Lovin Me Some Whites

How Fabulous is this vintage piece painted white,


Oh my wait until you see this wood cabinet all dressed in white,

Ta Da!
Here she is....



I'm having a very hard time letting this at the shop, I really really really want to take it back home.
This is a very hard job being in this business, my first instinct is to keep it, but my job is to sale it.
Unless it don't sale....then I can bring it home..
Now the question is how long do I have to wait, how long is that time between taking it to the shop and it not selling.
One week, one month, two months, three months, can I bring it home before Christmas....
Oh wow it just hit me if I love it so much someone else will too, it might sale, then what.
Oh no now I'm having an anxiety attack.
Ok I have to go now to find me some chocolate to eat, that usually helps.
I've linked up with Kathleen @ Faded Charm
for her 63rd White Wednesday,
stop over to see more whites!
Be Blessed,
Melissa

One Dresser Down

One dresser down and 4 more pieces of furnitue in our work shop awaiting another coat of paint.
~
Wow the last couple of days have been crazy, we made it to four acution in two days, so you say when did I have time to paint, well let me tell you, last night I was painting until 12:30 am, up this morning at 6:00am to put another coat of paint on. I'm going to sleep tonight. But right now it's back out in the work shop to paint some more.
~
We just got back from a auction that wasn't very productive.
That makes for a long day when you sit at an auction and wait for just the right piece of furniture, that would look beautiful with a coat of white paint on it.....just to have someone out bid you. When I say out bid, well there was two people at this auction (not me) that wasn't going to leave without this piece of furniture, one of them got it (not me) and they paid 3 times more than what I could of sold it for. Oh well thats how it goes. Hope they enjoy it, sure hope it don't fall off the truck on their way home (Oooops did I just type that out loud). LOL!

Until tomorrow,

Busy, Busy, Busy







We 're working on restocking The Vintage Attic's room at Valley Antiques, and I have to say this is no easy task (I'm not by any means complaining). Here is pictures of the new pieces we took in yesterday morning.
By the close of business yesterday we sold 2 out of the 3 pieces of furniture we brought in, not only that but, 3 pieces of furniture that was already there sold.
So with that said we have a busy week ahead of us.
Painting furniture is no easy task, it's not somethng you can just whip up in one day, it takes time, sanding, priming, taking off hardware, replacing missing hardware, ext....... and with a booth space that is on the verge of setting empty, we can't waste any time this week.
So I'm off today, looking for furniture that is worthy of The Vintage Attic's Tags.

Hutches, Tables and Stands Oh My!!

We just broght this shabby chic hutch in the shop a couple of days ago

my two favorite things ironstone and tarnished silver.
The table they are setting on is a 1930's square oak table from the Sears robuck catalogs.
There is somethng about the look of old oak that is just simply pretty.

White Vintage


There is something about old oil base painted furniture that makes me want to buy it.
So I did.
I always tell myself, if it don't sell I'll just put it in my home.
I always buy what I love just in case it don't sell.
I have to say I have not been able to bring a piece home with me yet.
That don't count the pieces I bought and never took to the shop.
Ok now to the ironstone, I LOVE IRONSTONE!
Never found a piece of ironstone I didn't like.
Same goes with the ironstone, if it don't sell it don't break my heart,
I'll just bring it on home with me.
So I buy it, when I can get it..




Here at The Vintage Attic's little room inside of Valley Antiques, we are kicking butt with furniture sale's already this month!
Yes I'm doing my happy dance, you would too if you went to check on your space and all you could see was SOLD signs.
I am so blessed, my God love me.
I think I'm His favorite!

Be Blessed Too,
