Vintage Fair Victoria- Furniture

For everyone that visited my booth at the Vintage Fair, Thank you for all of the interest and the positive feedback. It's nice to know that there are so many people out there that love re- purposed and re-furbished Vintage pieces.

The show went very well for me, so there are only a few pieces that remained unsold at the end of the fair.
Some of the pieces I had at the fair are shown below. 

 First up are the pair of lovely Vintage chairs. Their original condition was pretty good with only a few small scatches and dings. They have been painted with Milk paint in White, antiqued to bring out the details and a little distress for character. They are nice solid pieces that will last for years to come.  The upholstery I used is a soft grey blue chenille fabric, that will go with most decors but they are easily re-upholstered if you have a different color scheme or specific fabric in mind. Dimensions are: 37"tall x 19-1/2" wide and 22" deep.

Next we have the Black Oak Oval Coffee table with the embossed detailing in white on the skirt, legs & top.
This is a solid Oak table with the exception of the inset oval which had an inlaid cross-hatch pattern.
Another sturdy piece with graceful lines and details.
Dimensions are: 28"wide x 48"long and 16-1/2" tall.

 Next up is the Black "Suede" Armchair. 
Not real suede I'm sorry to say but this fabric makes a good imitation and is very, very durable. 
It also gives the piece that luxurious feel. 
It is highlighted by nickel-plated upholstery tacks that give it a bit of bling which is a nice contrast to the distressed black wood frame. 
Again another solid piece made from a solid hardwood so it is nice and sturdy and very comfortable. 
Dimensions of this chair are 36-1/2" tall x 24-1/4" wide and 26"deep.

Then we have the Re-claimed Wood Coffee table:

 Size is : 24"wide x 51-1/2"long and 17-1/2" tall

 This is a nice solid piece that was inspected by a professional woodworker.
The wood was originally from what I believe to be the wooden sides of a truck bed. There were two long pieces and a short end piece.
Picture of one of the pieces is below.
This is a really unique piece that has so much character and will last for years to come.
This is not your pre-fab big box store table.

I managed to get my hands on some more shutters so I will be doing another two sets of shutter headboards/room dividers, for all the people that were disappointed that the first set was sold. 
And these shutters are even nicer that the ones I had at the show!
Sorry all of the pieces have new homes.
