The old file cabinet from the Chevy plant. We love Chevies in this house. And someday, we'll strip this baby down to the wood, but for now it's got some shiny brass hardware and a coat or two of paint. All the hardware was spray painted when we got it. And the cabinet was an uninspiring dingy yellow color. This old wooden file cabinet is made well and can be repaired if needed and refinished too, and last for fifty more years at least!
This is the little corner from which I visit with you! On an old tiger oak oak library table my computer, printer and tower sit...the modern desk chair will not fit under the table. I don't know exactly what to do there, I don't like how it looks, but a tiny little wooden chair is not comfortable at all! I saw a wooden rolling desk chair modeled after older desk chairs like our teachers used to have at Pottery Barn this afternoon but it was mighty pricey, even at the outlet. I may try to find something similar at an antique store. Or I might try making a slipcover for the big newer office chair, I have fabric leftover.
On the buffet sits my new old ironstone soup tureen that my mom gave me for Christmas. It's been hers since the 1960's and now it's mine. That's the best kind of present!
I hope you like seeing my work that we've been doing the last few weeks! I so enjoy seeing all of your projects...it's like my childhood dream come true...being able to actually look inside other homes!
Oh, and speaking of looking at other homes, wishing you could peek inside...take a gander at this page and see if there's any homes here you think you'd like to peer into the windows!
