We get asked quite a bit about the history behind our furniture & decorative items. Not because they are super fabulous but most likely because people know that I scour yard sales & thrift stores for 50% of the goods filling our home. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? Mainly—let’s be honest with ourselves—because I just selfishly want to revisit how I met all of my old friends.
Today we are kicking off a new blog feature “History Lesson” with a nook from our master bedroom…
1. Black frames with white mats: Eric actually bought these simple frames when he was a bachelor in our college days. And the “prints”? Well, these fancy prints were printed off of our not so fancy printer.
2. Arm chair: Oh! One of my favorite rehabs of all time!. This member of the Rehabilitation Station claims her title as my first ever attempt at reupholstery. For her terrible chartreuse before shots and full story, click here.
3. Black dresser: Another old friend from the Rehabilitation Station! Once our TV stand, now a lovely dresser for our bedroom. Click here for his life story since becoming Wilkerson
4. Window: The simplest rehab find ever!—and one of the least expensive at just 5 bucks. Check out her home coming here.
5. Glass lanterns: A pretty little birthday surprise from my pretty little (but older) sister. Thanks, Jess!
6. Scalloped mirror: A welcome home gift from our new house! Really, the old owners must have wanted to dump it since they left it behind, but we love it!
Now wasn’t that fun? I know I enjoyed it.
