Although I spent the majority of my weekend watching basketball, I was able to work in a trip to Scott Antique Market in Atlanta. Best of all, I had a wonderful tour guide--Sherry of Design Indulgence. We also got to shop with Ally of From the Right Bank (she already blogged about her finds here).
I did more looking than buying. There was so much to see that I became completely overwhelmed and couldn't think of one little thing I wanted to look for. Of course, I took pictures of some of the pretty stuff we saw so you can share in the fun. . . .
A picture of Sherry taking a picture of some of the great pillows we found:
As you can see, I could've wasted alot of money on pillows that I didn't need.
A huge table full of vintage book pages, perfect for framing. There were so many possibilities for some beautiful wall galleries here. . . .
I took a picture of this chest because I'm really wanting to work something with a weathered finish into our family room. Haven't exactly figured it all out just yet.
There's something so striking about this oversized nude (that's a funny phrase in itself. . . ), but I'm not sure my husband and/or children could handle it in our house. It wouldn't be worth the comments I would have to hear on a daily basis :)
Loved these lamps (and those cute little metal bamboo tables they're sitting on):
Another great finish. I'm thinking of seriously beating up our TV stand. . . .
I've been looking for a cool, vintage sign to hang over our pantry doors. Unfortunately, I think this one translates to say, "Don't think about it. I cost $900." Yes, $900. Moving on. . . .
Something else that cost $900, but perhaps a better buy. . . this old shelf. If I had a huge mudroom (and a bigger budget), I would fill this cool piece with all of our shoes:
I spent entirely too long staring at this fabric and eventually talking myself out of it. . .
So, what did I buy? A pillow for our sofa and this:
Don't worry, I have a plan. But, you can only imagine what a treat it was to carry them through the hotel where we were staying. . . After getting lots of strange looks in the lobby, I rode the elevator up (in silence) with a guy who turned around as he was getting off on his floor and said, "I'm sure whatever you end up doing with it will be great." Umm, yeah, thanks. Maybe he reads my blog?
