For the Love of the Find!

For the Love of the Find!
Look at these Amazing Vintage Finds. While visiting all of those wonderful blogs for the (Where Bloggers Create II) over at My Desert Cottage hosted by Karen Valentine, I saw in one of the Creative Spaces a large desk- but it wasn't a desk it was a smaller kitchen table, that was used as a desk. So every since, I have been on this mission to find a table or desk or really anything bigger that is unique that I can use as a Sewing Table/Desk and will look cute in my Living room.I have been using an old French style Desk (kind of small) everything always falls off while Im sewing.
  While out one day I came across this Charming Large Desk, it really is huge- How Beautiful is that piece, (very frenchy)with three drawers, cabriloe legs, engraved flowers, look at the detail on the top.
And then a good friend of mine Suzanne over at (S.W. Design.blogspot) pointed out the chair- How perfect is That- Like it was meant to go with it.
So I now will have a large desk to sew on, and a darling chair..
Then my buddy Wayne at The Shack brought this little gem in. Well, I know not a piece of furniture-and not exactly a norm for the vitnage finds. BUT, it rolls-has deep storage and so sturdy, used as a music instrument mover.
But with my mind always going, on trying something new- I can't wait to come up with something for it..
It is big enough for a small child??
An animal?
Rolls of Wrapping Paper?
Maybe Ill add a handle, to be used at luggage-
or Maybe a Rustic Table?

Off to Paint my new finds I didn't sleep at all, I was so excited to get up and start on these pieces !!!

  2. I hope you got up early enough to beat the heat. I tried to paint a bit outside this morning and nearly melted into a puddle, myself. Looking forward to seeing the "after". Have a great week--I'll try to pop in sometime this week--the boys have been bugging me to visit your new shop neighbor.
