Hi there and happy Monday! I don't know about you, but lately our weekends have been filled with exploring the new surroundings and a desperate desire to bring our rental into the 21st century. Happily, this weekend we did a little of the earlier and a lot of the latter. Come see...
Jeff fell in love with this gigantic black & white image so I said, "Yes Dear, I agree. No Dear, it's not too big." It's huge. And even though it's wider than our newly topped table, I kind of love it. Notice the drapes? No more dated sheers and our bay window has been unveiled. (Ikea picture $49, drapes $25: satisfaction = priceless)
Now for the score of the month... We had searched high and low, new and old, for kitchen chairs with no luck until we stopped in at a used furniture shop on Saturday and found these - vintage Hitchcock chairs covered in dust and at $15 a pop, they were a steal - literally. I am in love with them. (We have the 1932-43 chairs as the seat backs read, "Hitchcock, Alford & Co. Hitchcocks-ville. Conn. Warranted." with the "N's" printed backwards.)
And then (late) yesterday afternoon, we sat back to admire our weekend work. And snoozed.
How was your weekend? Work on anything new?
