This I found for 35.00 on Craig's list. The girl I bought it from said it was an antique. I am horrible at remembering to take before pictures but to give you an idea, it was white with stickers all over it. The drawers were falling apart. My- oh so talented- husband fixed it all. I painted and distressed it. It is perfect! Just what I needed for my sew room.
We passed a garage sale last weekend and I spotted this table from the road. I got it for 10.00. Again, it needed some love, but Aron took care of that. I painted it and it's like new. LOVE IT!
This lamp was in my attic. It is larger than most and had a brown leather shade. I really don't know why I ever liked it, but now I think I will enjoy it even more. I left the base as it was and recovered the shade with this delicious fabric.
If I could just find something to hide all of this! Fabric is my weakness.
I really need you to come out of hiding. Mom has come along way letting all you creatures live in the house. I'm sorry I always forget to feed you. Thankfully daddy has taken up that job. Mom said she'd hide too if someone was always trying to pull her legs out of the shell. Sorry about that too...I was trying to be easy. I am just really curious. To be honest...I forgot about you when I took you out of the box-a week ago!Last night daddy realized he'd been feeding a sponge and a bunch of shells that I found at the beach the same time we got you. I feel sure you will have plenty to eat. If you get hungry...go look under the couch. There is old cereal and goldfish that should hold you another year. Just please don't bite Hudson the way you bit me. I think that might send mom over the edge. Thanks for understanding...Cooper
p.s. If you decide to go to heaven...could you do it in my room. There is already a funky odor that mom can't figure out in there...she might not notice.
After many months of looking, I found this on Craig's list for 80$. It turned out just like I had imagined. Now I'm hooked. So...between taking care of 3 boys, a husband, a house, baseball, and sewing...I think I will be scoping out furniture to revamp!
