Another Wednesday of Beautiful Whites......

As the Trade Days Antique Flea Market Sale fast approaches, I find myself totally absorbed in creating and finishing items for the sale. I plan on having a totally white booth this year with all shades of whites and creams for a look that is associated with me and that I really love. The sconces are from the early 1900s and were a brassy gold chalkware......after a coat of paint and and a light glaze, they take on a whole new life. The screen
was just a pine screen with dated fabric that became something wonderfully romantic with a coat of white paint and a little lace. All of the boxes were great with their aged wood and graphics, but still looked worn out and not in a good way.......so all were painted creamy white, distressed, lined with old music and book pages, then given a slight glaze. I'm so excited about the fall sale. Although I host this event twice a year in May and October, this one somehow seems different....maybe it's the economy....maybe I know how good all the dealers are....or maybe, just maybe it's finally "on the map".........
