Happiness is My New White Vintage Table

13 11 2009

Oh, the joy that this brings me!

We bought a Hutch, set of matching danish chairs… oh, and a HUGE UGLY table that was thrown in with the other two items off of craigslist. For 9 months I have been staring at the hideous beast every day. Finally we got around to selling it on craigslist and I purchased a beat up ugly table for $7 from the thrift store.

Two months after that (I move slow) I went with my hubby to pick out paint and actually remembered to buy all the needed supplies. I waited until he had left (I work best when he is gone because the fun in the painting is to be able to suprise him when he gets home!) then painted 3 thin layers of primer and 4 coats of brilliant white paint.

I then dug into my fabric stash for some fabric he and I had picked up a year ago in LA and never figured out what to do with. I wasn’t really sold on it, but we had some people come by to pick up our danish sofa and the two of them plus Lee decided it’s a good combo…. Stacie-1+ Lee-3= Stacie Looses =(

Dang.

So, once I find my staple gun that he bought me for valentines day I will attach the fabric… Also, I am drying some coats on the chairs… so ignore those.

The Value of a Vintage Sweater

13 11 2009

Ah, the Art of the Sweater. In my opinion, one can never and I mean NEVER have enough Vintage Sweaters. They add a unique touch to what you are wearing no matter what the season it is. The same sweater can take you from a lovely layered look in winter to thrown over a swimsuit in summer. Plus when complimented who doesn’t love to respond “Thanks. It’s Vintage.” Or maybe that’s just me…

I love the Texture of the Shag Rug with the Chrome Lighting  on the ceiling.

I obsess and dream of graphic prints because I don’t get to have them. I could, but I’ve noticed that my husband gets really distracted and unsettled so I try to keep things minimalist for him.
