This week I added a few things--well, a lot of things! First is this porcelain top table that we added last week. I changed out the top display for a more primitive look, adding crocks, an old scale, mason jars, and a set of wood canisters I painted this weekend. They were 60's vintage but hadn't sold in their original state so I painted them black and added a red star on the front. Instant prim. I found the metal tree at another antique mall. It might come home with me if it doesn't sell quickly.
An auction over the weekend (I went to two, lots of finds!) yielded two more vintage suitcases, so I made a stack of them in one corner. That's a Fenton lamp made for LG Wright in the stippled star pattern on the left.
I should have taken close-up photo so you could see the 1930's canister set better. It has red bakelite knobs on the hinged lids.
Ah, the bottomless chair! A couple people asked me why it had no seat. Of course, it's so a flowerpot can be put down in the hole! One of the two that Larry tightened up and I painted sold this week. Someone knew what my intention was!
I rearranged the gray shelves, adding the blue canisters and pottery and the copper canisters, along with several other items. A row of small stools lines the front; the cider press basket used to be my trash can in my office but that didn't seem like a good use for such a cool thing so it's now for sale.
I painted these two small stands this weekend. I'd had them for sale but they didn't move in their natural wood finish so I thought I'd try them in white, hoping that they might find a home on someone's porch.
