Gather Ye Chairs


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 : )




  1. Your space looks great and so does those chairs! I've been thinking about renting a space but keep flip flopping as too what to do. Seeing your space is so inspiring!

  2. Cori, I love the way the chairs turned out. Your booth is fabulous. I have thought about it. Maybe after the holidays. The place I would like to do a booth is fairly pricey plus you have to sign a contract for six months and pay first and last months rent up front. Most places don't do it that way. I bet that table and chairs sells quickly, too.

  3. Your booth looks great, love the chairs!
