Fancy Stools and the Naturalizer Shoe Winner


I'm having fun getting merchandise ready for the Fancy Flea in Lakeland Florida.

I've always wanted to be a vendor at a show, it's been on my bucket list for a long time and I'm finally going to do it!!   It's 11 days away

Here's a couple stools that are anxiously awaiting the Flea


I painted these stools in heirloom white then after a little sanding I added a water slide decal And Graphic from Graphics Fairy...I added the rose to the graphic




I always finish my furniture with 2-3 coats of Minwax wipe on polyacrylic from Home Depot


I will price the little stool at $28 and the large stool at $34
These water slide decals are available at The Polka Dot Closet


Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter!

Oh, Look what I made to wear at the Fancy Flea


Oh Ya, I'll be styling.....Or looking silly!

Happy creating!

Carol

Love the stools. I just bought 2 stools at our flea market and plan to refinish them. I like what you did with yours. Never tried the water slide decal and think I'm gonna give it a try on my stools.

Carol! I can just imagine how beautiful you will look in front of your awesome and beautiful booth! You did great on the apron, and I bet people will want to know if they can purchase an apron, too? The stools are lovely, just like all you do.
Congratulations to Chrissy on the shoes, too!

Love the stools and your new apron! Best of luck at the "Flea". Have been following your blog for just a short time now and have loved everything about it. Your a gal after my own heart! Love Florida, too! We have a family place in the panhandle, love every single minute I can be there! Have a great week! Would love to see pictures of your booth. :)

NanaDiana said...

Carol- Those stools are adorable. I love them and I'm betting they sell first thing. Now...what I am also betting is that someone tries to buy your apron right off your body! xo Diana

Lori @ applegrovetreasures said...

The stools look great and you will too in that adorable apron! I'm in Orlando and hopefully will try to make it to the Fancy Flea. Would love to know more details if you get a chance :)

Barbara said...

Love the stools! Everything you touch becomes a cute shabby chic that everyone loves! Have a wonderful time at the show and I hope you sell out early!

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

The stools are so pretty! The addition of the rose to the graphic was a cute idea. I hope you have made plans for something to hold all $$$ that you are definitely going to be bringing home. I would love to come to the sale but that is a little out of the way for me. Be sure to take pictures of your booth if you can find time. We would love to see all your wares displayed. You must not be sleeping or eating to get so much accomplished. Bet it is fun, though.--------

Hugs and good luck, Ginger

Hi Carol,

I love the pretty stools!!! I used the same graphic for a pillow. I added a butterfly to mine.

The apron is so cute..... far from silly looking. It's a great way to hold onto your cash :)

I agree with everyone, the stools are too cute and I'm sure will be a quick seller.
I love the apron. My niece in law made my sister and I aprons for our business with the company name and our name and we get so many compliments when we wear them. I'll sure you'll get the same.

Hi Carol, Love the apron. You will be so cute and stylin too.
Great look for the stools. They will not last long.
Have fun, it won't be long now till your sale. Hope you take some pics.

Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. You asked about my roses. Yes, they are my long time hand painted rose designs blended with the graphics.

Have a creative week.

The stools are gorgeous; that rose is just the perfect touch of pink.
And the apron? Wow! So cute and such a brilliant idea!

Debbie said...

I love the stools. I have one around here *somewhere* that could use just such a facelift.

Congrats to the winner. I shall not pout since I've won so many myself. It would have been nice for sure, though!

And I love the dress form with the apron. I just can't imagine that ANYONE will be cuter there than TPC.
