But...anyhoo, on to happier topics! Awhile back, I picked up this little side table for $14.00 at a thrift store. I liked its sort of harp style base and the kind of chunkiness it had. However, it was a combo of two pieces and although sturdy, it was a bit on the shabby, but not chic!, side.
This room tends to run a bit dark, but it is a den, and I was going for a library look. I love it. It is also mainly used by Mr. Bluebird and he requested a manly man room. The walls do not photograph accurately, but they are painted in Grand Distinction Boston Tea Party. The panels are from Pier One last year and the chair...oh the chair! I searched high, low, and every where in between and finally stumbled upon this one at Steinhafels. It was made by the Best Chair Company. The print is a little out of my comfort zone, but I am thrilled with it.
(Sorry about the cords - this is the first picture I took and I was a little over-eager!) Above the tablescape, is a vintage print of four sweet little kittens.....can you say too adorable? I received this picture from my sister many, many years ago and I have never tired of it.
So there you have it folks....another cheapo re-do! Gotta love gel stain - it's any easy rescue to damaged wood that you don't want to completely refinish. For $14.00 dollars and a few dollars in gel stain, I am enjoying this little table. I am sure it will make the rounds in many of the rooms in our house!
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you happiness,
