2nd chair

12.12.2011

No, not talking about the fact that I was second chair in our high school saxophone section.  But those were some pretty hilarious memories. More like I finished re-upholstering the other chair for my dining room the other day.  The second chair went together much faster that the first, guess a little practice never hurt anyone.

Quite a few people had questions on my buffet from the other chair post.  It's the dumont buffet from west elm. I got lucky and snagged it up when it was on sale and I had my coupons in hand.  The perfect mix of modern and Scandinavian style, I agree.


The prints on the floating shelf are: pink triangle print by twoems and the midwest by brainstorm


Part of my cathrineholm collection (more on that later), and a lovely little yellow dansk enamel pitcher.


I'm pretty much done decorating my living room/dining room area.  I had picked up a really cool glass door cabinet at an estate sale a couple months ago, just need to figure out if I'll be painting it.  Anyway, hope to give you the full tour after Christmas.
