It looks like we have gathered props for a variety show.
Friday is projects day. I have my furniture and smalls lined up, my brushes cleaned, and my paint mixed.
I plan to start loading into the booths late this afternoon and continue through Sunday.
So customers of Riverfront Antique Mall, if you see something you like, run on over.
The first pic is a teaser. A primitive wooden wonder and not one, two, tall green shutters with a tree design.
The wooden wonder is on the project list.
This week has been filled with posts of finds.
Next week I am promising completed projects posts.
In fact the first furniture project will be featured as a guest post Monday for Tuula at The Thrifty Rebel.
This group of finds is a true variety show.
A mish-mash of odds.
Primitive, French-y, and weird.
If you have ever seen Olive's French plaque on her mantel (see it here), this piece could be its companion.
She will be getting a fresh coat of old paint.
The angel, not Olive!
A black wood briefcase with steel handle - so industrial chic.
A magazine table hidden because of its horrid Santa Fe figures.
Three little shutters
A chenille footstool.
Barely seen in the bright sun - a heavy black frame.
An old sap bucket decoupaged with pet photos.
A ricer or berry strainer (no one could agree at the thrift store) with its pestle (or is it the mortar? - I never get those two straight).
A tall ladder to go with the previously posted small ladder.
Finally I got to shop a quarter sale like Audrey At Timeless Treasures is always talking about.
All clear glass items were a quarter.
I bought nine of various patterns and sizes.
I am proud to say they are currently half-transformed.
A sweet trio of a Japanese vase, a stoneware jar, and a cobalt pitcher.
A small jar for craft supplies.
What was being sold as a glass bowl is actually a Hoosier glass pendant light shade from the forties.
I am not that smart - it was written on the bottom!
A gallon-sized flask.
I am guessing it was used as a flower vase.
But think of the drinks you could mix in there.
An adorable hand-tinted child's portrait in a vintage frame.
Had to show his/her amazing smile.
I needed a mirror in my booth.
Saw this one and grabbed it.
As I drove home, I noticed it was actually quite old and better looking the more I looked at it.
I cannot paint it.
The wood is in great shape.
The small print - soldier on horseback.
The other day Suzan at Simply Vintageous revealed she wore her little black dress while painting her planks for her new/old kitchen table/island.
Well, when I am cleaning and painting and tagging I wear ...
