Happy New Year!! Recently,I was able to go back to my favorite resale shop with Christmas money in hand, so exciting. I found the perfect cabinet for our powder room, which had no storage. It was even the right color, although, I was not against having to paint in order to find the right cabinet.
Then we found bedside tables, solid wood, marked down to 2 for $12! At first I thought I would paint them this spring, but now I like the dark wood. Besides none of our bedroom furniture is painted. I do not mind the mixed wood tones. These tables were just what we needed and had been looking for.
I also bought a replacement spoon rest. My free one from Good Will chipped beyond repair, unfortunately. This one is Fiesta Ware, made in America. It will last for a long time.
And lastly, we had been given a lamp, but it did not have a harp or shade. We finally found the right parts and put it on the desk in the office. I know the shade is kind of modern and my furniture is more traditional, but I liked how it looked, so that was that.
I really enjoy making a home via the resale shops! I hope to go again soon, when the weather improves. I am looking to add to my 1970's Correlle.
