I promised I'd share my Junk Jamboree finds from two weekends ago. Here are the furniture pieces that came home with me, two school chairs a little red and blue bookcase.
I'd been looking for some metal and wood laminate school chairs for some time. I even found some at Kudzu in Decatur, Georgia this summer while shopping with my sister. But at $79 a pop, I passed. These were $16. Yeay!
They are already in use in the twins' room, at their built-in desk, which I wrote about in a previous post:
|I still need to paint and trim the end of the desk.|
The boys have been asking for a nightstand to replace this "baby-ish" (their word) piece, made to look like Side Table Drawer from the preschool TV show Blue's Clues:
I think the little shelf needs a small-sized vintage globe, a piggy bank, an alarm clock, and a stack of story books when it takes its place between the two beds:
I have a few other things to share from Junk Jamboree. Stay tuned on those!
I'm also back from my trip to Arkansas. I'll update with a post when I've had time to sort through photos and reflect on the journey. Oh, and sleep off some major road wearies. As much as I love road trips, I don't much love driving. Crazy, isn't it?
