I've been shopping and finding some goodies for my home. But new finds always create change ups.
The table against the brick wall in my screened porch looked like this for almost a year. That's a record in our house. I think it made it because everything was covered during the winter.
|Covered bottles, faux coral, Santos, cement pedestal, metal ferns, giraffe table cover (really a bedspread), and a framed tin ceiling section as a back drop.|
Here's a close up of the bottles. The big green bottle didn't have a cover like the others and decided to borrow some of my bling.
Now I'm not saying I'm going to keep all this new stuff on the porch, but I wanted to share my finds.
The piece I'm most excited about is the chinoiserie planter with the geometric pattern. I think I may re-purpose it as a magazine holder. I also found two huge pieces of coral. Behind the coral are industrial looking metal trays that I plan to use as jewelry and desk organizers. They're from a candy store in New Jersey and I bought ten of them. I also purchased a blue blown glass covered bottle to add to my growing collection, a piece of driftwood, some leather books, and a plaster architectural fragment that makes a perfect bookend. That was an exciting shopping trip.!
On another outing I found this cute elephant side table. He's on the screened porch too along side my chair. It's just a perfect place to rest my morning cup of coffee.
The next purchase is going in the family room in front of my Mid-Century Modern buffet/tv stand.
This brass faux bamboo bench will be extra seating or a place to prop feet.
The curved hammered metal top is fabulous.
And of course my latest bling.

I love the hunt but I love the find better.
