A Vintage Little Ivory Table To Adore!

Take a look at our newest, adorable vintage wooden coffee table that we've given a facelift!

Recently, we had our first encounter with furniture stripper (Citristrip), which actually was a bit easier that we expected!  After it was stripped, we took the opportunity to paint the raw wood with original off-white, creamy milk paint, giving it that one of a kind, older, shabby chic chippy paint look!

The two sides of this cocktail table can fold up or down, making a longer "rectangular" top, or making a more round "oval" top, depending on your needs.  We simply ADORE it, and it's so very unique! 

This table measures 50" long and 16" tall. With sides down, it is 20.5" wide. With sides up, it is 38.5" wide.  Interested?  View our Craigslist listing or contact us at TeapotsAndWhatNots(at)Yahoo(dot)com today!  :)

This Key is Adorable!

No, this post is not about the "key to BEING adorable"...

It's about an adorable key!  :)

What could make you smile each and every time you walk in and out of your door, you may ask?  How about this adorably cheerful yellow wooden key holder!  Yep, you certainly can bring a smile to your face each and every time you come and go with this adorable light yellow wooden key shaped tray! Perfect for a place to drop your keys (and then always know where to find them!).

We gave this 12" x 4 1/4" x 1 1/4" wooden piece a new life with a coat of buttercream paint and festive yellow, pink, and green floral fabric (cut to size!).   Then, it was lightly hand distressed, and finally sealed with a coat of polycrylic (my all time favorite and MUST have), it's as durable as it is functional!

Use it for your keys, use it as a jewelry holder to stash your small jewelry pieces, or even just use it as a decorative accent piece by itself-- this little "key" has so many uses!  Click on over to our Etsy shop to check it out, or if  you're in the area, give us a shout and we can meet up!

Teacher Appreciation Week 2013

Teapots & What-Nots is gearing up for Teacher Appreciation Week 2013.  Beginning on May 6 until May 10, it'll be here before we know it!  Are you ready to show your child's teacher how much she (or he!) means to you and your family?! 

How about showing them with a cute wooden plaque?

Or maybe a new wreath to adorn their classroom door?

Or perhaps some versatile and useful chalkboard clothespins to help them stay organized?

Whatever it is, I'm sure you can find it (and MUCH more!) up at 540 Mercantile!  Swing by today, before it's all gone!

I "Mustache" You to "Point" Me in The Right Direction...

Does the title fit this picture??  :)
Okay, so I know our title today, "I "Mustache" You to "Point" Me in The Right Direction..." is a bit corny, but how else would we combine two super trendy styles right now into one heading?!  ;)  It's really more difficult than you'd think!

Anyways, we all know that mustaches have been all the rage lately, adorning everything from clothes, decor, and even baby bedding!  Aaannnddd, we have to admit, we're in love with it, too, just like you!  So, of course, we had to jump on in and create some fun mustache-io pieces:

A fun dark blue shelf with mustache accent.

Distressed blue wooden platter with mustache accent!

Also lately, we've been seeing that arrows are giving mustaches a run for their money...scootching on up to take their top spot!  Home Stories A to Z recently even wrote about it on their blog (read it here)!  Yes, the chevrons seem to start it, but now we're in full blow "arrow" mode...

Adorable blue wooden small rocker with arrows down the back.

Fun desk organzer...distressed blue with arrow design!

So, come see both our mustaches and arrows today at the Mercantile!

We're Feeling a Little Blue...

Yes, we're feeling blue, but no need for tears!  It's just the color, not emotions, silly!  Take a look at our latest booth inventory, inspirationed by none other than that navy, saphire, indigo, blue hue...

Large wooden platter or statement piece along with some wonderful teapots and blue vases.

One of my favorite pieces this month, a tan and blue accented book "holder" (single piece book ends!) along with a beautiful vintage blue and gold leaf teapot!

An adorable blue small rocker with oh-so trendy arrows along side a fantastic tan wooden coffee table with blue accent design on top!

And more blue small goods for your home!

Come take a look and "feel blue" with us at 540 Mercantile!  Happy Saturday!!!  :)
