Christmas Open House at Old Bank Antiques

I promised I would be back soon to share the "after" picture of the chest that I recently took to my booth at Old Bank Antiques.

I love this color combination - Old White and Duck Egg
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

 A reminder of how it looked with just the Old White paint

 I traded the original pulls for these pretty 
French ones that I had in my hardware box.

 The top has a recessed slab of marble that
has white and creamy tones 

I added turned wooden legs to the bottom of this old vintage suitcase-
my Christmas music books are hiding them here

I filled the suitcase with shredded paper
and tucked in lots of handmade ornaments

 Little hand dyed bottle brush trees made the scene again this year

 This was the first year I made cones
I started out with rolled up sheets of music
but soon decided I liked the look of aged coffee filters better

 Inside my canvas, vintage fabric, and lace booklets 
you will find a single Christmas carol

 I only ended up with two of these,
but I think I may just have to make more

 I think the little glitter coffee filters cones are the sweetest things ever!

 This pretty booth belongs to Leda and Jack
My wicker mannequin has the pleasure of modeling
the gorgeous antique lawn dress




  1. Rhonda- Everything looks so nice. I love those little cones and the idea of the suitcase on legs. You did a GREAT job making over that chest! Hope your week has been a good one so far! xo Diana

  2. Rhonda,
    My goodness...your booth looks that old suitcase and those cones are beautiful!!! Did you see Laurie Anna's shop?


  3. What a great piece, Rhonda! It looks like it's working perfectly to hold your other items, too. Love the cones! It all looks so pretty.

  4. I love those kinds of Christmas decorations. They would fit in with my decor this year! You did a super job making those. I'm very impressed! Love all that glitter too.

  5. Hi Rhonda, the chest turned out so pretty, perfect color combination. Love all the wonderful Christmas goodies, and how you've displayed them in the suitcase! thanks xoso much for linking up to the party!
