Brimfield Adventure

Okay, I admit it...I am bad with dates, and all numbers...I am surprised that I can count!
I messed up the dates for Brimfield Antique Show and a FB friend nicely pointed that out to me before I left. I was still going on a field trip in my head. I wasn't going to let a little mistake change anything about that. So off I went...There was still bunch of antique sales going on and tag sales. Miles and miles of tents were up and dealers from here and there were still cleaning up. I had a fabulous day with a good friend, cruising through Brimfield and Sturbridge. We ate lunch in a very charismatic restaurant...It was so quaint and the weather was beautiful. Perfect Day!
I was able to pick up some junk...Junk to some folks but treasures with a purpose for me.
I hit a great tag sale and here is what I picked up:

#1 Mirror

#2 Rocking Chair

#3 Copper Plates
50 Cents Each

#4 large Picnic Basket

#5 Tall Bar Stool

#6 steel spoon

Needless to say I have been very busy this weekend....Not much has been done in relation to housework or cooking...But that's alright....It's a weekend!

I started on the rocking chair. When I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it. I cleaned it up a bit and then added 1 coat of Annie Sloan Paris Grey. I waxed the seat a little bit with clear coat and left it as it. What do you think?

Doesn't it look pretty? It's not secure enough to sit in so I am using it as a flower holder. The Orange Mum's I had already picked up look beautiful together

More to come on the rest of the projects as I work through them
Enjoy your Sunday
