Last Christmas, my sister Lisa gave me a Pottery Barn gift certificate.
After much pondering, I finally chose this cool rug:
Who doesn’t love navy blue ticking stripes?
As a reminder of days gone by, let’s look back at my old, much loved kilim rug:
I loved it because it had all the “Kay colors” of blue, red + buttery tan.
I bought it way, way back in 2007, so I was ready for a change.
Meanwhile, this cute little rolling table is also new:
I bought it for my biz, RedBird Vintage Home,
to resell at one of my upcoming spring markets.
Who knew? It would look so great in our living room!
Check out the way the white bead board top echoes the white stripes.
So. I may or may not sell it. We’ll see!
I love how you can tell that it has been made from parts of other furniture.
The white top + apron have the best chippy patina,
while the graceful, natural wood legs surely came from something fancier.
And the wheels! I’ll buy anything with wheels!
In fact, our living room has not 1 but 2 typewriter tables,
which, as you know, have wheels.
Sorry about the naughty photo, but it’s been so dark + dreary here.
Anyway, I bought a sample 12″ square marble tile for the top,
yet more white in the room.
Now, then. This concludes the tour of all wheeled items in our living room,
but before I go, may I show you some other newcomers to our living room?
My dad won those, + when we were visiting last month, he said I could have them!
I’m not sure how sentimental he is about his “major awards”,
but I promised him I wouldn’t sell them.
How could I?
But stay tuned for whether or not I sell my little table!
I have a market this coming Saturday.
