I love to pop into my favourite antique shops whenever I have a chance.
A couple of weeks ago while between client meetings I found these little goodies:
I loved this wrought iron chair in antique brass - the back is gorgeous and the patina really gives it character. I was thinking to put a cushion on the seat and use it in my client's bathroom at the make-up vanity.
I found this Chinoiserie fabric at one of the many little fabric shops I like to visit. Sometimes there's nothing and sometimes I strike gold... or silver in this case.
I'm thinking this fabric will be framed and placed on a wall.
This Chinoiserie dragon fabric is stunning. Although I'm not generally a big fan of yellow, in this pattern it really works. Again, this may get framed for a client - or it may have to stay in my office!
Staying on the Chinoiserie theme (and it's crazy that I found all of these on the same day!),
these lamps were a steal at $32 for the PAIR!!
They'll get a little fresh touch up gold paint on the base and a black lamp shade and then they will be looking for a fabulous place shine.
Right now they're in my front hallway and I smile every time I walk by them...
am I getting attached again??
I can't resist animal prints (as you've seen in recent post) so when I finally found the right zebra print in the right fabric at the right price, I snagged the last 3 yards of it!
Then I found this adorable jungle-scene fabric with monkeys and birds and antelopes, oh my!
I put it together with a few fabrics I had left over from other projects,
and voila... an amazing fabric scheme for a child's room!
Anyone have a child's bedroom that needs a makeover?
Give me a call, I may let you have this fabric...maybe.
