We kicked off 2011 by opening the new Vintage Junky Booth at Winchester Antiques in Franklin. On New Year's Eve I went to paint the booth from lime green to my *signature blue*
Then the next morning after a long night of prep work Mr. Hughes and I hauled a trailer full of stuff to Franklin. And spent most of the afternoon foofing.
So here it is:
Here are the two chests... the Hannah and the Ashley.
I love the Ashley... I painted her a pretty grey (I know, I know I paint everything a pretty grey, but it is different from the other pretty greys!)
I love the tilting mirror. Oh, and I named her after my beautiful sister... the prettiest girl I have met!
A sweet chair with one of my favorite ruffled grey grain sack pillows (more will be in my etsy shop soon.)
These lamps are incredible... one of my favorite finds. Mr. Hughes rewired them and they look great with the bare bulbs (if I do say so myself!)
A few flower pins with a pair of crystal lamps
Some notebooks covered in vintage calling cards... in a painted violin case filled with moss
These will also be listed in my etsy shop soon.... shield shaped coat hooks made from organ pulls.
This piece was built in the booth... worked out great! I didn't have to have Mr. Hughes make any storage pieces for the booth.
This was the other piece that came with the booth. It had some green fabric in the back of it that just didn't go, so I took it down and lined the back of the shelf with a drop cloth.
And, one of my favorite parts of the booth... it has this extra little tiny room attached... it reminds me of my little booth at the Roost... I like the impact you can put in a tiny spot.
So, it is the Garden Room
A Bemis grain sack pillow on a cool folding chair that Mr. Hughes found.
Some flour sack towels on a wrought iron rail
A painted bird cage with moss
Tool sets painted *signature blue*
This wall is all Mr. Hughes.... he painted the herb plaques and found the windows and painted them too.
He is wonderful... what can I say?
Then he also donated these botanicals from his very, very large paper stash.
He has a bit of a problem.
But they were perfect clothesline style across some shutters (that were already there... I just painted them a light grey)
We hope to get a a sign ready soon.... Mr. Hughes has a really awesome made... but he thinks it may be to heavy
Well, that is the second Vintage Junky location.
Here is the address if you are local and you would like to visit:
It is one of my very favorite antique stores and I am thrilled to be there!
I need to get busy getting some stuff ready to spiff up my booth at The Roost... I have some chairs ready and a piece that needs some paint. Got to get busy, busy, busy.
bye for now!
