~VINTAGE WHITE BOOTH & A LAMP MAKEOVER~

Yesterday afternoon my Mr. AGPMan and I went down to my booth space at Edmond Antiques for some redo work.  I really don't need him to help me spruce up my area, but I do need his brawn once in awhile when big things sell and other things need to be moved in~

HE BE THE MAN! :)
Furniture continues to flow in and out!  I've sold a lot of pillows and painted items but it's the larger pieces like chests, dressers, desks, etc., that seem to be the best sellers.  I'll know more after Christmas.  The desk you see above was in my guest room for years and in our daughter's room for years before that.  With all the work going on in our home I just don't have room for it anymore...
 Brought in a few cottage rose floral pillow in to spice things up!  No matter how much white I love there is nothing better than a soft and squishy feather pillow to soften things up!  The sagey green one above is an old Jay Yang print.  Perfect for a porch or sun room...even in the fall.
 I've hoarded this vintage Laura Ashley fabric for far too long!  The time finally came for me to use some of it for a couple of pink rose feather pillows....  LOVE THIS FABRIC!
This cottage rose pillow was made using an old Raymond Waits fabric.  Soft grayish-blue ground with lush pink roses!  If the ground on this fabric was soft white I'm telling you I'd NEVER have let it go!
After I left my little shoppe I stopped off at my favorite thrift store before coming home.  Found this darling, darling, DARLING vintage lamp with wood accents.
Snagged it for $5.99!  Today I worked at transforming it for my booth or maybe my website.  Not sure...might put it on eBay, too!  Anyway...right now I'm searching for a petite little shade to fit it.  It's got to be one with a finial crown and NOT the kind available in the stores today.  They all have the deep well brackets and that won't work.  So...back to the thrift store I go!
Here's a sneak peak at where I am on it today!  It's ready for some sort of French style artwork and a lace-trimmed shade....I'm on the hunt!  More soon.  Can't wait to show you the final result.

Don't forget about my GIVEAWAY going on right now!  Click HERE to read more about it!

Hope you're having a happy day...

Love to you...

Your booth is beautiful, Rebecca! When I have a booth, this is the look I'd love to attain. Love those pillows! I have a waverly bed sheet set that is very much like the first and last pillows you show. They have such a romantic vintage look to them. Great lamp ~ great price! You've got a nice blank slate to work with now. Can't wait to see what you do!

Dearest Rebecca,

You are still in your hum; one can tell. Great jobs you've done on the bigger pieces and this lamp will no doubt look like a new darling very soon.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

What a LOVELY space you have for your shop Rebecca! Very inviting...and I'd float right into yours if I were in that antique shop. :) The lamp that you're redoing is so sweet. I just love to pick up individual chairs, and lamps. There is something about giving them new life that is so much fun. Maybe it's because the chairs have stories to tell of all the conversations they've heard through the years (they're sworn to secrecy of course:) And the lamps have "seen" more than their share of life. :) And when you turn on a light in a room, there's something magical ...everything looks romantic, soft, and peaceful. I guess that's why I'm drawn to lamps myself...and of course, my chairs. :) Blessings friend.
