A Thing for Roses at Monticello

On Friday, I went to Monticello to give my booth a bit of a fluff and to bring in “Big Pink,” as my friend called the big pink cabinet I took to Farm Chicks. I was very pleased to see that many items sold so I didn’t really need to take out too much to make Big Pink work in my space.  I also realized that I can’t remember the last time I showed pictures of my little space at Monticello.  My good friend, Amy, took this one back in April.


Here’s what my booth looks like as of Friday.





Here’s the cute little cabinet I bought from Isabel at Farm Chicks.  It’s perfect for holding some of my pretties. Of course, I had to add a little bling to the ugly lock.


This chair was from my own home.  It’s the only one (of four) that I finished making over.  I guess I just never loved them enough to finish. For awhile now, I’ve been looking for some new dining chairs.  I wanted a cane back and curvy legs, and I wanted them cheap.  Last week, I was lucky enough to get to pre-shop a few of my friends garage sales and at my friend, Allie’s, I found these.


Sorry for the poor quality picture. I love these chairs and all their mis-matchiness.  I love that they are already painted and they are sturdy. I have already given them new seat covers, but no pictures yet, so I’ll have to show you how they turned out along with some of the other great furniture items I scored last week.

This week, my #1 boy is heading down to California to visit his grandparents. My #1 girl and I will be taking a mini thrifting road trip. Be back soon with lots to share!  Happy Monday!
