Here’s another part of our dining room redesign (that I shared a couple months ago). This time, I thought I’d show you how much a pint of paint and some new hardware can do to completely transform a piece of furniture (and even help you designate a new use for it).
The dresser below was a piece of midcentury furniture I bought at a garage sale in college for $40. I haven’t liked it for a long time, but our apartment has so little closet space/built in storage (and I have too much stuff) to have been able to do without it.
So, for a $10 custom pint of paint and $12 for Anthropologie hardware on super-clearance: antler handles $1.98/ea. and knobs $.98/ea. we have a modern rustic dry bar with great storage for linens and bar supplies.
We spent the last days of 2012 at a cabin in the Driftless, the region of south-western Wisconsin, eastern Minnesota, and north-eastern Iowa that borders the Mississippi River and was circumvented by the wondrous glaciers that carved the rest of the Great Plains.
We were so glad to find Hills approaching mountains in Wisconsin and happy to try out our new snowshoes! Below are some images from our time at the Red Clover Cabin on a farmstead in Soldier’s Grove, WI owned by Annie Coleman.
I had to rush out the door from work yesterday without a chance to post about my weekend plans. Im currently relaxing by the fire and Christmas tree with a group of talented, creative women. I am looking forward to sharing the fruits of our creativity with you soon
TOAST is a British-based company that purveys clothing and goods for the home that have a distinctively rustic-bohemian spirit. Their lookbooks are filled with landscapes, details, buildings, and textures that engulf the senses and evoke a strong desire to adopt the environment and lifestyle of its pages. It makes you actually yearn for cabin fever.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their Autumn and Winter catalogues. Sadly, they do not ship to the US, but you can download the lookbooks and check out their Christmas book here. All I can say is baggy sweaters and pajamas never looked so good!
