I’ve picked up a few new things for my etsy shop. Some white ironstone pieces.
I just need to get them photographed and then I will list them.
But yesterday I didn’t find much on my thrift store hunt. But then as I was about to leave I spied a mirror stashed behind some old lawn furniture. And well, it just had to come home with me. I got a military discount so it was an extra good deal.
It’s heavy as all get out. It’s an old dresser mirror.
It has some lovely carved details and a gorgeous shape.
The mirror is beveled with some etching along the top.
There is some aging a bit along the edge but the center is pretty clear.
I don’t know what I’ll do with it. Keep it or sell it. Paint it or leave it as it. The wood is in great shape.
I might take the wood braces off the back and stick it on the mantel. But is it too big?
It’s a lot bigger then the ones up there now. I should have measured and marked the wall so you could see just how big it really is. I guess the only way to see is to try it. But I will need help getting it up there!
I wish they had the dresser that went with it.
Oh and while I’m in the family room, let me show you my new sea grass rug!
It’s a big change for me from my last rug.
(he looks annoyed with me)
I did love this rug. It was fun with the big floral print and the colors were great. I was just ready for a change. I love the way the sea grass just calmed the room. I got it from Overstock. They ship really fast and they occasionally have their rugs on sale. It is a big 9x12 so I waited for the sale. I really love the herringbone pattern.
We are searching for a new chair to replace that old slip covered one that I didn’t even bother fluffing up before taking these shots. Nor did I pick up all the dog toys or papers lying around.
And why yes, those are my kitchen cabinet doors on my dining room table. They are starting to go back on with new hinges and knobs. Do you think it’s easier to drill the holes for the new knobs after I rehang them?
