Fridays at Home

5th August 2011

Well hello there, and thanks for dropping by Fridays at Home. See the past two weeks’ posts here and here.

Today, I want to show you just what I do with some of my great finds, and these two are a couple of my favorites.

Ok, so maybe not my favorites as is – the demilune table was all scratched, and the record cabinet…pink (?). But I knew they had potential for some great side tables for the guest bedroom, which is done in cream, white, and silver. So I dug some paint out of the garage, mixed it with a little white to get the shade, sanded very lightly, and voila!

To me, they’re much improved and perfect for my guest bedroom/summer reading spot. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have you made any simple but dramatic changes recently?

  • That.Is.IT. I am flying you to wherever my husband and I end up moving to in Virginia (whenever I can get the house in Florida rented out so I can MOVE), and requesting that you personally design my home office. There. I’ve said it.

    • You sure know how to make a girl’s day… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ooooo, pretty! I love that record cabinet!

    • Isn’t it cool? I love that there is storage inside of it!

  • Ooooo, pretty! I love that record cabinet!

  • my book affair

    Great work. I love the new tables, they give great originality to the room. Nice painting! The bed makes me want to flop onto it with a new book!

    • That is so totally what I usually do. Especially because this room gets a lot of light.

  • They look great. And that headboard looks pretty incredible as well…

    • That headboard was a pretty good deal, and it was black and gold (ick) when I got it. After several tries to rip these medallion thingies off and having it fall over after I painted it white (and got leaves all over it), I love it. I love that sort of Moroccan-style design.

      • Black and gold? Yikes….

        You sure have an eye for the potential of things and know how to put stuff together. Love everything I’ve seen of your house!

        • Yes, black and gold. It was hideous, but I love the sort of Moroccan pattern. Thanks so much!
