This past weekend I did something I haven’t done in MONTHS. I went antiquing!! And I gotta say, it felt so good. I took the little miss with me and we had the best time browsing through one of my favorite antique shops. I was on the hunt for a new cabinet or bookcase for our front room and Lady Luck was on my side because I actually found one. And I LOOOOOVE it. Seriously, I haven’t been this excited about a new antique find in a long time and I’m pumped to share it with you guys. It’s the perfect size and it just has so much character.
Isn’t she cute!? I was literally giddy with excitement when we first brought her in this room. I just love it! It has a very charming, dollhouse look to it and I feel like it suits this room really well. I had so much fun styling it with old books and a few vintage pieces like that old clock. I’m smitten!
I can’t seem to find anything online about this particular cabinet, but I think it’s from the 1930s. Maybe even the 1940s. I love the arched top and all the details. It’s actually one piece, not two, and it’s pretty much in perfect condition. Plus it was already painted white when I bought it. I think it was meant to be!
I also freshened this room up with new accent chairs!! Well, actually I had one of these down in the basement, so I brought it up and then ordered one more so I’d have two in here. I got it when it was on a really good sale and it came right before Christmas. This room is so much more cozy now and lately I’ve been sitting in here every morning with my coffee.
I gotta say, lately I’ve found a new appreciation for our home–one that I honestly haven’t felt in a while. And to be real with you, I didn’t feel it for a good chunk of 2019. I just didn’t feel inspired by our home or super motivated to take on a lot of new projects. I was burnt out with projects and you guys might have picked up on that. I had a lot of fun sharing other things, but I did miss having that passion for our home. However, over the last few weeks I’ve started appreciating it again and I’m SO excited to take on new projects this year, try new things, freshen up the decor, and just share all of that with you guys. Getting this antique cabinet and switching up this front room was really the start of that and it’s a good feeling. Now I’m buzzing to get some projects done. First up is finally finishing our master bathroom makeover, which I started last MAY. That’s coming sooooon!
Thanks so much for dropping by today. I’m always grateful when you spend part of your day here with me. xo
