Despite a heavy heart on this national day of remembrance, Keely and I took to our usual mode of therapy and set about to work some magic and transform our Motley Junket booth space for the impending season of goblins, ghouls and jack-o-lanterns. Motley Junket was in desperate need of some livening up. Three truckloads of stuff in a coordinated scheme of black, white, orange, creepy-crawly and rusty-crusty later, we had turned our little 9 x 13 space into a haven of spookish delight......
Thank goodness for tall husbands who don't complain when asked to clothespin bats to branches 8 feet up! And when asked to hang umpteen million frames in a "cattywompus" fashion. Poor guy! But such a trooper!
This utility cart below (SOLD) was as rusty and crusty as they get! Mod podge and book pages to the rescue!
The petite rocker has just the right amount of distressing.
This old wire display rack (SOLD) could be used in so many ways. We chose to display some cool old flash cards...
Keely came across a bunch of heads that add a hint of weird eclectic here and there.
Rustic boxes, rusty wheels (SOLD), chalkboards, an old jug and other eccentricities....
We still have two of these amazing Kramer Bros. urns in rusty black. We added glass to the top of one to show how easily it can be transformed into a side table either indoors our out. $150 for the pair!
blacks crows nestled in old drawers....
We currently have 8 of these vintage industrial metal drawers freshly stenciled with random numbers. There's more on the way!
This just happens to be one of my favorite finds! I came across this very large funky and whimsical mid century clock, very much in the same style as a Syroco piece, but unmarked. It started as a brushed gold color and was updated with fresh white paint. The clock mechanism still works and keeps good time!
Many random smalls!
We still have the industrial drawers too..... (SOLD)
Keely brought three of these hang-able mannequins.
This one is wearing a vintage black dress, perfect for a Halloween costume...
We always try to bring a few pieces of newly made over furniture. I opted to use a combination of black and white on a couple vintage french provincial pieces. The white hardware really makes a statement against the black! Those glass items stacked "cattywompusly" there in the white bowl are really unique sideways laying vases. And that black and white enamelware seltzer bottle is pretty cool too.
The other piece I transformed with black and white is this french provincial sofa table.....
As you can see, it's surrounded by tons of accessories just perfect for your Halloween holiday home!
Hocus pocus, Motley Junket is focused!
Keep dreaming ~
