The Farmhouse Show

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing weekend!  
It is 82 degrees here in the Willamette Valley, and I am taking a break from gardening to show you a recap of my space at The Farmhouse Show!

I only had time to snap some really quick shots, but here's how it looked:
(if you follow me on Facebook, you got to see most of these already!)


It took me both set up days (Wednesday afternoon and most of the day Thursday) to get things looking the way I wanted.  

Lots of driving back and forth to set up and replenish over 3 days, plus a work shift at the show on Thursday.  
All that was wedged in between softball, family activities, and regular life.  
No wonder I only got one post in last week!


I really loved the vintage school map- I had hoped I could find a spot for it at home, but no.
It sold the first day.


It was also fun meeting some new friends while I was there, and there was a great mix of vendors at the show.  I did much better than last year, and only came home with two bins of smalls, and both my outdoor sets I previewed a few posts ago.  
Not to worry- now I have some springy stuff for my booth at Aunt Bee's House!

What I was most happy not to have to haul home was the dining set I was working on the last two weeks.  I never did get a chance to get some beauty shots of it, so here's a few from the set up:


The chairs were all covered in a horrible red vinyl.  
I replaced them with tan and white ticking.
{You can see before shots in my Instagram feed- see top right corner of my blog}

The table was also in really rough shape when I got it, and a perfect candidate for getting a paint job.
I completely sanded and then stained the top in Dark Walnut, and gave the table and chairs 3 coats of Cottage White with the Webster's chalk paint.

Just a bit of distressing to highlight all the character in this beautiful set.  
6 chairs, and 2 leaves for this beauty.  
I think it is my favorite dining set to date.


I also brought some planter boxes that I dressed up with a white wash and graphics:





I loved the little crystal lanterns hanging inside the umbrella.  


There were lots of hanging flower baskets for sale for pre-Mother's Day weekend.
The funky green chair was something I picked up on my last visit to see Amanda.
It went home with someone the first day too.


Of course, I brought in lots of flowers too to tuck into vases, watering cans, and bottles.




I sold all of my ironstone.


Thanks again to everyone who came out and supported the show.  
We all appreciate you!

I'll be restocking my Etsy shop soon, and my space at Aunt Bee's House!

  6. Hi Denise!!!

    Haven't been on the computer for ages, so I'm sorry I missed your Farmhouse Show.

    How I wished I lived closer. I would have had to bring a truck, because I saw a whole lot of items that you have been coming home with me.

    You did a great job on the dining set!!!!! I also love the *PinkPostcard* sign. Great display!!
