( all images sourced from Kijiji - an alternate selling site but the same as Craig's List - I buy from both )
125.00 - metal bed frame - loving it!
Can you just picture it with tons of white frilly pillow and a down comforter - this was meant for a breakfast in bed setting !
40.00 ( Kris you'd be jumping all over this ) love that it's narrow - and the frosted glass is pretty special !
What a statement piece for a child's bedroom - 125.00 - painted in pretty carrousel colors - ribbons cascading down from the top - magical !
350.00 - antique double bed - I'd love this in the guest bedroom - these were so common when I was a little girl - especially in country cottages.............white lace curtains swaying gently - fresh cut flowers in vases -
200.00 - LOVE LOVE LOVE - as is - sort of Gustavian, no?
250.00 - wish I had room for this - I wouldn't change a thing on this - sheer aged perfection !
Oil stove - 1916 - 200.00 - the curves are just beautiful - wouldn't this be beautiful in a kitchen corner?
80.00 - great chest - again I wouldn't do a thing to this beauty !
1500.00 - with leafs - gorgeous ! ( I'd have to reupholster the chairs )
110.00 dollars - love this style of dresser - I've worked on quite a few of them, they never get old ( pun
intended lol )
This mirror has been reduced to 20.00 - I often buy these because they can dress up a dresser so beautifully
Old milk container 35.00 - it's been painted - so I'd paint it again - white with a graphic transferred on
950.00 - can you imagine this painted and with beautiful linens?
385.00 Cedar Chest
30.00 dollars - oh the possibilities are endless with this one really
95.00 - hand made copper stove utensils - these would look so gorgeous in a rustic kitchen
( or spray painted black in mine ) I adore them
Ok - I could do this post until it was 20 pages long - so I'm going to leave you with this - brace yourselves
because there's not one of you that wouldn't give anything to have it !!!!
It's 900.00 but it's a beauty ( and a half ) - expensive until you see what Restoration Hardware charges and then it's worth every single penny
Suzan says - I'd give anything to have that in the garden - under a tree
John says - WHAT??????????? ARE YOU NUTS - IT'S 900 DOLLARS !!!
John says - IT'S ALL RUSTED AND THEY WANT 900 DOLLARS?
Suzan says - That's called Patina - and it's perfect - absolutely perfect
Suzan says - Wouldn't it be fabulous to have a nap on in the shade?
John says - Get a Hammock - a lot cheaper and a lot nicer in my opinion.
Now there's nothing wrong with a hammock - in fact I want one - but how can he not see the beauty in that day bed?
It's like comparing the Love Boat to the S.S. Minnow !
Are there any items here that you'd give anything to have?
I've started tackling one of the teeny tiny bedrooms upstairs
It's going blue and white - walls - ceilings and floors
Half way through it I decided to take a nap and gently fell asleep to the music of John cursing and yelling as he removed the linoleum from the floor ( which is a horrible horrible job I have to admit )
This is what's left after removing carpet - paper - and 2 layers of linoleum................
It's the underbacking of the last layer of linoleum - and it's sickening to get rid of -
The only redeeming factor is that it IS in fact a teeny tiny room - ( we still have 2 other rooms - one of which is large - with floors like this to do )
That " fur " gets scraped off by dampening the floor with hot water...............one little section at a time. I'm not sanding ( maybe lightly - but I'm not doing the whole sanding of the floor with an industrial sander ) this floor will be painted white like the rest of the upstairs.
But it's a cute room - tucked under the rafters - with lots of charming details like that window - and the slanted ceiling and the alcove and that tiny Alice in Wonderland door !
It can accommodate a double bed and 2 dressers quite easily or a dresser and a little reading alcove and BECAUSE it's so small I can afford to add a little luxury to it without breaking the bank.
So I've been looking at wall paper for one of the walls - not sure if I want to go with a vintage themed
( both selections found on Amazon )
or a toile ( the toile melts my heart to be honest with you ) but I love love love the pale yellow against the blue flowers too !
Anyway - big plans for a little space are in the works..................
Oh and I'm doing a " walk " for Cancer tonight - just in case you thought I was lazy.............
From 6 p.m. until the wee hours of the morning...............
Have a wonderful weekend everyone -
Partying over here !!!
