Building up my ‘beachy blue’ inventory for the next big booth update

Not sure exactly WHEN I’ll be re-doing the space and bringing the beachy blue stuff back in full force; but I’m getting ready!

This wire bird cage and metal stars were spray painted.

This vintage child’s chair and step stools were hand painted, then sanded to distress.

Likewise on this little wood wall shelf.  I’m guestimating it will be late July / early August when I’m able to take the time to do a MAJOR booth re-do.  Right now I’m focused on selling as much as possible at Camas before our scheduled move out date of July 9th.  July 8th will be the LAST  day to snag any half price goodies at Camas; as we’ll start moving out first thing in the morning on the 9th.

This little ‘smoking table’ was made using a big candle holder as the base and a round tray for the top. 

 

Painted the whole thing black first, then the aqua, then sanded to distress. 

This vintage two tier drum table is a recent re-do.  Was originally a beautiful mahogany wood that I restored with some oil finish because the wood was just too pretty to cover up.  Alas, no one else seemed to like the original color (it’s gone without selling for over a year!) so it was time for a re-do!

A couple of good coats of the aqua paint; then sanded to distress. 

That was the original color.

Oh well, so much for preserving the natural beauty of the wood, eh!?!
