Wrought Iron Finale

Well, I finally finished up the rest of the wrought iron furniture
and moved it to the store tonight.  Everything was again painted with Flat Black
Rustoleum and the seats covered with the cheerful geranium fabric I purchased at
Jo-Ann Fabrics to match the rocker and end table you can see here.
But let's start with the before picture.

I forgot to take a picture of the chairs before, but you get the idea.
Instead of putting the furniture in my space, the owners had me
display it in the atrium.  It's a room with lots of natural light that used to
be the greenhouse room when this store was previously a florist.  
When it rains, you can hear the pitter patter of falling raindrops and the
room was the perfect setting for outdoor patio furniture.
So here it is, with a few accessories I brought to sell with it.

I told you I was falling in love with this cheerful set, but realized it was
a little too large for my screened-in porch, making it a little
easier to let go of.
We pulled these gorgeous vintage screen doors from another vendor's 
space to help set the mood.  Hopefully she won't mind, but if she
does, we'll have to put them back in her space.

We moved the wrought iron rocker and end table over to 
accompany the table and chairs to make a more enticing set.

Doesn't this look like the perfect place to sit down and enjoy a meal?

How I love these doors.

Next we started working on the adjacent wall and display area, trying
to continue the red and black theme along the wall.  The rest of
these pictures are things from other vendors and local artists that
I can take no credit for.

At this point, both of the owners needed to leave for the day, so they let
me stay and play and finish the whole side of this long room.

Furniture sells so quickly from this store, that daily they need to rearrange
the displays.  I'm sure they enjoy it, but today they both seemed relieved
to not have to worry about this room and gladly left me to "have at it".

What a fun way to spend an evening, playing with an endless supply
of beautiful things.

What absolutely gorgeous displays you have created! Actually, it has such a great "undisplayed" feel to it that it does make you want to sit down and enjoy an evening there. :-) You did a fabulous job transforming the patio set and we are so thrilled you linked this up to Inspiration Friday this week!

HI, this is my first time participating in 'Feathered Nest Friday' and I am slowly making my way to all the parties.

I could help myself but I saw the red geraniums in the link picture and just had to come see what it was all about. I adore geraniums in almost any color but currently I only have two pots of red ones. We have just moved into a new rental home and I am slowly trying to make it a little more cozy (while still unpacking boxes!).

Hope you have a great weekend!
