A Little Bit of Everything for Spring at Anitques on Cedros

At Antiques on Cedros this month
SOLD
SOLD Heart Design Vintage Table & 2 Chairs


Months worth of painting, long work days, blood, sweat & tears finally left our garage and
made it into our AOC booth this weekend! A lot of white and black & white for spring & summer.
Denise has been wanting to do this white booth since our Vignette's days last year so it's nice to see it come together.
We have several larger pieces for the back wall coming later this week, a dress form or two,
a lace patio umbrella and more vintage patio items.
  
Sweet Vintage 3 Piece Patio set with handpainted cushions,
wrought iron heart shape design with a glass top table

 
SOLD Denise's Black & White stripe handpainted cabinet & Neo Classical Chair
On the wall a vintage lavabo she has had for many years
 
SOLD
There is a pair of these very old, very heavy antique urns
Lights in bird cages have been around for awhile and
we've always wanted to try one, we like the large size of this
cage on a stand and the chandelier was a nice fit 
 
SOLD- This old English Library Table has great patina and age.
The vintage shelf rack is a fun larger size for displaying plates, dishes and collectibles
 
My favorite corner features this old large chest of drawers, a vintage Italian tole lamp with red birds in a tree,
and our dolled up vintage German doll riding her swan
 
In our last blog I mentioned these two would not make it out of the garage without
getting crowned- I was only half right- looks like the vintage German doll got a lovely
 new bonnet made from vintage silk flowers, lace & ribbon-SOLD
Our Spring AOC Black & White Booth
Besides the new booth this week we are also starting our online sales through ebay and etsy.
Just a couple of vintage items listed tonight and more to follow tomorrow- I will keep the blog updated with info & links
 
Thanks for stopping by- Ashley & Denise

In the Works...Black & White Stripes

 
Labor of Love- SOLD
Black and White Striped Hand Painted Cabinet
 
Old hutch hand painted white
Nice shelf height for displaying dishes
 
Wish we had a before pic of this chair- it took quite a bit of work to
make this black and white striped neo-classical chair look lovely
SOLD-Just found the antique doll this week, it's body is stuffed with either horse
hair or straw and although she's a bit bald & tattered we think she's adorable riding the swan-
No chance of these two escaping the garage to AOC without being crowned
 
This old prairie style dresser is a great size with great hardware and patina
 
Just a few of the vintage patio furniture pieces-
we'd like to string the bulb lights above our AOC booth too
which we hope will give a fun outdoor & European flair
 
Fun vintage architectural garden d├ęcor
SOLD- Zeus Head & Bellagio Hotel Relic
 
Just playing around with bits and pieces we created this dome with nest & bird-
it reminds Denise of one of our favorite artists, Sergio Bustamante
 
I'm in love with this realistic vintage oil seashell painting by Eda Leahy-
I wish I could paint like Miss Eda, and the frame is sweet too- SOLD
 
Speaking of sweet I wasn't sure about this vintage cherub lamp purchase, luckily when I brought it in
Denise loved the old lace shade and cherub base
 
Old Italian wall mask transformed with a little chalk paint-
believe it or not I didn't stage this shot with the vintage praying wooden hands-
this is how we work- we've got projects and prayers spread out everywhere :)
SOLD- Mask & Rosary
 
This table was a neat find this week, I want to paint it, Denise wants to keep
it original with it's intricate wood inlay
The vintage iron wine bottle holder & light is a very cool and old piece
Denise has had for years- it's beautiful when lit
 
SOLD
Mid twentieth century Italian hand carved cherub end tables- to paint or not to paint?
Another tough one for us- wouldn't these look great with chalk paint?
Maybe leave the gorgeous inlaid tops as is but paint the side trim, cherubs and legs?
 This one is a to be continued.....unless they sell which in that case would be ok too
SOLD
Many thanks to the Carlsbad couple selling books this weekend,
lucky for me I was the only one wanting the prettiest looking, oldest, worn & torn books
with the cutest titles
