Vintage Makes Me Smile

“What are you going to do with that?” Is often the question from my husband when I beeline it to a treasure at Warrenton, Round Top or anywhere we happen to be checking out. Well, thought you’d like to see some of my current projects.

  

This patio table looked sad and worn out. Not a lot of work and it fits perfectly in our store

  

  

Currently painting this little sofa it entry table, then…. 

 

Then, this little beauty arrived – a Facebook find that made me race to Huntsville to pick it up. The paint colors are what I selected to give her a whole new look…. 

 

The transition has begun, and yes, I just can’t do a simple one color redo! I have tried!!

The closest I might come to a simple project will be these two chairs — 

 

But, who knows! 

  

It could end up like this!!

Inspiration is Everywhere 

I love shopping shows and other stores, I get so many ideas….and get depressed at all the creativity I sometimes feel I DON’T have!  

At the risk of depressing you too (LOL) let me share some of what I saw today:

Able’s in Huntsville, Texas set up the coolest entry to a booth. Just made me want to go in…then out…in….out, well, you get the point!

Another homey example. 

Only in Texas does this make sense, but I love it – note the glitter this gal is sporting! This was at a great store, Antique Queens in Rockdale, Texas! Love their creativity!

What a great way to take the customer upward!

Ok, well this one’s just for me because I love reindeer! I want it too!!!

Just a fun collection all over the place! This is at French Marketplace in Navasota, Texas.

Stay designed inspired–even I surprise myself sometimes. And you will too! Just try it!
