They went to the “chair repair center” for a little TLC…
got a nice fresh coat of paint (I actually mixed Old White and Old Ochre ASCP for this project) and became part of a great dining set here
See the blue and white stereo cabinet on the right from a couple posts ago? WELL….it already sold and was sitting in the front of the store with a wonderful “SOLD” sign on it.
Gotta love those super fast turnarounds!
I had to try out a fun lampshade project I found at Vintage Revivals here.
I even cut some of these beautiful roses from my garden to complement the room (I’m sure these are some of the last blooms of the season).
I found this fabulous fabric at JoAnn’s last week. It’s actually an outdoor fabric. Luckily, it wasn’t on sale so I could use my 40% off coupon.
I love the way it works with this set…just adds a bit of modern flair and a “just right” pop of color.
I was happy with the way the space looked when I left on Friday.
It’s so much fun to have an ever-changing “room” that’s not in your house that you can “play” with.
If you’ve ever thought about having a space at an antique mall and you love doing this kind of thing….
Give it a shot! It’s really so much fun.
You will learn a lot about yourself, the retail business, and NEVER run out of projects (if you are a project junkie like me).
Heck, you might even make a little money : )
