I mentioned last week that I'd found something for my entryway.
Here it is.
Last week, just after realizing the chest we'd just revamped was going to stay at the kitchen table, I went out for my usual yard sale-ing adventures. I stopped at a house and looked around. She had a ton of antiques, but a man was there buying every one of them before I could even ask. I went into her shed, and saw the most adorable telephone table. It needed a new seat and new upholstery. But other than that it was perfect to me! When I asked her the price, I tried not to let my jaw hit the ground. $7. Thats right, she told me this could be mine for the outrageous price of SEVEN DOLLARS! I didn't even try to negotiate.
The seat was falling in and the fabric was stained and nasty. So, hubby pulled off the old seat and cut me a new one out of plywood. Then, I reupholstered it in a grey damask fabric that was on sale at JoAnn's. I love the way it turned out!
I love the basket for the kids' shoes, but I may need a bigger one.
What do you think? I've been dying to use that color blue somewhere in my house and I think I finally found the perfect spot!
Linking up to some of these wonderful parties!
