Vintage Market here we come

Moving along redoing furniture and surprising myself a bit.
Don't know if it's the change of season, changes I'm seeing in my favorite decorating magazines, or just changing my own style a bit.

All three of these projects should have had before photos.
The round drum table was originally done in a dark mahogany finish. It had boards that didn't quite match up on top and the top itself was partially stripped. After sanding the top and seeing the beautiful wood grain I decided to just stain it in a warm wood tone.  The rest of the table was painted in a stone color.  The legs were distressed slightly, and I'm very happy with the result.

Next, the candle/plant stand needed its top refinished and the rest was left as found, traditional dark wood stain.  Love the tall lines -
A great piece.

Finally found this table with great lines and a plate glass top. Every other aspect of the table was in need of a redo.  Satin black paint did the trick - emphasized the nice
silhouette and resulted in a table that could serve as a nightstand, an end table, or even a cocktail table.

We'll still have lots of shabby and primitive pieces and accessories to go with them - everything vintage or hand crafted, or redone.  Join us at the Vintage Market
September 7 and 8 on Main Street in Roscoe or visit us at 1710 N. Main Street in Rockford
Wednesday - Saturday 11-4.
