A few months ago at the Mill where l have my stall l spotted a friend of mine sorting her wares into a fabulous cabinet. l asked....l BEGGED...but it wasn't for sale.....Long story short, things have changed for my friend and knowing how much l loved it she offered me first dibs. As you can see l haven't exactly artfully arranged anything into it, since l'm not sure whether or not to paint it. l quite like the mustard coloured finish however it doesn't really match anything else in the room.....What do you think, should l give it a splash of paint or not??
A bit Frenchy and nicely crafted, each section of the door contains a separate piece
of glass....imagine having to cut out each of those oddball shapes.
Anyway besides messing round here, l've also been doing a bit of "market research" to find out what vintage trends are happening at the moment. It's good to look with a fresh eye (or two:-) when l'm out junking around.....l've noticed people are very specific in what they want to surround themselves with, they want their homes and how they present themselves to the world to truly reflect their OWN personal style...so they're very particular about what they buy, which means it's not so easy for us to predict EXACTLY what will cater to peoples desires. l'm hoping my list might be of help if you also like to do a bit of trading:-)
