Tables of Spring 2012

Tables of Spring 2012

The shop where we sell Antiques & Uniques has a Spring event each year, we call it “Tables of Spring”. Each vendor decorates a table for Spring using their merchandise. This year Antiques & Uniques is using a potting table as our “Table for Spring” and developed what we call our “Vintage Porch Party” complete with a rusty fork and spoon candlelier !

To Paint or Not to Paint?

Have you ever agonized over whether to paint a piece of furniture or not? Of course you have! We all have ! Do you LOVE that maple dresser from 1972? No probably not. Are ya ” married to it”? In otherwords , did you promise dear Aunt Bessie that gave it to you that you would leave it in it’s poor ,yellowed ,sad looking state of mind forever? No probably not! Well , paint it! Enjoy it , with it’s new coat of color, updated look!! Today, I’m going to show exactly how that sad 1972 dresser will look with a fresh coat of paint ! Kinda like a lady getting a face lift! Takes years off her looks! This sweetheart is for sale at The Galleries on Gordon, Chickamauga.
