New items for the new space!

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:

Here’s the before of this sad table/ wall clock. And then…

I decided to give it a nautical look and changed out the clock hands.  Much less sad looking now don’t you think?

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.

o here’s the latest incarnation:

chalk

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!!
