New Acquisitions and Flea Market Finds

This is really the peak of my work season. I've got furniture requests pouring in, and luckily, I've also got furniture practically coming out my ears. And since nothing makes me happier than sitting outside on a sunny day and painting a new piece of furniture, all is well.
      Yesterday's flea market was fantastic. I could have bought much more, and was really only limited by the space in the back of my truck. By the time I got home I had things piled and haphazardly ratchet strapped in place. I also picked up some furniture over the week that I thought I'd show you!

I actually bought this antique mahogany hutch off my friend, Leslie. As soon as I saw it in her house I fell in love with it. It's so incredibly handsome.

One of the guys at the flea market had this pair of antique green mixing bowls. I was fully prepared for them to cost over $100. Nope, $6 for the pair. I was soooo excited!

I found this pair of vintage solid cherry side tables at a church tag sale I passed on the way back from the flea market.

I've already modified that piano bench to be an ottoman for my antique green velvet couch in the guest room.

This solid maple desk was just too cute to pass up.

I love these antique ladder back chairs. They probably date to about 1880 and are in an early or possibly original green paint. The two big chairs need new rush seats, but they're otherwise in wonderful condition. I don't have a spot for them in my house, but I bought them because they were just so rare and beautiful.
 I'd like to find them a good home. 

And finally, I found this set of vintage plates and mugs in a box marked "free" on the side of the road at the end of my street. They're in fabulous condition- eight large plates, eight small plates, six medium plates, nine mugs, a sugar bowl and creamer- all in my very favorite shade of chartreuse. Yesterday was my lucky day!!

just look how perfectly they match my new island!
