Southern Hospitality

Check out the neat things Rhoda and Layla found at the Nashville Flea Market. So cool!

In Process

Despite it bring 100 degrees outside, and a hurricane heading straight for us, I went junking today with my friend Kelly. It was kind of on a whim, but sometimes those are the best kinds. After Kelly showing me a few new junking locations in town, I found another cool chair.... You might not know this yet, but my Mom and husband sure do: My house is quickly becoming chair hell. But I just cant help it. Acknowledging that I have a problem is the first step, right?More importantly than my chair find today, Kelly found the perfect pub style table for her dining room! A few nicks here and there, and a little repair to the top and she'll be good to go! I cant wait to see what she does with it!

I found this piece for $60 at a huge furniture thrift store. I havent done a thing to it. It has a few superficial dings here and there, but overall its in good shape. Its in our bedroom. I think I may sand down some of the stain and then stain it to match the tops of our new nightstands!

Ok, so this one is actually done. Ill work on getting you a picture. But, theres a matching one, that is reupholstered, but needs the cording on the bottom edge finished up, so technically its still in progress. :) (I think I got both chairs for $17 at Goodwill)

This is one of my very favorite pieces I found. I purchased this from my favorite junking spot, New To You. The salesman actually tried talking me out of buying it because its got some wear and tear. It was designed by Norman Bel Geddes for Simmons furniture back in like the 30s. I just love everything about it-- and it was already teal! It needs nothing more than to find the perfect spot in my house for it. It makes me smile just to look at it.

This is my lucky find today with Kelly. $8 at a local thrift shop. Some new fabric, and it was be cute at my office desk!

I bought this off of lejeuneyardsales.com (a craigslist type site) for like $14 or something ridiculous. It has currently been painted white, and the knobs replaced with brushed steel round ones. (The knobs in the pic are lion heads.. lol)

This was $10 at a fabulous JUNK store in Burgaw. This place was piled high with junk. And I loved every minute of it. This has a skirt on it because of the leg needs replacing... As soon as I con Blake into fixing it, Ill probably just make a slip cover for it. Its eventually for Copper. (Yes, I buy furniture for my dogs) :D

I love this piece! I just bought it for $24 at Goodwill. This one I havent even started on. I want to use it in the dining room or foyer as a buffet. My thought process so far has been white, with the moldings painted a teal or blue. Those moldings stick out almost 2-3inches, they are pretty prominent. Any suggestions??

Eventually I will post about my beloved desk, that started it all.......
