MY NEW ADVENTURE AT THE MALL

Welcome to "Tattered Elegance". This is my own booth in Lone Star Antique Mall. I am still moving in, but thought I would give you a glimpse of it now. This is the sign I made with the name of my booth. It is the foot board of a twin bed that I found on the curb. I painted it "Cottage Cream" and filled in the name is shades of purples with some purple flowers. All my furniture will be Cottage Cream along wth most of the decor. I would like to do the walls darker, but everything takes time.

I also need a wall on this side of the booth. Maybe later.



This is an antique shelf that Rick spray painted and I added the cream. It sold the first day it was in the mall.


I have another shelf that I am working on that will take the place of this one. It will hold a lot more things and will look a lot better.


I bought this bakers rack from the lady that had the booth before me. It is iron and I love it. Need to add some cream to it.


This is a lock box that I made to hold my jewelery. My first attempt at making something out of wood.


My walls really need some work. I will be moving a large vintage chest in to sit on this wall before the weekend. I will finish it tomorrow.

I also bought a big fish bowl that sits on an iron stand, it will hold the lace I have for sale. And today I cleaned up my bird bath and it will hold all the mofits and buttons. I am so excited about having my own booth again. A lot of work, but sooo much fun.

Hope all of you have a wonderful tomorrow!!!

Pat, I forgot ~ how about a couple of old doors for that wall you need. I add shelf brackets to the bottom of the door on both sides to stand them!
