Here are some pics from my booth on Friday, before the sale started:
And finally my HUGE project: the china hutch! It did not sell this time, but I know the right person will find it! :) I learned a lot about staging over the past few days and think I can really improve on how I displayed this piece.
Here are the before pics again:
And here is the after:
I stripped and stained the top of the buffet piece and then used Behr paint with primer in "Toasted Marshmallow" for the body. Can't remember the name of the blue I used for the inside of the cabinet, but it is a very soft shade. Then the entire piece got a coat of dark stain, which I applied in small sections and then immediately wiped off. I have to be honest here: this project was a HUGE pain! I have really spoiled myself with chalk paint and this whole latex and stain business really made me work. :) I do love the end result though and hope someone else will feel the same way next month!
Speaking of next month (how about that smooth segue?), I have been working the thrift stores and Craigslist like a mad woman to ensure I have some interesting pieces! Here are some peeks at what I am working on now:
I have two of these that are going to be splendid in navy blue.
This little wooden table has some girly decoupage in its future.
I love this old piece. It has a mirror that goes with it, but I think I am going to make it more of a desk. I have a waterfall vanity and dresser than I am working on and think this might be more useful without the mirror? (More about the vanity and dresser later...I will leave you with two words that I may never want to hear again though: wood veneer.)
A sweet twin headboard and a really heavy mirror.
I have two of these that will go with the little wooden table. :)
Thank you so very much for stopping by after my little hiatus! Happy Tuesday!
