Vintage Shopping Trip

On the last day of my vacation from school, I wanted to take a quick trip to Downtown Dallas to one of my favorite vintage shops …White Elephant Antiques. They have absolutely everything from vintage modern to classic country. I was on the lookout for some mid-century modern items for the home…I found a great ottoman that I am going to recover with a fab velvet and a set of 4 upholstered  chairs for our card room in grey velvet….still debating on getting them on the account that I will eventually need to recover them.
Check out my other great finds!
I have been wanting this for a beautiful!

One of my obsessions...lamps! Love these chrome beauties!

Red Drama

I have a dresser that almost looks identical to the one below...I would love to be brave enough to paint it red, but alas going the white route. I might be brave enough to paint it a beautiful turquoise blue...It will be one of the last pieces for my master bedroom...Yeah!

My dresser before...

Dining Room Table Hunt

I am currently without a dining room table and have been hunting for one for months. I didn’t think it would take this long…Christmas was my original deadline. I am almost finished staining the Louis chairs that will go around it! They are a deep brown stain with yummy mango orange velvet!

My inspiration tables…

Here are some tables I love…which one do you like best?

My Deer!

I bought this deer several months ago from One Kings Lane…it has been looking for a place to live in my home. I am usually good about not buying anything for my home until I know exactly where I will put it, but he was an impulse buy…had to have him but not sure where to put him. I finally found the perfect spot in my kitchen looking over us!

I love that Stray Dog Designs are made of recycled materials and are handmade in Haiti & Mexico…makes it that much prettier! They also can paint their designs in an array of colors using low VOC paint…check them out!
Very Hollywood Regency...perfect sitting beside the fireplace!

How great are these a pair of them!

This one would look good upstairs in the card room!

Baughman Love!

Milo Baughman is one of my favorite 20th century modern furniture designers.
His designs are clean, modern, and still classic to this day! He designed for several furniture companies, but is most well-known for his partnership with Thayer Coggin from 1953 until 2003. I especially love his furniture pieces in burled wood and chrome…to die for!
 LOVE the chrome & burled wood!

Yummy lacquered orange!

My future dining room table...

Velvet beauties!

This would look so good in our game room!

Need these for the kitchen!


Love the Baughman swivel chairs...can't wait to reupholster mine!
