Painting One Man's Junk
This past month or two, my husband has lifted a filing cabinet, a table and an end table from the side of the road, and I grabbed two chairs sitting in front of a dumpster. I'm totally shocked, we haven't done this in a while, but especially my husband, who actually saw most of the items and stopped and suprised me with them. I think my frugal furniture huntingness has caught hold a little spark in him. So adorable.
And speaking of adorable, the end table he grabbed is actually kind of hideous in a really cute way, just the way I like them. I love this table that Holly, from In the Fun Lane painted and decked out with anthropologie key hole knobs. It has a very Alice in Wonderland vibe going on. Well, the end table we have has the real thing, this adorable little decorative key hole. And I only just noticed the eagle drawer pulls when I uploaded the pictures. I kind of love them. I usually prefer silver or a dark oiled bronze, but the patinaed brass is sort of charming.
armoire the blue, Nester style... but then it makes me feel too committed to the color on such a large piece. What do you think? Maybe I'll make a Home Depto run next week.
