As I shared yesterday, we were in the final days of finishing up the details of the office makeover for the One Room Challenge when this 9-drawer dresser in my booth sold. It was definitely a harried few days trying to get it all completed but we rallied and I was able to deliver this painted patio set to the booth this past Friday.
We’re gearing up for summer tourist season at The Pickers Market which means I’ll need more smalls in my booth than bigger pieces of furniture. Smalls are typically items that can be easily carried in a suitcase or beach inspired gifts to take home to loved ones.
When the galvanized folding station sold, I brought in this vintage inspired metal piece. It reminds me of an old card catalog.
I painted this metal tea cart with white spray paint to give it a fresh look and staged this area with items that have been inspired by summer camp.
Most of my customers have second homes at the beach and we get a lot of tourist that come to our area for the beach too. I try to keep a collected look for the space which means lots of layered neutrals mixed with coastal accents. Baskets are great for everything from sandy flip flops to carrying picnic supplies to the beach.
I’m loving all of those painted fish on the wall. They’re a great backdrop to all the painted tables.
I’m using the wicker settee as an anchor until I can find more dressers to bring in because dressers are hard to find sometimes and sell really well.
I’ve sold out of most of the British tins I brought in a few weeks ago which is exciting. It’s always fun to see what new things customers are looking for. This end table is the one I painted recently. The new hardware has been a big hit!
Now that the patio table and chairs are in this space, the whole booth feels packed! I’m hoping to hit the treasure trail next week to find a few more pieces of furniture especially dressers. There are some days I go out and find exactly what I need and other days I come home completely empty handed but the hunt always keeps it interesting.
See you guys back here tomorrow. I’ll share a look at how I created the coastal inspired First Aid Cabin sign!
