Orange is the new Black

Setting up the table is always fun with a new color.
I have chosen to salute Orange today.

Orange is very fresh and Romantic for summer.
This industrial storage drawer unit is the Queen on the stage.
Staged with greens and pops of yellow the Orange is perfect to welcome in the Spring.

Throw in a fun striped tote bag and some sassy orange flowers on a deconstructed chair...

My mason jars are also perfect if you have a small space that you need a hint of color in.

The fork canvas is back in stock...2 sizes available...
...or I should say, 2 sizes Left in stock.

Every drawer has these fun compartments. 
Very heavy industrial metal !

We're closed today ( Monday ) but come say Hi on Tuesday !!

say hello to the European line

say hello to arabesque…
Think ballet tights, dusty pink tutus and pale tea roses and you’ll have a good idea what to expect from Arabesque.  This decidedly feminine color is also surprisingly neutral, making this pink one that goes beyond nurseries.

say hello to Bergere…
This smokey blue gray inspired by the painted frames of a pair of antique French Bergere chairs.  This blue is more subtle than the other blues in our line, but still makes a statement.

say hello to Layla’s mint…
A version of this warm, minty green was originally custom-mixed for Layla.  It ended up being the perfect green to add to our subtle European colour collection.

say hello to Marzipan…
Named for the delicious almond paste famous in Germany, Marzipan is an equally delicious warm neutral.  It’s an off-white with beige and warm gray undertones. It pairs beautifully with Ironstone for a subtle contrast.

say hello to schloss…
This rich, stone color is named Schloss, the German word for castle.  It’s warmer and richer than Trophy, making it the “greige” that our customers have been asking for!

say hello to Mora…
Mora is named for the famous curvy clocks made in Mora, Sweden.  It is a whisper of a color – a neutral with gray, blue and green undertones.
Soooo Fun.

Painting Workshop - MMSMP

Welcome to my new workshop space.

I have been busy clearing a room at the Barn and re-creating an area that we can do our workshops in.  What a process !!
I really like the results.
Fresh and beautiful.

The chalk board is empty...
but have no fear, it will soon post the upcoming workshops
In Fact, the first workshop will be painting a chalkboard that you can personalize and take home, along with learning milk paint 101.

All of the European Colours are in stock.
Move quickly though...they sell fast.

The new space is going to be perfect to host our painting classes.
I am so excited to get started.

My new sample board.

Stay tuned !!

Happy Sunshine Everyone.

(side note...we are usually closed on Mondays but I have a few projects That I need to work on so I will be there and open for a few hours today ... stop by )

The Barn sits back off the road a bit and there are trees that are forever getting bigger.
So I am forever trying to add things to catch your eye as you drive by.
(it is crazy for me to think I have been doing this almost 9 years now !)

The words VINTAGE and JUNK are my newest "eye catchers."

I was tired of searching for the perfect letter or sign so I just free-handed my own sign one Sunday afternoon. I like the combination and I hope the word Vintage and or Junk will bring newbies into the shop.

The road is still on the other side of a small pond, but this is the view in between the trees.

It would be enough to catch my eye anyway...
The goal is to have someone notice and pass it on to friend's..."have you been in that old Barn on Bunker Lake Blvd... it is full of Vintage find's... we should go."  

The Goal... get people talking... Get people stopping.

So spread the word and we'll see you all soon.

I'm getting excited about some family time over Easter weekend.

to the MOON

There is something about this color for Spring.

Blue. Light Blue. Gray-Blue.

Mix with any other color and you have something going on.  It is such a fun time of year to refresh your space. I did some spring cleaning at both the Barn and at Home. Spring cleaning in my mind is more then just cleaning. It means pulling everything out and Re-Vignetting while you clean.... and then ... loading the car and bringing my used treasures up to the Barn. Stay tuned.

Easter is all on SALE this week.   30 - 50 % off

Spring's Grand Entrance

March is when we unveil our Spring Goodies.

We are starting a little late this year... not because of the weather - it has been unusually warm here. The festivities are scheduled late because of the late arrival of our product. Things have been tied up on the boats and have had trouble getting through customs.

As the boxes arrive... so does the Spring Vintage goods.
Metal, chippy Barn wood and painted furniture.
The mix is SO FUN.

A little Pink...
A little sweet Paris...
