So here are my recent purchases. My wish list will have to follow later.
I'm most excited about this...a TOBACCO BASKET that I bought for $40 at an antiques store in Abingdon, VA.
I also ordered 2 of these sconces from Restoration Hardware.
I also wanted to get these matching knobs and pulls, but I couldn't justify the price.
I finally decided on a lantern for the kitchen as well. Thomasville Crestwood 3-light lantern in Antique Bronze. We thought the 4-light would be too large. I was able to order it from Home Depot, so if it arrives and isn't perfect, I can always return it.
On our trip to Tennessee, I found 10 yards of Sunbrella fabric to recover 2 chairs for our living room.
My recent Craigslist purchases include 2 awesome finds:
An extra large, solid wood, entertainment center armoire. The brand is Heckman, but it looks a lot like this Pottery Barn one. It will hold the living room television.
We've picked out a king size bed for our master from a local furniture store. Great price, and a great look alike to several popular stores. A consolation prize since I couldn't get John on board with an upholstered headboard (a dust trap).
John's study has made lots of progress. Mostly from Ikea. It would be so tedious to show you piece by piece. You'll just have to see it in place.
But Caroline's chandelier from Ikea will be worth a little peek, to finish this out. She's SUPER excited about a little bling in her room.
I'll keep shopping, organizing and packing. Did I say 10 more days?!?
