Getting Ready for The Farm Chicks Antique Sale 6/2013

Wow-March was a whirlwind of family activity: baby shower for my daughter (see previous post), my birthday, goint to my first  Cirque de Soleil performance (Amaluna), my daughter’s completion of an associate’s degree in Interior Design, Easter, my grandson’s 4th birthday, and the biggee: the arrival of the granddaughter the end of March! Mother, baby, and grandmother are all doing fine!

But now as April is near an end, things are ramping up in preparation for going to The Farm Chick’s antique sale where I will have a booth selling antiques and vintage goods. It is the first weekend in June and is incredibly well-attended. So much so, there were 10,000 at last year’s 2-day show. Display and merchandising is very important so I am having fun putting together the space. Fortunately I have the area in the garage so the booth display is being staged. That way  it can be tweaked, revamped, and altered as new items come in.

While out hunting for treasures, I  found a white painted bed frame with 4 tall turned-wood legs. They were so long the idea came to me to cut them in half to use as table legs. We did a 1/3rd, 2/3rd split as I had a vision of having a smaller table to tier on the top of the big main table. We had weathered wood planks which became the table top and were recently white-washed with paint, diluted with water.

The bed set was sold for $12 and as the planks were already here, the table project  came together nicely and very affordably. It will be even more of a bonus if they end up being sold at the show!
