So in last night’s blog post I kind of left you hanging…well not kind of. I totally left you hanging. I showed you all of the great stuff from the vintage sale I went to but I didn’t show you what I bought.
I got these cute little bears and the cross stitch piece they are sitting on. It’s red and black.
I also bought the cabinet they are sitting in…but which one is it? I showed you so many in last night’s post.
It’s…it’s this one…
I bought something for a completely different area…or at least I thought it would be for a different area.
This is an old pie display case. It was $85. I just loved it and really hoped it would work either on top of pump organ or on top of my roll top desk. I tried it both places and the pump organ won out.
It was really dusty and dirty so it took me about an hour to clean it. If you look on the right side you can see the wood is dry, dirty and needs attention. You can see on the left it looks so much better. You can really see it if you compare the left bottom corner to the right.
You’ll never believe me when I say I toned the wood by generously rubbing mayonnaise (yes people’s food mayonnaise) into the wood.
Here is a start to my decorating it up. I am so in love with this. Doesn’t it look like they were made to go together?
I have a couple of ideas more of what I want to do but it’s on hold until someone comes and can hold a few pictures in place for me to see if that’s how I actually want it to go. Sadly in doing this, it’s pulled apart a few other areas in the house that were previously decorated. HA!
…and to do what I think I want to do, other places are going to look even more bare. So…I’m debating on doing it now and having bare spaces or waiting until I have a few things for the soon-to-be bare spots. So many decisions.
In the meantime, this was the right decision. I’m so glad I was brave and just bought it.
