In part one of this saga I explained I was in search of shutters to create a headboard that was inspired by this Pottery Barn photo.
They had to be the perfect chippy shutters and I needed at least 3 of them. I figured this was gonna be cake because I see these shutters absolutely everywhere. Shocking as it may be I figured wrong (I know I can hardly believe I was wrong!). Now that I knew exactly what I wanted there were no shutters to be found. I lived on Craigslist, constantly checked out local radio swap and shop and checked out all the local junktiques, nothing.
Sometimes you have to wait for the right thing and this was obviously one of those times. So Wonder Hubby and I decided to take a break from the search have a little fun. We love the Nashville Fairgrounds Flea Market, especially the fall markets. The weather was perfect, Mini was looking forward to spending the day chilling on the couch and we were footloose and fancy free for the day.
The booths with fall decor really put me in the mood for fall. Not an easy task since I detest cold weather and never allow myself to enjoy fall because I am busy dreading winter. I love the process of looking at booth after booth of interesting goodies and anticipating what will jump out and be my "find" of the day.
|These are adorable! I think I want the Flamingo by my pond.|
|Okay, maybe I need a pumpkin on legs instead...|
|Love, Love, Love this painted furniture, the blue is so calming.|
|These architectural pieces are awesome and they inspire more projects.|
Normally I am the dig through piles half of our duo but not when it comes to Fiesta. I lose interest after 2 plates while Wonder Hubby will search indefinately for the perfect pieces.
|Choosing the right piece is serious!|
Although I have never thought about it and figured this would be more than I wanted to spend, I walked over to look and before I got any closer than this, I knew it was perfect! Isn't Wonder Hubby the bomb? It was
I'll be posting the transformation soon.
