Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
I hope your summer is going well... I don't know what it is these days, maybe it is summer and I tend to think of being by the water... But I have been inspired by deep blue hues.
After I had seen a friend's navy blue painted dresser, I just had to look for a pretty blue chalk-paint.
I painted these two Pennsylvania House night stands (marked 1978) in a what is named "nautical blue." I didn't buy anything expensive, just the paint that they sell at our local craft store chain, AC Moore.
I love how the blue looks in contrast to the original finish of the three drawers. I did have to touch up the brass hardware on the sides to be well, less brassy, to match the drawer knobs. What do you think, could they be end tables as well? Like in a lake or beach house?
If they take awhile to sell, I may be tempted to bring them up to our place.
This past weekend we had some fun finds:
A FREE coffee table and two tiered stand. FREE!!!! We were in the right place at the right time!
A beautiful oval mirror, a Danish modern nightstand,
a coca cola soda crate/tray, a silver plate vase with raised flower detailing, Florentine style metal/gold wall sconce,
ironstone platter with a blue transfer
painting of lilacs (1.00),
I think we did pretty well! We finally had to get something for Bebe because she was SO upset about being out yard sale-ing, so she picked out a game she liked.
Now let's get to this week's features:
Amy of Brocante Treasures went back to Paris for a visit and my-oh-my she takes some wonderful pictures! I couldn't
decide which one I liked the most so
