Vintage Inspired Booth

Hi Bloggerettes!   I want to show you this beautiful vintage crystal chandelier that Peggie found. It's at our Perfect Imperfections booth at Fancy Flea Antiques.  We have been fluffing it up today and
I want you to see all the lovely things we've been adding.
I wish that I had taken a before picture of this vintage wooden shelf.
It was the ugliest shade of green that you can imagine!
We painted it with several layers of paint, then sprayed on ceiling plaster, wiped it with stain and sanded over and over again. Whew, makes me tired just talking about it!
But, the end result is a great looking piece!

We added lots of vintage and some repurposed pretties...

Check out this sweet handmade vintage wooden birdhouse.
See the little birdie checking out the weather.

I guess you could say among my many passions and obsessions, that my booths at Miss Minnie's Antiques and Perfect Imperfections at Fancy Flea are at the top of my list.  I know they are for Peggie too and all of you that have booth or shops.
If you have thought about opening a booth and you aren't sure whether or not to take the plunge.  I say go for it!
You'll be glad you did.  It will reward you over and over again.
Not just monetarily but passionately!

Join Debra and the others there for some great Vintage stuff.

Olive Cooper said...

The glass chandy is splendid. My hubs and I often talk of getting a space so thanks for the encourgement. ♥O

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Ceiling plaster?? I wish I could see that in person. Sounds like an interesting finish that won't look like every other painted white piece of furniture around.

The booth looks great. You have some really pretty things and The Touch with arranging them.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Wendy said...

Erin said...

Be still my heart!! I am totally in LOVE with that shabby leopard print stool!!

That whole vignette there, the tray, with the bird house, that stool, with the little pop of greenery....I could look at that picture all day!

My Shabby Roses said... the chandelier Sissie! I think they add so much to a booth and yours is very pretty!
Have a good evening!

Blondie's Journal said...

I love the chandelier! Very pretty. And I am wondering what the ceiling plaster does for a piece of furniture. I've never heard of that! Finally, I noticed the birdhouse right away. I want it!!! :-)


Kathysue said...

Sissie, your booth looks so pretty, I can only imagine how great it looks in person. all your special touches are there!!! Happy weekend sweet Sissie,Kathysue

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

Hi Sissie!

Your booth is displayed so well! You have a gift for layering. I'm learning how to "fluff" by your posts. The chandelier is beautiful! I bet it will be gone before the weekend is over.

Linda (Nina's Nest) said...

Beautiful post! You have great taste. Your booth is fabulous! Linda

WhiteWhispers2u said...

Hey Sisie~I love the header and that pink and green is to die for Yum!

My Grandmother has about 6 of the most beautiful Chandeliers just like that one.I would so love to get just one myself.

Fancy for sure, love it all~Cheers Kim

Pamela said...

I just love everything in that last photo Sissie!!!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Sissie, the vibe in this booth is different, but I love it all the same! You have it set up so nice!


Ozma of Odds said...

...oh Sissie! Everything you do is just so lovely!!
Love the ruffles:)
xo, Rosemary

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sissie, you have such a nice booth. I see so many at antique malls that just don't look nice like yours and I usually pass a lot of those up when they aren't appealing.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Sissie, You really know how to decorate a booth. Everything is beautiful! I'll have to try the spray on ceiling plaster. Does it give a look similar to Spackle but easier to apply on a large piece?

Debra@Common Ground said...

Oh Sissie, I always love seeing what you have in your booth spaces, so many wonderful things! That chndy is just gorgeous, thanks for linking up to the party!
hugs and kisses

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Obsession is the appropriate word, I think! Ha! Your devotion shows! Love the chandelier!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

OOoooh, Sissie, how absolutely yummy everything looks! I am really loving that chandy and the candle with the burlap trim and all your sweet pillows!

Big TX Hugs,
Angelic Accents

CHERI said...

As usual you have put your special touch on things! Everything looks lovely and that chandy is to drool over.

The Tattered Cottage said...

Miss Sissie -
If I lived closer that sweet chandy would have a new home...with me!! The shelf looks great as does everything else :) Yummy-Licious treasures!

Ayadeco said...

You present beautiful pictures. I love this shabby style, btw, chandelier is spectacular!

Tina @ TinyBear said...

Everything looks so pretty Sissie. I would love to go hunting in there

Great pics Sissie! The chandy is beautiful, lovin' the candle holder to the right in the third pic too-Happy Weekend:@)

KATHY said...

Hi Sissie, I love the chandelier!You have so many gorgeous things.


trash talk said...

It looks gorgeous as always, but what I really love is how your enthusiam spills into everything you touch.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Honey did we ever sit down and figure out how far your booth is from my front porch. I just love love your pretties.
Strange you showing the chandelier first thing because I woke up staring at one that I have been dying to re-do and I thought of you and how you might do it then I come over here and there you are showing us one. Spooky.....
Happens to me a lot in blogland.
I do though think of you often wishing we lived closer but girl friend if you saw my house today you would never ever want to come back to see me.
I guess I should close but I laughed about the comment you left about the kitty and the vaccum cleaner....great idea
Love ya

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

That is interesting, that you used ceiling plaster to shabby up that bookcase. I think your bookcases at home would look marvy done up like this bookcase with those kinds of items on display. I was fluffing up the house today! LOl. Pink drapes gone for now...can't sit still. I so wish I had a booth I could focus on. Yours is gorgeous.

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Your booth looks gorgeous! I sure love that chandelier! It would be great if you could tell us more about your paint technique using spray on ceiling plaster. I have never heard of this and I am very intrigued!

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Your booth looks gorgeous, Sissie! Love that chandelier! I've been wanting to start an online shop, so hopefully that will fulfill my passion for all things vintage as much as your booths have. :)

Theresa said...

Hi Sissie! Love the bird peeking out of the house! I found a chandi at the GW yesterday taht i'm going to be sharing soon, oh my gosh I was doing the most obnoxious happy dance in there! The sad part was I was alone at the time so nobody to twirl me! Your booth looks wonderful and I want one so bad one day, you are an inspiration :) Theresa xoxo

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

This booth is just full of beautiful goodies...thanks for sharing it!


Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Hi Sissy and Happy Pink Saturday!
Your booths are just amazing. What fun I would have shopping! The chandelier is just lovely!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Hey Sissie,
I'm taking a break from my pharmacological duties to catch up with my friend & drool over the awesome things in your booth. Boy that chandy would look great in my house! You have a gift for finding the diamonds in the rough & turning them into treasures.


June said...

Oh boy...does your booth look awesome Sissie!!! And that chandelier was a wonderful find!

hugs to you...

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Sissie, I do love that sweet birdhouse! Love the chandy too! The bookcase looks great; reminds me of my parents' last house they bought.
It was a beauty, with tons of character and had been built for a colonel. But the previous owners had painted the kitchen in, of all colours, the most horrible shade of green and black; yes, black! My mother performed her magic on it and turned it into a stunning room with soft aquas and pinks. It was beautiful! Amazing what a little paint and sweat can do! Thanks for sharing. It's always a pleasure to visit you. Have a wonderful weekend.

Honey at 2805 said...

Everything you do is so lovely. As I've said before, I want to shop at your place!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

You did a great job with the shelf, and that chandelier is beautiful :-)
Enjoy your weekend!

Mary Ellen said...

Sissie your chandy is awesome!! Your booth space is too!! I had just re worked my last week and someone came in and bought a few pieces of furniture so was running around trying to find more pieces to replace them with! I put way to much stuff in the booth so it takes alot of reworking to get it back in order-- love the sales though!!

bee blessed
