Cots Are Hot

Just like that those folding camp cots are moving from the cabin into our homes.

They can be used as a bench in a loft.

This one makes a perfect coffee table.

How about a nap?

Extra seating.

Of course I found one when shopping The Forty Mile Yard Crawl in Virginia.

My Exciting Find

They're so compact.

All Folded Up

Nothing softens a camp cot like faux fur throws.

Black, White, and Metallics

It's time for the next sale at the CoOp.  Yea.
I just finished with my space.  If I had to describe it this month I'd say it's mostly black and white with metallics as accents.  Mixed metals are good.  You'll see gold and brass combined with silver and mercury for sparkle.  There may be some turquoise sprinkled around too.





























I can hardly wait for tomorrow.

Nail Head Trim Isn't Just for Upholstered Furniture

Yes, I'll admit again that I'm obsessed with nail head trim.  The bigger the nail head the more I like it.
I think that my favorite nail head transformation was on this black and white settee.

I've written before about nail head trim on upholstered pieces and sources for it here,
but nail head is just as lovely on walls, doors, and furniture.

To add some interest to my 1970's knotty pine kitchen, I painted the cabinets, created a backsplash with vinyl-coated snakeskin fabric AND trimmed it all out with black nail head.
