I've been finding tons of stuff at GW lately. Mostly small things that I'll upcycle and sell. Nothing major. Except for what I found last week.
These babies were $6 each!!
I practically threw them in the cart as soon as I saw the price. Then I promptly went back over to the sweater rack and put the $20 worth of sweaters I'd planned on buying, back. I just don't get GW sometimes. I mean, they're charging over $5 for a sweater, yet I can get these for a buck more each. Hey, I'm not complaining though! I love these tables! Check out those legs! Oh my..
But like they say, every silver lining has a cloud. That's what they say right? No? Well, you know what I mean. I have a problem. It's actually a good problem to have, I guess. See, I want these table to live with ME. I don't want to fix them up and then sell them off. The problem with me keeping them is that they'd have to be painted either black or cream. I may get away with red, but I really just want to be adventurous with these. I'm really looking at these photos for inspiration:
I love, love , love that polka-dot fabric. I do have a wingback-ish chair that I found on the side of the road that I could reupholster in that fabric or a combo of that and the other one. If I did that, it would look so awesome with those tables painted aqua with maybe a little red peeking through.
Like I said before, though, none of that fits with my living room. I'm pretty sure I could change some of the accessories and take the red chair out of my studio and make the whole thing work since we do have neutral walls. I feel like I love the vision of the chair and tables in my head so much that I would MAKE it work. Ya know?
What do you think?
