Drastic Measure For Kitsch n Stuff Antique Booth
The time had come to go to my shop "Kitsch n Stuff" at The Colllinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, CT and take some drastic measures to make the booth look different. For me a radical change is mixing up two unlikely or interesting color combination of kitchen collectibles or creating a vignette with objects that are are little quirky.
Trying A New Color Combination In Your Antique Booth
Start Off With A New Textile Or Tablecloth Color Pattern
On Sunday, I found a colorful piece of barkcloth that was just what the antique booth design doctor ordered. It did the trick. I draped it over a chippy painted narrow table and completely changed the look of this Shabby Chic country console to a funky retro 1950s look. Wow, the power of imagaination.
My advice to my readers who are suffering from winter doldrums and cabin fever is to think COLOR. Come up with some new color combinations in your booth. Let me know how you do?
Tell us what you paired together and how it looked. You can even email me photos of your booth at Dianne@cDiannezweig.com.
