Sunday is the big move day! As I mentioned in the previous post, I’ve rented a space in a collective of other vintage vendor types. I don’t know how it will work out, but I’m anxious to try!! I’m also anxious to have my dining room space back, even though I don’t really use it!
So here are a few of the new pieces I’ll be displaying:
This telephone table (?) was a pretty easy flip. I just reupholstered, cleaned it up and gave it a light retouch of the stain to give it a richer look.
You might remember this piece, it’s one that has had a serious identity crisis! It’s a 19th century Aesthetic mirror frame, minus the mirror. I didn’t want it but Gus gave it to me and I had a hard time figuring out what to do with it. First I hung picture frames from it, but I didn’t like the way they dangled. Then I put in a cork board, and covered it with fabric, but frankly, it was cheap and fell apart. It sat in my apartment all summer until now.
So here’s the latest incarnation:
It’s a chalkboard with a small piece inserted on top for push pins. I like it!
Another piece I didn’t do much with. The lower left leg was missing the veneer so I just filled it with wood fill and painted it. It doesn’t look great up close, but it looks fine from a normal vantage point! Another good cleaning, and fresh coat of stain. The biggest change was the painting of the metal handles. Ugly non-discript metal, now a shiny silver! It’s a pretty cool piece!
This table was one a pair I had a couple of years ago. Originally it had a glass top, but unfortunately I dropped the glass… I couldn’t figure out what to do with it, but then I had an idea to just put a piece of wood in and decoupage! How about a map! Everyone needs a map in their living room, you can plan trips!
And a couple of stools!
So there are the latest pieces!! I’ll be sure to post photos of the new space, and I may start a new page on this site. So I hope to see you again soon!!
