My parents offered to have the boys over for a sleepover this weekend, so Jeff and I had some time to go out for a date night. Jeff made reservations at a local farm-to-table restaurant and I asked if we could fit in a trip to a nearby antique shop while we were kid-less. He knows how much I love it and agreed.
Not only did he agree, but he carried my finds to the counter, loaded them all in the van and even helped me make the decision to buy two old hardware cabinets. Flowers are nice, but carrying chippy old things to the van for me is definitely the way to my heart!
One of those chippy old things was this coffee table on little casters, made out of old barn wood.
The texture is amazing.
I also picked up a white drop-leaf table that is missing the leaves. I suppose it’s not technically a drop-leaf table any longer, since it doesn’t possess leaves to drop, but there it is.
And I bought the wood slatted…thing. I don’t really know what it is, but I do know I like it.
I love how the white paint on the table is a couple of different shades. A key to doing white well is to have a lot of texture and depth and this table has it in spades.
I also bought a cream-painted metal stool that I paired with one of my new ticking slipcovers.
And this little dress was just too sweet…
And this basket/hamper…
…talk about texture.
We had a busy day in the studio, pricing these and other things and painting up a storm.
Here’s a preview of a piece I’m especially excited about…
