Call me crazy, but in the midst of all that is going on around with doing some remodeling of our house, I’ve stretched my wings out at the antique mall that I sell at. I’ve been thinking about having a space to group all of the rusty, time worn and farmhouse style items all together. When merchandising, I like to group similar items together for more impact. It just looks better, I think.
Old galvanized buckets and tubs, wire baskets, wood packing crates and smaller decorative items can now all be found in my “farmhouse” section. Though I am still tweaking it, I am quite pleased with the space so far.
Below is an antique wash stand that I bought and had delivered to the store. When it was first put out on the floor, I added the antique wash bowl and the mercantile scale for display. Now, thanks to the store manager Dennis, it is at the front of the store and he has it decorated with fall decor – which looks great against the green tile backsplash.
It is such a beautiful piece and I would have kept it for myself if I had a spot for it at home. The marble top on it has such a beautiful and mellow patina and the deep green tile backsplash is simply gorgeous. It is a super piece, right down to the pretty legs and metal wheels.
I’m a bit “time worn” myself, but I am loving the changes around our house and look forward to having them done here pretty soon. I am thankful to those who do the heavy work for me and make it all come together, both at home and at the store. I could not do it without them.
Till next time…..
