the barn in wellman, ia

my mom and i went the the barn sale in wellman, iowa this past saturday to see my bestie and her booth. it was such a beautiful day and was so much fun seeing what all the vendors had to offer! i’ll come back with another post of stuff i came home with!

the barn 1

the barn 2 the barn 3

i feel in love with this girls booth, love&grey. if i knew the gender of our baby i would have for sure bought one of her awesome pieces. you can see more of her items on her facebook page.

this next vendor had the cutest little camper all decorated. you can see more pictures of it on their facebook page too.  it was so neat i wanted to climb right in it.

the barn 4 the barn 5 the barn 6

i ended up coming home with this gem! i was on the hunt for a dresser for the baby’s room. i think i will use this in our bedroom and take the one from our room and use it in baby’s room. it’s hand painted and done very well! nick isn’t the biggest fan of the writing but that is something that can always be repainted, as of now i think it’s pretty cool! the barn 7

if i had the spot for this it would have been loaded in the back of the truck. i am obsessed with the green paint used. it was actually an old record player cabinet. so neat!

the barn 8

this booth was SO cute. they have such a pretty website too! i did come home with something from her that i will share later. the little bonnets were so darn cute, again if i new our baby’s gender!

the barn 9

i have a wall hanging like this pictured in my head in our baby’s room. it was so perfect.

the barn 10

these more masculine wall hangings caught my eye too! may have to use them as inspiration for a diy project.

the barn 11

i did buy a little wall hanging from this next vendor. had some super cute things…i wanted most of it!

the barn 12 the barn 13

these blue chairs may haunt my mom and i for a while. we walked away and went back to buy them and they were sold. i love the way the blue and the rust play off each other.

the barn 14

now on to linley’s booth! i can’t express how proud i am of her! she makes the cutest things and is one of the hardest workers i know. props to you lin!!
