Alright, so blame it on Kohls shipping, the room reveal can not take place yet. I really want to do it but I think that window treatments are sort of important and they aren’t here. Boo. So, I thought I’d share with you what I found today while browsing the local St. Vincents or Vinnie’s as we refer to it.
I found this wild lamp and scooped it up.
Good thing I grabbed it when I did because another lady was eyeing it up as well and I didn’t want to start a fight in the lighting section. I even have a drum shade I purchased at Target on clearance for $5 a few months ago. Maybe some spray paint and fabric on the shade and I can’t wait to put this lamp together.
I was on the search for some maps and found this book which didn’t have anything cool inside until I flipped to the back cover and discovered a folded up map from 1979, it’s big and kind of vinyl like and has maps on both sides!
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the map and then I remembered this old window door frame in my basement that my neighbor was going to throw away! Here’s the map in the frame, I might put this over the couch. And yes, that’s my big toe in the picture, oops!
I only had my cell phone camera but I did find some cool dressers that would be so fun to paint and use in my house. I didn’t budget the extra $80 to $100 that they would have cost me so I didn’t buy one. I loved this one, some new knobs, a new paint job and she would be on classy lady!
This one also had great lines and legs too!
And this one could be fun in a different color and maybe even with her original knobs.
So while waiting for the curtains to not arrive, I put together some wall art for the bub’s room. I did a shout out on facebook yesterday looking for old maps and someone posted that they had some flight maps I could have. That sounded really fun and different so I jumped on that right away. This morning I picked up a lovely packet of flight maps and this is what I created this afternoon.
I purchased three display case frames made of black walnut last fall at a garage sale for $1 each, I had a project in mind for them but never got around to it. So, I thought they would be fun to hang on the wall with maps in them and it would be cheap and original wall art for the bub’s room. Here they are, now I just need to hang them up!
So, I am not going to promise a room reveal because I’m waiting for those stinking window treatments! Have a great weekend everyone, we are back to blowing and cold weather so the spray painting season was a short one! Hopefully we will warm up again soon, so if you have sun and warmth, enjoy some for me! Happy Weekend!
