We had lunch with Shane and Emily at the Seattle waterfront and looked at antiques. Drove past other vacationing (goose) families to Deception Pass, where we camped and watched the Sunset. Then 2 wonderful days at the Hotel in Roche Harbor where we ate, shopped and watched the Orca whales. Here's a view from the deck of our room. We also antiqued in LaConner and brought new items for Saturday's Sale. This is Laura and her wonderful Moon Rose!
See hours and map and directions on the May 14th post! This all wood storage bench has just a few rubbed spots where the poppy red-orange peeks through. And what a sweet vanity! Redone in my now "famous" 5 step process, dressed with $12 each crystal "vine" hardware from Anthropologie, and the drawers are lined with ivory burlap! What a wonderful old chest. The back says "Dull Ash". The veneer on the sides was too far gone to repair, so Glen painted them satin black. We cleaned this bed up and upholstered the headboard in burlap. Sooo French, the style, Yes?
Just got this rustic primitive bookcase and there will be more pictures posted tomorrow! We've been busy! My first attempt at painting, antiquing and distressing. This is an American primitive dough bowl, over 53" long. Common in Europe but rarely made in the USA. Some call it a crawdad trap, I call it art! We took an old rocker with broken cane and repaired it with upholstery webbing.
This wonderful eastlake mirror is over 100 years old!
Glen and I have been married for almost 9 years now and whatever either of us dreams up, Glen can make it happen! Previously, we opened "1817 Main Street Vintage" in November, 2011 and it was the culmination of many dreams and talents. We have now passed it on to two of our former dealers so we can focus on creating original lighting and curating our booths at OLD GLORY ANTIQUES at 20th and Main in Vancouver, WA.
Having read decorating magazines since the age of 8, I (Marci) have a true passion for design. My addiction to textiles, lamps and furniture compelled me to be quite the gypsy for many years, moving from home to home so I could redecorate!
When Glen and I fell in love and married, we became a true creative partnership. Now all of my crazy design ideas become reality as Glen can fabricate anything, from farm tables with his wood lathe, to industrial lights, many of which already grace local rehabbed homes and bars and restaurants.Please visit us at OLD GLORY.
