So, last weekend, I ventured out to the Junk in the Trunk Trio’s Vintage Market. It’s basically a big craft sale, but with really cool stuff. They had about 60 vendors – all selling “junk” and/or treasures, depending on your view. I took a girlfriend and wisely left the hubby behind. We both scored some great treasures.
Here’s my loot:
More on that in a minute. First, let’s check out what my friend, Kristen nabbed:
How adorable is that chevron bench?! She also got that cool sconce, a couple of vintage clutches, and some sweet subway signs.
I got a major coup with this $12 vintage dish display rack that I’ll transform into diaper storage for the playroom:
I plan to paint it to match another piece in that (yet to be revealed) room. The top shelf will display pictures, the bottom will hold diapers and I’ll hang some mini-baskets with diapering-essentials from the bottom. That’s the plan anyway. I’m EXCITED.
I also scored this sweet pillow for the playroom:
Awe, it just makes me, well, happy! And “happy” is exactly the mood for a playroom. Amen?
I also snagged a couple of pieces for the new gallery wall in the Kitchen/Family Room:
I’ll paint the distressed piece solid white and display some fabric in it. These two items will be among several on this new display wall… where we’re kissing goodbye to our wedding wall:
It’s just time, you know? The wedding was so pre-Kenton and pre-baby in my belly. Time to update things!
So, I got enough “junk” to keep me busy for a while. I’m definitely looking forward to the next Junk in the Trunk event in September!
