- There's not much natural light, so it's hard to get a good shot.
- The paint job is not perfect, because the wood underneath is not perfect.
- I haven't finished re-upholstering the chair I use as my desk chair (the hoosier is now my desk).
Let's review the hoosier before (and during renovations if you're interested)
And now after!!!
**Swoon!** Is it ok to swoon over your own furniture re-makes? Either way, I'm swooning, though maybe now in secret.
The lovely wallpaper is hand printed from the Curiosity Shop. The glass pulls are from Home Depot, though now I've been to Brimfield, I may just replace them with authentic vintage glass ones next time I'm at the fair.
Perhaps the least immediately dramatic apparent change is the gray spray paint enamel on the countertop. It was previously a pale blue, but stained by years and years of use. The gray masks that wear and tear, and will dirty up less quickly than a white.
The shells on top are from my various beach jaunts about the world - everywhere from Cape Cod to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Puerto Rico. I. Love. Shells.
The question that remains: Do I keep the stuff hanging above it?
The seat in front of it (yet to be re-upholstered, thus not shown in this photo) will have some red accents in the fabric, and the rest of the room has some pops of red color...
Let me know your thoughts - both on the redo and on the hanging 'stuff'!
