I was out running errands today, and well, I couldn’t resist a little visit to Interiors and Antiques in Vestavia, AL. As you saw from this post, I’m still on the hunt for a headboard. But I also saw a lot of other things I was pining over, and then other things I just snapped pictures of to get some ideas. I don’t know what it is about white/rustic furniture, but I just LOVE it. We don’t even have room in our house for any of the things I saw today, but I contemplated selling what we currently have just to make room. My name is Amy, and I have a problem. Hey, at least I can admit it, right? 😉
I pretty much wanted everything in this whole booth. All the white/dusky gray furniture just felt so light and airy, and it would totally brighten-up our house.
I rounded the corner and saw this mantle headboard, with soft burlap upholstered batting. It was beautiful…. but in the $500-ish range :/ And then there was a wooden and iron gate (supposedly from India) that I thought might could work as a headboard…buuut, it was also $500. What is the deal?!
Then I started just looking around getting crafty ideas from things I liked. Like this shutter made into a coat rack. And these pictures printed on book pages. And these birds nests in shadow boxes….totally DIY-able.
Then I came across this china cabinet. And guess what. It’s the exact same china cabinet in my Nana’s dining room set, except this one’s been painted gray! And this is when I really started thinking I could just sell my black Ikea buffet and do this instead. I was smitten.
