|Examples of Pieces at the Market|
I did eventually meander over to the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint vendor and bought three cans of the paint: Old White, Old Ochre and Paris Grey (I have already opened two out of three and started using but I am saving that story for another post). As always, I did look for inspiration throughout the market and saw a lot of painted, chalk paint and others, furniture and other items. I don't think I will have any trouble using the paints.
In addition to the paints, I bought two elongated metal and mirror sculptures for my foyer which I am redoing to make way for an oversized iron and wood door we have purchased for this space. I was looking for something to hang on each side of the door that didn't overshadow it and didn't create too much disharmony with the large number of art pieces and mirrors I already have in this space. I found these two star-like pieces in an interesting booth; took photos; send a picture of Bette holding one to give my husband a sense of scale and size; and, actually got a response from him - in addition to "how much", he said "I think they would look nice"! So SOLD!
