In our house there are a few pieces that are my favorites, pieces I looked long and hard for, created myself or just got a great deal on and feel so lucky to have! I finally got around to photographing them recently and here they are.
Kane County Flea Market! This window (with 2 panes missing) hangs over our piano. I painted the patterns on the glass to give it a little something extra, but the frame was already distressed white. I think it brings the whole room together.
World Market. Nothing super special, but I love having them in our entry way.
Found this lampshade at the Crate & Barrel outlet on 59. I couldn't believe my luck, I'd been admiring it on CB2 forever and then there it was! Josh was kind enough to replace the super ugly chandelier over the dining room table with this lovely textured shade! (Not the best picture, I've got to work on how to photograph lights...)
here), but I also love the fabric I found (at JoAnn's) for those pillows which my mom then sewed.
Nona Jo's (in Naperville), a really great little shop if you're local. It actually had 4 panels, but I removed one and luckily it fit perfectly! It's so ornate and such a simple off-white color I couldn't resist, even though it had a rather hefty price tag. That's all so far, I will post more after this summer's flea market trips and a few of my refurbishing projects are done.
