Restoration Emporium June 2013 Booth Pictures

June's sale at Restoration Emporium is already here!  It seems like yesterday I was setting up for May's sale. Then I was getting ready for Indiana and now I just finished setting up for this months sale.  May flew by quick!  


I LOVE these painted Mason jars.  I was inspired by It All Started With Paint and her blog post HERE,  These were very easy to make.  A couple of coats of ASCP in Old White, some wax and a little distressing. These are great to use as a vase or add a votive for a subtle glow.  


This old shoe rack is still my favorite find during the month of May!  



I made these cute tea towels out of images I found on The Graphic Fairy Blog.  



This bird house was a great find, but it needed a lot of work.  I literally dunked it in bleach because it was pretty gross.  Then a coat of white paint and some grey paint on the roof and it looks perfect!  








I have been reflecting lately on how the look of my booth has changed over the years.  You can see from these pictures below that I was more about shabby with lots of pink and florals.  



Some things have remained the same - I still love white chippy painted furniture.  However I now prefer some natural wood and rust and galvanized metal, natural fabrics like burlap and unbleached muslin.  I think I would now call myself less Shabby Chic and more Farmhouse Chic.

Your booth is gorgeous! I may have to stop in this weekend! Oh BTW, how do you transfer the images on Graphics Fairy to the fabric? Just curious, those are lovely.

Love your booth, would love to rummage through it. Didn't we all love the pink and shabby. I'm with you too - love the French and farmhouse shabby look. The colours may change, but I don't think I'll ever go away from the shabby, chippy, vintage and junky natural and white look.
