Fall Market Days at Sweet Clover Barn

Take a tour of a vintage market booth subtly decorated for fall and Halloween!

It's been a busy month full of early mornings, work deadlines and getting the booth ready for the September Sweet Clover sale.  I always feel like each month sneaks up on me and this month was no different.  Last month, I sold all my large pieces of furniture, so I've been extra busy getting furniture painted and prepped for the upcoming sale.  

The September sale marks the first fall sale of the season, which meant Cassie and I were able to bring in lots of new decor and fun touches for fall and Halloween.

Being that we both love cool tones, we kept the traditional fall colors to a minimum and opted to keep the holiday decor on the neutral side.

The charcoal gray chalk painted dresser sits in the front of our booth and is topped with blues, greens, cement pumpkins, hops stems and of course a creepy naked doll.  Isn't' she perfect for Halloween?

Just across from my dresser is a beautiful dark teal double dresser that Cassie painted.

We topped the dresser with lots of brass decor and added a touch of Halloween by topping brass candlesticks with mini skulls.

The Coastal Blue triple dresser that I just finished painting (I shared the makeover process in my IG stories) sits below the theatre chairs, which I just marked down.  Can you spy the fabric pumpkins I shared on Monday?

I also brought in the Iron Ore painted vintage Bassett server that I REALLY wanted to keep.  I even planned a dining room makeover around this server, but unfortunately, it was too small for our space.  I was so bummed, but I know it will make a great addition to someone else's home.

Another piece that I dreaded parting with was the tall oak dresser that I sanded and refinished.   I kept this piece in my office for a few months, but we have big plans for the space and I really need to downsize.

Next to the oak dresser is an emerald green dresser that Cassie brought in and I just love the bright pop of color.  We styled it with lots of amber bottles, vintage books, cameras, clocks and small touches for Halloween.
