Brimfield Antique May Show
Before we left for Brimfield I started making the “Brim Bag” It is an oversized flea market shopper with a burlap base and vintage fabric on the outside. I made a few out of some “cheetah” upholstery fabric and then I also used some vintage repurposed curtain fabric, the cheetah fabric bags are all gone!
I will be making more soon and you can get one here or at the July Brimfield Antique Show.We made lots of decorator pillows and sold many of them. I just can’t resist buying nice fabric and a little goes a long way when making pillows. I also love to sew with vintage linens.
The most favorite things we sold this show were the painted furniture pieces mostly dressers but side-tables and coffee tables also found homes in various other states the pink commode went to Canada with some awesome fun gals who spent the whole week shopping Broomfield. I’ve been going for 6 years and I hardly get off my field!
This dresser has been called the princess dresser and with its new coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Antoinette and Pure White it sure fits the bill! Please excuse our blurry pictures, it had rained and there was so much humidity that we couldn’t keep the camera from fogging up.
My husband built and re-built this one out of spare parts and it was easily sold.
This was the most photographed piece in our booth up until it sold at the end of the first day! My all-time favorite in Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint French Enamel.
We’ve been making these dog beds out of antique dresser drawers for a while but they have not sold so well so we will retire them, before we did however, we spent one day photographing little dogs on the beds and they all wanted one!!! Painted in Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Shutter Gray.
You can see the other dogs who posed for us on our facebook page. I look forward to our week at Brimfield Antique Show and get all excited for weeks as we work with little sleep to get ready. Hubby calls this “Brim-Fever” and I get it three times a year!
