Let’s start with what I bought: A little antique light fixture for Cookie’s room… $125. Now, to spray paint, or not to spray paint?

Some photos from the shop. (As I went further into the back of the shop the natural light gets crappier and the pictures look yellow. Sorry.)

A little secretary.  Sofa and gigantic light fixture in the window.  A banquette for under $1000. This asian vignette called to me. Love that settee.  Cute little chairs everywhere.

I loved that light fixture on the right. A little windex and a new lamp shade and we are good to go. I think it was around $300.

All in all, some really well priced antiques. It’s worth stopping in if you are in the area. Go soon though, because a lot of great stuff was already sold.

  1. Dont paint it. It looks like it is the perfect dulled paint.

    Is that not the perfect chandelier for her room? I love.

  3. Those wallpaper panels (or are they paintings?) are TDF in the Asian grouping. Also, love the chandy you got! So sweet.
