Man I hope you guys follow me on Instagram, those people get ALL the good secrets. Here is a story. I dropped my phone and cracked my screen a few weeks ago (I have insurance, its all good.) I have been meaning to take it in and just haven't made time. Well this morning Dyl dropped it again on Ivie’s Faux Bois Concrete Floor and massacred it. Like it was so sharp I lost about 5 layers of skin just sliding open my lock screen…as a matter of fact, I don't know if I have a fingerprint on my right thumb anymore.
So as I was backing up my phone and downloading everything off of it in preparation to kiss it farewell, I was going through all of my pics and there are a TON of great things that I haven't shared over here on the blog.
So lets catch up shall we?
Lets begin with this metal cobalt card catalog. I found it for $25, and it was DIRTY. It must have been sitting outside with all of the 15,394 drawers open because they were FULL of cotton fluff from cottonwood trees. It was not fun for this allergy infested mama. But I mean, I would totally take cotton fluff over spiders. So I should be counting my blessings.
Its the perfect width for the spot underneath my giant shelf and thrift store art.
I currently have this freakish obsession with metal chair/stools. They make my spray paint covered heart sing. These were all around $8.00 each
And I am pretty sure that I have not properly introduced you to my new dining room chairs. They were the score of the century, I grabbed 7 for $120 total. These ones that are identical, retail for a meager $850 PER CHAIR. (Insert Carlton happy dance here.) They are getting a quick fabric swap (tutorial coming soon!) and then moving into my dining area.
Quite a few months ago a local hotel cleaned house and gave everything to ReStore. I found 3 of these vintage hairpin end tables for $8.00 each and I wish I would have gotten more. They go anywhere and work with anything. So congrats to the St. George ladies that also bought some (and if you want to sell me a few, hook a sistah up!)
Hope you guys have a fantastic Tuesday!!
