Brass side table missing its glass. Easy fix. Love that bamboo detail on the brass legs. Needs a good shining. Have you tried Barkeeper's Friend on brass? Gets all the tarnish off. Then shine it up with a good brass polish.
Found the original tag under the chair. Drexel Heritage, 1978. One of the front legs is slightly caddywampus (southern slang for crooked), but the husband can take care of that.. What do you think - that's gotta be the original upholstery (not in a good way)
Got a pair of these. Very solid but that picnic tablecloth "fabric" will have to go! (its vinyl)
Crazy for this canary yellow lamp. It weighs a ton and has that amazing lattice detail. Sweet! The lampshade was classic thrift store condition:
Me: Can I just leave this with you?(handing cashier the fly-poop stained ill-fitting lampshade)
Cashier: (looks at shade, then at me, then at cashier next aisle over, then back at me) Says nothing.
Cashier at next aisle over: (sighs) it's okay, they always wanna do that..
Somebody was awarded this in 1971 for something, but I won't be able to read the rest of it until the tarnish is removed. On silver, I love Wright's Silver Cream. About $6 at Walmart and gets the job done. I can't wait to fill this with orchids.
A pair of these before (in great shape, but slightly oppressive)
Upholstery fabric by Covington is treated for outdoor use, meaning cleanups will be a breeze!
Alabaster! Got a pair..
Added a cute striped lampshade from Target. Already sold at my space at The Galleries at Southside.
Sanding + glossy white paint + leftover calendar prints under new glass top.
Hope your week is fruitful!
