I was supposed to have a fancy, new blog for you according to my extensive list of resolutions, but, um, I don't. I'm just lazy and kind of busy. (Mostly just lazy.) So, here we are - new year, old blog. Oh, well. So it goes, right? I am going to do it though. Probably. I want to, if that counts for anything. But, for now, I've been busy thrifting and playing and I just have not had time to get on that particular resolution (the others are going well, by the way).
The first thing I want to show you is the UH.DOR.ABLE table I found that now lives in FinnigantheCurious' room. I bought it for a client, but it was too small. (Oh darn.) It's sooooo precious and it was already painted that charming blue color. Can you believe it?! I would show it to you in the boy's room, but you know what little boys' rooms look like, don't you? Uh-huh. Maybe I'll talk him into letting me straighten it up and then I can show you how cute it is.
That BLUE! Oh, lucky me.
My dear friend, Stacy, gifted me some cuteashell wooden spools. I've seen those bigass ones and thought they could be cool somethings, but, oh, these tiny ones! weeeee. I was going to turn this one into a hose reel per some DIY book that she gave me, but that project seemed like work. Blech. I like fun projects, not work projects. (This is why my kitchen cabinets are still leaning against the garage wall, still painted white, not olive green. Sigh.) Um, where was I? Oh, spool. Well, here's the little cutie spooly...
Zinger's Hardware sells oilcloth for $1.99 per foot. That is crazy-ass cheap, y'all. Another (unnamed) trendy Austin store sells it for $10.99 a yard (boo). And, ooo, they have it on these big roller things on the wall and you get to choose your pattern then they roooooollll it out and cut it. Kinda fun if you're in to that kind of thing.
And, for a total non sequitur...
I want this. Oh, lordy, I really, really want this. Spotted over in Bouldin Creek. I was thinking of waiting until spring, but then I realized I could probably make one and put some of that swanky winter grass in it. I may, in fact, go overboard with this particular trend. I've seen it before and I'm not sure why it didn't appeal to me before. Perhaps the multi-gazillion dollar PERFECT house that these live at had something to do with it. Who knows? Anyway, I'm gonna do it. So there.
