Hello amazing friends!! I had a super productive weekend here at the house and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on. It’s not quite finished but hopefully soon! I even managed to paint a piece of furniture and it felt so good! I’ll be back with that on Thursday.
Today I thought I’d take y’all on a little field trip to my booth since it’s been a while. How does that sound? My poor booth…I know it is feeling neglected.
If you are new around here, I have a booth at the Virginia Beach Antique Mall here in Virginia Beach where I sell all my treasures that I make over.
When I last shared it back in March (boy that doesn’t really seem like that long ago does it??), it looked like this:
The blue hutch is still hanging around. Had I painted it white, it would have sold long ago. It looks pretty in the my booth though…
What have sat in my booth way too long are the pink pieces!
I thought this table and chairs set was so cute:
The three sets I’ve done in boyish colors have sold super fast. It is harder to find cute pieces for boys though. No more girly sets from now on!
This petite hutch in the foreground sold…
I think those barstools need a do-over. They are really cute, but maybe the green is just not working?
I also brought in this dresser that I painted for Behr.com:
And that fun suitcase I found on the curb!
They both sold, and I brought in this pretty serpentine dresser:
Hey! Aren’t those lamps the same ones you did for March Madness a year and a half ago?? Yep! I changed out the lampshades for these burlap ones and they still haven’t sold. One of the switches is really hard to turn, but I still think they are pretty cute for a beach house? I don’t really mind since they give my booth some soft lighting.
The serpentine dresser and the table and chairs set sold and I brought in this set of chairs I acquired from my MIL that I made slipcovers for:
Now that I have more space, I kind of wish I had kept them! I replaced them with these French provincial beauties I reupholstered.
They sold and I brought in this dressing table and chair set I shared not too long ago:
I also brought in this curvy white dresser that I shared not too long ago as well:
It also sold pretty quickly. White usually does!
You can see lots of things have come and gone, and a few things just refuse to go ha ha! You just never know, but eventually everything sells. You just need the right person to come along!
My booth will be very grateful when I finally get my house situated, although I do have a few pieces that aren’t going to work in this house. Those will end up in my booth so that should help.

On Thursday I’ll be back with my Furniture Fixer Upper girls sharing a brand new makeover…this table you might remember from my garage:
I still need to photograph it…my first piece in the new house! I guess you’ll see on Thursday how that goes! 🙂
UPDATE: See how my new kitchen table looks now HERE! 🙂
