pigeon basket coffee table (recreate maybe)
The Barnhouse Market blog and all of the blogs that share photos of their markets are all a source of constant inspiration. chippy peely paint with farmhouse style. LOVE it. Must plan to make a trip to Battle Ground.
a photo of Dan Marty's work via a blog cruise. the subway sign, industrial laundry cart are definately on the want list.
the name of the blog is posted on the picture as I cannot remember now. i was searching for photos of tobacco baskets in use and vintage mannequins. this particular photo satisfied both.
i love these Leo containers from Restoration Hardware and am sure these are on the things to make instead of buy list.

all the antique market scores
my factory cart table. *sigh* dreaming and wishing for about a year now, and it is finally mine, at a whole lot less than retail value. i almost missed this man, as last year he was always out in the open and after many rounds I still hadn't seen him. Almost in tears and then... Trevor said hey isn't that a cart there? where? in a little tent in the back corner up a ramp and in the back of a barn. i got the last 1 and it is a 6 wheel version (unusual) a 1500.00 value at our local Restoration Hardware. relief...
plus of course the greyed wicker planter, 2 huge galvanized buckets and an old pulley(not trying to copy the RH look at all)
tub wash stand(now happily home at the end of my bed(pics to come), my Ikea Carbouy, and a wonderful mission chair with original leather, a steal at 40 bucks.
An overall wonderful day complete with garden center stops, new pond pot fountain and a trip to one of my favorite inspirational stores Accents for Living in Aberfoyle, Ontario
Have a happy weekend. Happy Antiquing!
