Out with the old . . .
and In with the old!
There are some new old things in the booth.
Ms. Gilda would like to introduce you to a small-scale mahogany
bombe chest, with a William Morris paper decoupage top.
She's a curvy gal.
A formerly beat-up 1940s mahogany chest has new life
in a coat of Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint,
and a well-buffed coat of wax. Decoupage on top: origami squares
and Ralph Lauren glaze in tobacco.
A 50 year old lift-off tray table gets a glam
treatment with hot pink paint, and a
modern decoupage paper under the glass.
Snazzy. And very pink.
Yes, it's a strong but beautiful color, and such fun.
I can see martini glasses and bowls of
Cheez-Its on this table, can't you?
Somerville Center Antiques is at 34 West Main Street in
downtown Somerville, New Jersey. Lots and lots of dealers,
but I think I'm the only one with a
hot pink tray table in residence just now.
Lots of new "smalls," too - from the serious to the very silly.
Which makes it fun! -- Cass
