|This is my first time using Skitch. Have you tried it?|
Anyway, just wanted to share the sofa love. And speaking of sharing the love, Ashley from Meet Me in Philadelphia was kind enough to nominate me for a Stylish Blogger Award. Thanks so much, Ashley! I just ran across Ashley's blog recently, and I am loving her style . . . I think we are kindred spirits. You must visit her blog if you have not. Check out the adorable chair and curtains in her blog header . . . you just know it's going to be good.
Since I was fortunate enough to receive this award earlier in the week, I won't bore you with 7 more things about me. I'll just say thanks again, Ashley for thinking of me!
And as this is turning out to be a rather random post, I'll just share a couple of things I found while poking around on Friday once my daughter finally went back to school after almost a week off for the snow/ice.
Of course, I hit the Habitat store and found this . . .
Asian-style coffee table. This would be great painted/lacquered any color - I would do white or black. I think it was about $60.
Of course, there were two matching side tables too for $45 each.
It reminded me of a coffee table makeover I just saw on The Huntress Lives. Here's her coffee table that got a makeover. The before:
And I found these . . .
a pair of temple jar lamps. While they've been hanging around the Habitat shop for a while (I can only imagine it's because of their less than flattering rust-brown color), they're a great shape and size. Plus, there are two of them . . . I love pairs of things. They've been marked down to about $12 each. Paint them the color of your choice and with the right shades, they'd be perfect on a console table or sideboard.
Hope everyone is enjoying a happy weekend!
