The little update in our bedroom has really started a little fire in me. I’m not sure what has taken me so long, but I am slowly but surely putting the plan that’s been rolling around my crazy little head in motion.
Well, for me it was this:
Noblesse in navy
At $29/ yard, I used it sparingly. But with a fabric/ pattern like this, a little goes a long way. So as I’m moving around my home, sprucing up as I go, that fabric is just about all the money I’ve spent. I’m trying to use things I already have, just in a different room/ different way. Furniture Roulette we’ll call it.
About once a week. I try to make time to hit my favorite Thriftstores. There are five in my neighborhood alone so it’s not that much trouble. And I’m an ‘In & Out’ girl which makes it a whole lot less time consuming. I was out prowling when I spotted this little Walnut doll:
The base was perfect but the top was a mess. That little detail on the corners was what really sucked me.
That and the $12.50 price tag.
It was sitting out front of the store with a bunch of small tables out there but I can promise you this one was best in show. I figured at the very least I could paint it. Then on the drive home when I’m usually mulling over colors, I decided to dig out my little orbital sander and just refinish that top.
But I didn’t have to.
Miss Mustard Seed’s hemp oil to the rescue again!
That’s it, I swear.
Pretty sweet 🙂
