Now, I don't want to sound like I'm complaining because I know that lots of you out there have very full plates right now too. My biggest dilemma is I don't feel like I have enough stuff to make a good showing at all the places I'm selling at. That's right, you heard me. Not enough stuff. Another dilemma I have is do I stay at home and work on what I have, or do I go out and try to find stuff that is ready to go? The second one is more fun, but you never know what, if anything, you might find. I'm so glad I chose that one today because this is what I came home with.
I love the little mini dresser on wheels. It only needed a little sanding and tightening the glass knobs that it already had on it! Yeah! I love finds like this. The little four drawer dresser on top had "Bozo the Clown" decals on every drawer. If you are old like me, you probably remember Bozo. The decals while kind of cool and definitely vintage, were a little creepy. I just sanded them off, gave the knobs a little spray paint and it was also good to go. The mirrored medicine cabinet just needed a little cleaning. I love the long skinny mirror and the barkcloth has beautiful fallish colors. On top of the little dresser is a glass and metal display thingy. I think you are suppose to put candles in it, but I think you could use it as a little display cabinet and put some of your favorite goodies inside.
This table was a curbside find. It didn't look like this though. The top was painted white and it had lots of colorful pictures painted on it by a child. Not real cute. I attacked it with some chemical stripper and I love this distressed look. It would be really easy to paint it, but I'm going to leave it as is.Tomorrow I will be heading back to Monticello for the Fall Premier Sale you have heard me and many others go on and on about. From what I saw on Tuesday, you will definitely not want to miss this one if you are in the area. Lots and lots of great finds the dealers have saved just for this show. I'll be wearing one of my new vintage dresses. (It's pink and white check so if you see me in it, stop me and say hi). Hope you come out for a fun shopping time!
