Round Top Antiques = A Display Solution

Before

After

For quite some time we have been looking for a way to better display our linens – placemats & napkins. An area we wanted to expand as we improve our bridal and home selections. So, while perusing the Round Top Antiques show I searched for just the right piece. I found several interesting ideas, but they either were too expensive, too big/too small, or just wrong! Until I got to Fayetteville and found this gem on the square. Not only is it perfect for what we need, it fit and fit our wallet! To top it off, Kasper Wire Works is just about 45 minutes away and the Kasper family are friends. I can’t wait to show them this little gem and find out what it was originally intended to do. I’ll share when we get the answer.
So, when you are perusing garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, etc., look at everything in a different light. What do you need? A bookcase? An old canoe could be re-purposed. Need a bench with drawer space? Take an old beat up dresser and remove the top two drawers and make a bench – similar to one we did earlier this season. There is also nothing that cant’ take on new life with a little paint and decorative touch. I found a three-legged side table for a chair that I plan on recreating soon. Another project…oh boy!

  1. I just started blogging and don’t have a clue but I’ll figure it out. I’m a home stager/decorative painter and LOVE re-purposing things. Can’t wait to hear more great ideas and share some too.
