I am very excited to share some news with everyone today! Next month I will be a participating vendor at the Alameda Point Antique Faire! On Sunday October 4th the shop on Irving Street will be closed but you will be able to find Delightful Designs goodies at Alameda Booth D28. For more information including directions pop over to their website www.alamedapointantiquesfaire.com
I have been attending this faire since I moved to the San Francisco area seven years ago! Whether you are looking for something particular or just want a fun way to spend a Sunday this is a great place to do either! As you enter the gates the familiar scent of kettle corn hits your nose... grab a bag and begin to wander the endless rows of treasures. Bring the family there are plenty of toys for little ones to take home! Don't forget to stop for lunch at one of the many food trucks!
Here are some Before & After photos of Items I have found at the Alameda Faire!
If you are a resident of San Francisco you will welcome the change as you escape from Karl the Fog for a sunny adventure...take the ferry if you really want to up the adventure!
Chairs! If you know me personally you know I have a slight obsession... you can never have too many! Chairs are a fun and my personal favorite way to add personality and color to any room. This week I received a rush order for four wood dining chairs to be updated with a matte grey finish, not my usual color of choice but a fun project all the same! The set of Windsor style chairs I used was a mix that I rescued from different places around San Francisco. A light sanding, two coats of Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain matte grey, a coat of satin Minwax polycrylic and these chairs where ready to be on their way to the Hampton's! Safe travels!
As this set of dining chairs were being picked up to make the trek across the country I welcomed another set of four to transform! Here is the "Before" stay tuned for the "After"!
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
There is so much to look forward to this holiday weekend! With family coming to town and my favorite antique faire on Sunday it is bound to be great! To share my delight with everyone I have marked down some of the one-of-a-kind pieces on my Online Store AND for a $20 credit to put towards your purchase subscribe to the mailing list!
