OK, finally…today I managed to get a picture of my $50 purchase from a couple weeks ago:
This piece has not found a home inside yet but I actually think I’m going to paint it black to match the living room furniture. I visualize it being used as a TV console. It’s already been refinished on the top part and there are little flaws and discolorations in the wood, so I don’t feel bad about “ruining” a great piece. (some people freak out when you paint furniture-just go read the comments on the “before & after’s on Design Sponge sometime)!
Also, please excuse the ugliness/dirtiness of my garage. And yes, that is another dresser next to my dresser. It came with the house when we bought it over five years ago. And it is still sitting in the same spot in our garage. Because we are ambitious like that. Yeah…ok, moving on…
Some stuff from my Etsy shop made it into a couple of cute blogs this week!
My owl salt & pepper shakers were featured here: http://afinedayforsailing.blogspot.com/
and my mid century orb-shaped planter showed up here: http://deucecitieshenhouse.com/
I was thrilled! Go check it out; both blogs are quite swanky, in my humble opinion.
