The Perfect Bamboo Table

As promised, I'm sharing one of my finds from Saturday's antique shopping trip.  This little cutie was spotted about a month ago at Chipley Market.  Your guess is as good as mine as to why I didn't pick it up then.  Maybe it was because the Christmas tree was up. At any rate, as luck would have it the table was still there...in the half priced room!

This spot in the living room seemed the most likely place for it and I really like it there.

The fun part began with styling the top of the table as well as the shelf underneath.  The piece of Majolica just seemed to fit perfect on those books.  The leather bound books were a find at Scott's earlier this month.

The first piece I put on the top was the red transfer ware dish.  It compliments the winged back chair.  Bestie N suggested something tall and dark.  We considered a bronze statue but there is none to be had in all of Auburn.  Next option seemed to be a barley twist candlestick.  It just makes the table I think, it is perfect!  The little stack of books with the bronze dog finish out the color palette of warm colors.

This room is probably the most evolved room in the entire house.  Take a peek here to see the before.

A Chair and a Tray Table

Our master bedroom doesn't get much, if any show time on the blog.  Why you might ask?  It is such a disappointment from the previous master suites we've had!  This is a bedroom, not a suite.  At the beginning of the year I decided it was time to fall in love with what I had...to work with.
