We are officially in Firehouse Antiques as of last Friday!!! Woop-woop! However, we have SO much more space, the booth looked naked when we left. We made a very quick trip Saturday morning to take a few more items and move some of the stuff from the other booth...okay, it looked a little better. I worked furiously on some projects yesterday and will be making another trip this morning. I promise pictures of the after will be posted this afternoon after this load!! It is looking pretty stinkin' cute and I am very excited about the days ahead!
With all that being said, this will be a quick post so that I can get loading and on the road.
A good while back, I bought two "pub" tables at the auction. It was late into the night and for some odd reason (they were looking a little the worse for wear!), no one else bid on them! Last week I decided I'd better get one of them done for the new space and started working on it.
It needed a little wood putty, some sanding, and to be restained. Because of the wood putty on the top, I didn't have many options except to paint that portion but, I really liked the stained legs so, I painted the inset square and stained the rest to match the legs. Then I painted the rings on the legs to match the top. Finally, I glazed it all and added a couple quick coats of polycrylic. I love it!
These pictures were taken in the booth and the coloring is awful!
Sorry! Hopefully you can get the idea!
About those chairs.....
Most of you know I have a serious weakness for chairs and when they started bringing those out at the last auction, I just couldn't help myself. I ended up with more than I really need but come on, are they not the cutest?! And they were all very sturdy! I thought a little seat cover with a ruffle mights help add a little color and tie in with the cream on the table. Lovin' it!
Have a great day! More pictures to post later!! :)
