This was taken months back, but I wanted to show you the benches at the table which are mid-century oak coffee tables I snagged curbside. We cut them down into benches and then casually covered them with an antique French linen sheet embroidered with my monogram.
I was too lazy at the time to sew slipcovers. Maybe next year, Miss Mustard Seed.
The dining furniture and entry table were ugly, less than $99 each at an outlet, and received 3,000 coats of a linen white paint.
Antique French prayer chairs sit under modern quote panels created by me. (both are Oscar Wilde quotes)
My office with a pop of red.
The best feature in the room. OH, YES I swing. OFTEN. IT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM.
This dropleaf table was our very first antique purchase and was used as our kitchen table in the 80s and early 90s. The old croquet box was found in a magnificent cellar in our very first home in the Chicago area. Since that house was torn down, it’s about all that remains!
Where we live. More old wood boxes: One that once held explosives (love how it says ‘dangerous’ all over it) inside a bigger one from 1949 that once held wine then later our eldest son’s prized possessions.
Thanks for peeking! I love hearing from you. Hope you’ll follow so I can follow you back.
Peace to you right where you are.
