I love all of the old retro telephone stands that I see everywhere. I, however, can never find one. HELLO GOODWILL and their recently returned 1/2 price Friday!!!!
I got this for $5.04 and am so excited!!!! I was going to paint it yellow, but it was a little boring. So, I decided to find fabric and then decide on a colour. I went to fabricland (alone) and was able to browse without anybody whining (woo hoo). I found some material, but it was in another woman's arms!!! I sooooo wanted to grab it and run, but I figured I had to be polite and ask her whether she was planning to buy all of it. She graciously let me buy my 1/2 metre and give it back to her. I am in love, sigh.
Isn't it pretty? I thought it would go with the yellow, but it gets washed out by the light colour.
What to do, what to do??
I know, go FUSHIA!!!
It was a little bright for the kitchen, so I used my trusty maple walnut stain and toned it down. I reattached the seat, and look what I got!!!
Diego gets in every single picture I take. Crazy dog.
I put the bench under my window and added the phone and a pencil holder. I love it!
Now, the kitchen matches this pink pumpkin
Anybody else bringing some colour into an otherwise dull room?
