Yesterday the rain held off for most the day and I dragged my extremely hungover self out of bed at the crack of dawn to hit up the flea market.
I also drove up to a far distant Connecticut town after work yesterday to pick up two wickedly cool vintage industrial work benches (kitchen islands here we come!) and do an interior design consult. I don't have pictures of the work benches because they're both still upside down in the back of my truck. I'm letting the rain give them a well needed bath. Here are my spoils from the flea market-
|A Queen Anne curly maple side chair purchased for my mom.|
Likely made in Connecticut of Rhode Island, 1760-1785.
|The most unbelievably fantastic pair of antique mahogany framed and beveled mirrors. American, 1890-1910.|
|This is the little one. It's about 24 inches tall.|
|Big and little one. I'm not sure what I plan to do with these. Maybe paint them and sell them, maybe keep them as they are and hang them on my own wall.|
|Antique blue green wide mouthed bottle. It's not that old, probably early 20th century, but It's big and I liked the form.|
|A set of vintage copper (or possibly brass) directionals. Look at the wonderful verdigris on them.|
|They're big too.|
|This isn't antique, but it caught my eye and the price was right. I'll be tucking it away to use in my fall decor.|
Just you wait, I have a whole post planned for the fall 2013 decor- look for it later this week.
|This is such a sweet antique nightstand. It's solid mahogany and it great condition except its poor little feet. Because of the feet, I'll be painting it and keeping it for myself.|
|The prize of the day- this FABULOUS antique Lane cedar chest in the form of an 18th century Chippendale lowboy.|
|drooool. Ball and claw feet, and elaborately carved knees. I've got big big plans for this looker.|
