We added a desk area for guests in the entry way of the house. The bed-spring, turned memo board acts as storage and allows us to pin notes or flyers about area events. It fit perfectly between the two front windows.
To carry the industrial theme through, we used metal electric conduit from Lowe's for our curtain rods. Curtain rings with clips give us the flexibility to change curtains if we want to since the rods themselves are permanently installed.
We needed six curtain panels, so I was looking for the most cost effective buy. We found basic 100% cotton (linen-looking) curtains called Lenda at IKEA. They come with tabs (if you prefer that look) and cost $19.99 for 2 panels (55" X 98"). Can't beat that!
The primitive desk was found at Uncommon Objects in Austin. Steve Wiman has put together one of the best vintage co-ops in the country. You can get lost looking at all of the amazing and interesting pieces they have so well displayed. A must see when in the area!
The chair with the number 3 came from a dealer we met at one of the Round Top Antique Fairs. Since we have a number theme in the house and a fusion of industrial and vintage, we thought they worked perfectly in our space.
A wicker bucket holds a collection of small glass apothecary bottles that will be for sale in our Marburger Farm booth coming up April 1-5, 2014. We will be in Tent C booth 10 and hope you will come by and say hello!
