August Back to School Sale at Sweet Clover Bar

Tour our booth in a vintage barn packed and styled with lots of cool tones and unique vintage decor!

Yesterday, in the blazing heat, Cassie and I moved furniture, staged and took photos for the last Sweet Clover sale of the summer.  I was a sweaty, hot mess, but it's always fun styling and staging our booth.  This month, we brought in more of our favorite cool tones and accented with warm colors to transition into fall.   We added lots of new furniture and vintage decor that I'm excited to share with you today.

My MCM hutch has been in the booth for a few months, so we brought it out front and I marked it down drastically hoping for a quick sale.   It's styled with lots of green and blue glassware as well as various milk glass. 

The Keep Right road sign was a recent auction find and I'm pretty sure if it doesn't sell I'm stealing it for my own home.

Just across from my hutch is a beautiful deep teal and wood MCM dresser that Cassie painted.  Isn't it gorgeous?

Also, new this month is a nine drawer triple dresser that I painted but never shared on the blog.  It's a beautiful deep green and a solid piece of furniture.  It was such a beast to work with and move around that I decided not to take pictures and just move it straight to the barn.

The vintage theatre chairs are still available ( I actually have two sets of three) and sit beautifully on top the triple dresser.

Do you remember the No Vacancy sign I shared the other week?  I brought one to the barn and if it sells this month I'll make a few more.

My favorite area of the booth is probably the decor on Cassie's black hutch.  It includes all of my favorite things and I just love how the styling turned out.

Also, new this month, are two beautiful dressers painted by Cassie.  One is a distressed deep teal and the other is a beautiful mix of black, wood and gold.   (Disregard the crazy orbs in the photos.)

You may remember these green boxes from last month and my Etsy shop.  I had 10 and only have three left and just love how they pair with vintage amber bottles.

And because it's back to school time, we staged an adorable little desk in the center of our booth.
