Now my house is pretty full already, and because the prices are about 50% higher than our local flea market, Brimfield is not the best place to buy furniture. It is, however, and awesome place to get decorative accessories. Here's a working list of what I'll be keeping an eye out for on Friday at Brimfield:
1. A rustic antique pine console table for the front porch. Really rustic. I know, I just said the furniture up there is expensive...but if I can find one for the right price!
2. An antique small black framed beveled mirror for the family room
3. Antique educational posters or charts
4. A set of antique schoolhouse style chairs
5. An fabulons antique oil painting to put on my new antique easel (must remember to show you all a picture of the fabulous antique easel I got on Sunday for $5)
6. Antique signs...always. I just can't resist
7. A couple vintage suitcases to stack on the lower shelf of the rustic pine console table
8. One of those amazing antique amoeba shaped wire baskets
9. A long antique bench
10. An antique tray, probably wooden, to put on the coffee table
Here are some images of what I'm hoping to find.
Are you going to Brimfield???
|A stunning oil painting that would look awesome on my vintage easel. It captures the colors of fall so perfectly.|
|Such soft color to this. It really balances the hefty construction. The one drawer is a quirky charming touch to this console table|
|I'm obsessed with this table. It's saved in my 'interiors' folder on my desktop. The truss construction reminds me of an old bridge. If I saw this at Brimfield I would basically just open up my wallet and dump out everything I had for it.|
|This vintage french education chart would be amazing for the fall decor.|
|Another really beautiful vintage french chart. These come in such a grand, impressive size. Great as single impactful piece of art hung on a big wall.|
|The shape and dimensions of this mirror are really stunning. I'd like to find one with a frame in an old black paint surface though.|
|My set of five antique school house chairs. If I can ever find another set, I'm keeping them! I want to switch out the chairs in my dining room for fall. |
The ones I have now are great for spring and summer, but a little dainty for the colder seasons.
|This painting is breathtaking. So much color, such great composition. Perfect to put on the easel...which I think I'll put in the corner on the enclosed porch.|
|A really great antique trade sign.|
|Pocket watch trade signs always bring big BIG $$$ so I won't likely see one in my budget anytime soon. I always look though, always hold out hope. I will get one someday, even it means laying down some serious cash to do it.|
|I think a sweet stack of vintage suitcases will really help to capture the vintage schoolhouse vibe I'm going for in the fall. They're everywhere so I should be able to get some for pretty cheap .|
|If I can find a basket that's the right size, I'd like to put in on our dining room table and fill it to the brim with mini pumpkins and gourds as a fall centerpiece.|
|The old green paint on this antique bench is so pretty. I'm such a sucker for a rich emerald green color!|
|I really like the lines of this antique bench. The curves of the legs add a lot of extra charm. I want to get one to use as a coffee table on our porch.|
|I'd like to put a big rustic tray like this on our coffee table to coral all the magazines that accumulate there.|
