The Gilded Lady

A couple of months ago I saw a great blog at Hospitality Designs (metallic paint project ) using Martha Stewart Golden Pearl paint.  I immediately knew I had to use this on something.  I found a waterfall highboy dresser and vanity that were in pretty bad shape that I thought might work, so off to Home Depot I went for my paint.  On the way home I stopped at a yard sale and found this little skirted vanity table from the 1940's or 1950's.  Doesn't she have beautiful legs?  I knew she would be my golden pearl project.

Rattan Chairs Two Ways

      We have a little pub near us that reminds me of Cheers.  I worked there for a few years in my early 20's, and as the song goes, everyone really does know your name.  I don't go there much now, but every summer they have a big yard sale I can't miss.  Last year I picked up four of these rattan and wicker chairs for $15 (total!).
