Like many of my lovely visitors, I love reusing things that nobody wants anymore.
this was a candle, but the crock makes a nice vase.
but it is also shows my love for French country and Paris.
In the bookshelves there are a few portraits of the Hatters, and even a sculpture.Except for the cart, the furniture that you see was second hand and acquired as is, and someone made the clock. Since acquiring these chairs a few months ago, I think that we have used these chairs more than the original owners; the upholstery was unworn on them.
The china cabinet is an early birthday and anniversary gift (September) for this room, the room my spouse painted as a present a couple of months ago.
The seller of the china cabinet had already painted it the perfect shade of AS Paris Grey. Serendipitous. Though the French country design of the cabinet changed a little bit over the years, its dimensions are almost exactly the same as a new one manufactured by the same company; one would gasp at the price of a new one; thankfully, this piece is only ten percent of the cost of a new one.
the table IS smaller. We switched the larger glass table to a smaller table. The Hatters' glues, liquids, paints, yarns, ribbons, and scissors were not always compatible with the books... :) (But, we still have the colored pencils, markers, and garlands in the room for fun. :)
As you can see from the prints on the wall and the garland, I love Paris, because
my spouse and I became engaged there.
Our dream is to make the shed in the backyard a studio,
but for now our art supplies have returned to the large, glass-topped desk.
Most of the year, we keep art supplies in the potting shed,
but it is already summer temperatures.
