This little rocking love seat is on it's fifth upholstering, and it needs it again. My dh and I "smooched" on this love seat when we were dating!
I had to clear some of my "stuff" off of the top of this table, because I know there are a lot of rooster lovers out there, and I thought you might enjoy seeing this. I bought this at a store that was going out of business for $5.00. You get the best deals when somebody is ready to close up their store and take whatever they can get for something.
Of course, this is supposed to be table topper for a skirted round table. Since I didn't have a round, skirted table, I just put it on top of a painted square table temporarily (four years ago).
I bought these framed bird prints at an estate sale for $12.00 (no not each.. $12 total). All I had to do was stain the light wood frames.
I just had to show this lamp for Lynne.
I was in an antique store one day when I came across this little washstand I've used as a vanity. It was in the very back of the store (you know, where they put things they are ashamed to put up front), because someone had set a hot pot on the top and burned it, and the back of the piece was gone. Of course, that was perfect for me, since I was going to cut a hole in the top for a sink and the plumbing would need to be connected in the back.
We had bought some hand made tiles in Mexico 30 years ago. In our last house, we used them on a small counter top, and in my dh's office, we've used them as a back splash in the kitchen. We had just enough left over to put on the back of the vanity. I found the sink, which matches the tiles, at an antique store when we were remodeling this house five years ago! The grandchildren's frog mirror was given to me by a friend.
When our son was a teenager, he mowed yards (our's included). One day when my sister-in-law and her husband were visiting, he came in the house and said "mom, there's way too much junk in the backyard--all we need is some pink flamingos". My sister-in-law and her husband picked up on that, and I started getting flamingos for gifts. They have all landed in this powder room.
There is even one swinging from the chandelier!
Oops! I have a lightbulb out!
I probably should not tell this, but I have already told you I come from a long line of pack rats. When I was cleaning out my mother's house, I found a dress that I had worn to a high school dance!! We're talking a lot of years ago. I made the bottom of it into a "temporary" cafe curtain for this powder room. In front of the curtain is a picture of me in the dress.
Thanks so much for coming to visit my sun room. laurie
