Skirted Vintage Furniture

While visiting Aunt Jewell and family, in St. Charles, Illinois, we stopped in a favorite shop, in Geneva.

It’s called Artemisia, and they have a wonderful mix of products, both old and new.

I noticed two pieces of furniture, dressers actually, with ticking and burlap skirts. I don’t know how practical they are, but they sure are cute!

I think it would be a great option for open shelving. It went into my mental idea file to use down the road.

I also thought that these baskets, converted into hanging lights, were pretty cool as well.

I liked the galvanized steel sheeting that was used on a piece of furniture and on this darling shelf.

Someone spent a ton of time folding all of these book pages, to create this paper project.

I find that when I go shopping now days, I’m spending a lot more time looking at how things are displayed, than I used to. And I’m always looking for new ideas on furniture restoration. Fun stuff!

I hope you have a marvelous day!

All the best!,
Barbara
