Spring had sprung!

It’s OFFICIALLY spring!  We’ve been having unseasonably warm and DRY weather here in Oregon for almost a month already though.  Gonna be hard to deal with those ‘April Showers’ this year after having been so spoiled so early!

This early spring weather has been a HUGE help to me with catching up on all the furniture painting I was unable to do outside last summer when it was just TOO HOT to work outside.  I might even have my entire furniture ‘project stash’ painted up before I move!  Fingers crossed!

Switching things up in my booth at Stars a tad and going with more WHITE for Spring.  Here are the latest pictures.

For a better color impact, I’ve attempted to put all the white inventory at the front, left side of my booth.

And the turquoise stuff at the back, right side.

P1190508View from the outside corner with some more turquoise shelves on the outside far left.  (those turquoise shelves are fairly ‘permanent’.  They CAN be moved, but it’s a LOT of work to unload all those dishes and move them!)

P1190468I brought in a couple of vintage white wicker tables.

P1190466The top one was ‘dry brush’ painted white, and the round one spray painted.  Which look do you like better?  Solid white or the shabby distressed white?  I tend to do the dry brush more often because at least that way if the purchaser prefers solid white, they can easily repaint it themselves.  But once it’s solid white there is no going back.  It’s all about leaving options open.  The more options, the more buyers it will appeal to.

  1. Love your displays! You inspire me!

  2. Aj, do you still have the Roly poly bunny? I would like to buy it.

  3. Hi Ramona! I won’t know if the bunny is still available until my next trip in, next Wednesday. If he IS still there, I’ll bring him home to ship to you. He really IS cute!!

  4. You asked about the wicker….I think I like the dry brushed look more.

  5. Everything looks great. I like both wickers !

  6. Your booth looks fab! Do you come over for the Farm Chicks here in Spokane in June?

    • I WISH I could do big shows like Farm Chicks! But with my damaged spine it’s just ‘too much’ work in a condensed time period.

  7. I like the dry brush shabby chic wicker best. I think it makes it look older & gives it more character.
