Great bones, decent fabric, lovely legs - a bargain for $40This is my latest buy - just $40 from Vinnies! Usually I see something and then wait a day or so cause "if it's still there, I'm meant to have it." But this time, I just grabbed it. Good thing too, because it had been in the store for a whole 20 minutes, didn't even have a price tag on it, and while it was being stored before I picked it up, a fair few women were peeved I beat them to it! Since handing over my cash, most of my free time since has been trying to decide what to do with it. So I thought I'd make it a little community project (plus, I want to use the "vote" tool just for fun - cast your vote to the right.)
Ready for my close-up
I quite like the fabric - for now - but am debating either to Black Japan the wood (a really dark brown stain) areas or make them distressed white. I'm thinking the fabric I eventually cover it in should be light as so much of my furniture is not, so a duck-egg blue would be brilliant in the living room, but then a creamy colour would be perfect for the bedroom which, when it is actually finished, will be creamy blushes, greys, whites and silvers. IF I get my way of course...
Easy-peasy earring storageFor the moment, it's quite nice paired with my nana's old mannequin and earring display, which by the way, is super-easy to make. Just tie some cotton around the ends of pinboard pins, jab into the wall and hang your earrings from. The holes are easily filled if you want to move it, but in my case, the walls still need to be painted, so no problem!
So, any fabric suggestions? I had a super-quick look online this morning and found these from Warwick Fabrics.
