I had an unexpectedly great weekend. My hubby was glued to the NFL draft all weekend and I had thought that was going to be on my own. Then my Mom suggested we make a trip to Asheville to do some thrifting and the boring projects that I had planned (second coat of paint on our fence… BLAH!) went out the window.
First we hit the Tobacco Barn. My mom found a pretty great table and I bought a painting (hello, $20 for an oil landscape)! But overall, it was an off day for the Tobacco Barn. Then we hit a new one that my Mom discovered on a previous trip. Sweeten Creek Antiques was AWESOME. Decent prices and TONS of inspiration for future projects. Here are a few of my favorites that I spotted:
This mid-century china hutch was calling my name. It was only $199!!! I had expected it to be priced at $1000. It was large, in excellent condition and has so much potential. I’m pretty sure I’m going to regret not buying this. In fact, I already am…
I seriously considered this 1950s enamel bar card that was in excellent condition. It was only $50.
This guy just made me laugh… in the middle of all these antiques was this bizarre digital picture. Which one of these things is not like the other?
These dining chairs were super cool with that awesome chevron.
Lots of great pillows in fun fabrics…
I’ve been trying to challenge myself with mixing prints lately and these were both done really well.
That’s hand painted! It was kind of stunning.
This guy inspired a pillow that I made yesterday.
I have a couple of things to show you that I picked up but I want to wait until I get them fixed up and hung.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last week of the Color My World Challenge! All of the participating blogs will be hosting one large linky party so that you can show us how you implemented color in your house! I’ll be choosing some of my favorites and featuring in them next week.
