Good morning, guys! As I mentioned yesterday, Emmy and I headed over to Sweet Clover on Monday in the bitter cold to set up my space for this weekend’s upcoming sale. I have brought in several new pieces for this month, but it’s also Sweet Clover’s January furniture clearance sale so I’ve marked several pieces way down as well. I had big plans for this all white and wood and glam January sale, but then I remembered that it was the clearance event, so the plans were laid to rest. Today I am sharing my space with you as well as my markdown prices, in case you’re local and want to come snag a deal!
Because I am marking things down the space isn’t as cohesive as I would like, but overall, I am happy with it. I am especially excited about all of the new pieces I was able to get in here. This desk had an old chippy black finish when I found it, and I felt it was charming as is. The antique yellow chair pairs well with it, and did you see one of my favorite pieces underneath? Just look at that marble topped coffee table!
Those greek key details are amazing! The legs are a little worn, but it’s a beautiful gilded and regal piece.
On top of the desk sits a vintage elephant garden stool I found early in the fall, and have been holding onto for the right moment. It seemed to pair well with the yellow and gold accents I have going on this month. He’s a little chipped and weathered, but he is special!
Last week I shared with you the makeover of this gray neoclassical sideboard. It’s the biggest piece I have at the moment, and probably the prettiest!
On top of it I set a midcentury bookcase with cabinet at the bottom. This piece is a great petite size and offers awesome storage. I can see it in a kids room or nursery filled with books and toys. It’s also relatively lightweight and Emmy was able to help me lift it on too of the sideboard. I wasn’t sure what to do with the top of it as I needed something to draw the eye up, but didn’t want something that people really couldn’t reach. I still had the dollhouse in there from Christmas, which happens to be the same gray as the sideboard, brings in the warmth of the wood, and has navy shutters, bringing in the navy of the space. Emmy had the idea to put it on top of the bookcase, and it works perfectly.
Next to the sideboard sits this dresser that I brought in last month, and the little black nightstand on top which I’ve marked down to $35!
I really wanted this new midcentury piece (you can read about its makeover here) in my space, but I also wanted all of my sale furniture in there, so for now it’s sort of hidden but I am hoping to sell some pieces and be able to rearrange and pull it out to feature a bit more. That black nightstand is on sale for $45! The pink table and trunks have also been marked way down.
Adjacent to the midcentury dresser is the gray farmhouse dresser I did for our October sale. It’s not moved, so I decided to mark it way down from $295 to $150. And the midcentury nightstand is down to $65 from $95!
I love this nightstand- just wish there were two!
The indigo dresser is one of my favorites and if it were longer and lower, it would be a great changing table for me! However, it’s tall, and sadly hasn’t sold. It’s been marked from $375 to $225.
I added that little gilded shelf table piece to bring the gold of the space over there as well.
And with that, I am all set and ready for the sale this weekend, thanks to my helper, Emmy, and thanks to Chris for helping me haul and move furniture. It’s a family affair these days! 🙂
And finally, before I go, I want to say a very special happy 11th birthday to this girl, my Sweet Clover sidekick, baking partner, and, as you can see below, the best shopping buddy. (This photo was taken by my friend Gail at The Barn Show, when I took Emmy for her first little vintage shopping trip with me. I told her what we were doing, and she went and dressed and accessorized herself for the occasion.) Emmy, you bring so much color into our lives; we love you so much!
