This is my new baby, and therefore my new project. This antique china cabinet was going for super cheap on ebay and I snatched it right up for a Buy it Now price, since there were a bunch of inquiries about it. Below are the two pieces, and I am going to paint them both and put wallpaper on the back wall of the cabinet.
It's absolutely gorgeous, but does need work. It has it's original mid century paint and this gross green putty inside the cabinet. Yuck! Maybe it was used to hold down objects displayed inside? Who knows. It's been a pain to get off, I can tell you that much! These are a few photos from my inspiration folder that came to mind when I purchased it...
My original idea was to paint it a glossy pale gray with a yellow floral wallpaper inside, probably with a metallic gold in it. Then I realized it wasn't the most guy-friendly combo and I have to keep my man in mind! I think I've settled on black glossy paint and a black floral Designer's Guild wallpaper inside the cabinet.... something that we both will love! I'll be posting pictures soon when it's closer to done!
I was at Anthropologie today looking at some adorable mercury glass votive holders, and it got me thinking about how I've always loved loved LOVED mercury glass in general, especially lamps.
I love the floral shade on this one. I would buy some of that fabric if I could get my hands on it!
I love my new brass side table that I scored on ebay for a steal of a deal! It looks perfect in my home and what I love is how unique it is! It was such a surprise today that I accidentally stumbled upon two very similar tables on 1stdibs...for $5200! Well, guess I lucked out!
I just became introduced to Emily Henderson, the new HGTV Design Star winner and was so impressed by her style when I watched her TV special Secrets of a Stylist. She has amazing taste which is always such a treat since HGTV features so many different tastes and styles, not all of which are my faves. Here are a few photos from her portfolio and from Secrets of a Stylist.
