Decorating an antique booth at Angel’s Antique Mall
We finally took a few items to the booth at Angel’s antique mall this past weekend. It was beginning to look rather pitiful. Sparse. We’re still low on smalls since I’ve been concentrating on putting most of them on Etsy. Ricky finished another table and benches. Those things don’t last long. If we keep one down there all the time, it looks like they never sell, they’re so similar and always in the same spot. (Too big to fit anywhere else.)
The fluorescent lighting puts a weird color cast on the photos that I can’t seem to edit out. I try and have made it a tad better, but it still looks off.
(Table and benches and coffee table sitting on top are sold as well as both lamp shade skeletons and little photo spice jars and candlesticks.)
Yes, we can all agree that little table in front is mainly a space filler. Size is right, color is wrong. For the spot.
Erin thinks she might need to recover the chairs.
Old parking meter for your garden, anyone? (Parking meter is sold.)
(Shelves are sold.)
These shelves are a much prettier color in person. More green/blue. The finish is genuinely old. We did nothing to it. Wouldn’t they be great in the right kitchen?
(Chair is sold.)
Erin recovered the chair, using the original, down for the cushion. She did a great job. She’s becoming a quite a good upholsterer. The color, again, is more green/blue than the blue in the picture.
So. Are we proud of the way the booth looks right now? No. But given what we had to work with and time we had to do it, I guess we did okay. We need to really get busy bringing more things in and spend a day rearranging.
