And the crowd goes wild!!
Or, umm, not. If you’re a fan of Cathrineholm you’ll understand. I scored not one but TWO pieces this weekend at two different Salvation Army locations. I made that small little gerbil-like squeal that one makes when they find a treasure but wants to keep it on the *down low*. So very excited! Look around your Grandmother’s house, if she has any of this enamelware with lotus leaf stuff, toss it in your purse and mail it to me! Kidding.
Check out the Flickr group. Gorgeous.
I also managed to find a large glass dome. I have been wanting one of these since, well…
Since I saw the one Ozzy Osborne had on his reality show.
He had an enormous glass dome covering his plate of cheese and I swooned (for the dome!).
The nightstand is killing me. The paint on the top is not smooth and lacquer-like. It’s actually kinda rough and matte. Sigh. Whatever. Uncle! I put a stencil on it and painted a sparrow. Later I dotted it with gold metallic paint to make it look a little aged and worn. The gold flecks on the bird and the drawer handle make it look like it was meant to hang with the Draper dresser. Need to get a glass top for this.
I finished stabilizing the Dorothy Draper (real/faux) dresser and spot painted some of the rougher spots. Slowly putting stuff in there. I want to make large color photocopies of the Draper fabric to line the interior and of course a glass topper.
What did you do this weekend? Any great scores or discoveries?
