May 24, 2010Our New Sputnik Light and Kitchen Table Possibilities
Well, I am excited! We have started our summer renovating on the house. Maybe renovating is too strong of a word. We have started our “refreshing” of the house and Tom and I did a ton of stuff this weekend and had a lot of fun. Mostly we dug in the dirt in our garden, hacking out years of overgrown plants and enormous bushes to make way for the new fruit vines and bushes Tom got me for my birthday. But we still had some time to head out to Bay City to shop around for the house.
This mint green toilet has a pink cap!!! This cutie was already sold, but we also saw a small gray sink that I forgot to take a picture of. I love these old colored fixtures. I was trying to talk Tom into working a few of them into our garden, but he seems to think that would look trashy. What do you guys think?
Anyway, so we were on the hunt yesterday for house furnishings, and came across a few possibilities for a kitchen table.
Gray cracked-ice formica. We would have to get new chairs, but the table was in great condition.
A Hey-Wake table, but it was refinished poorly.
Or a giant tulip table! The padding would have to be peeled off the chairs.
I really love the Formica one, but Tom wasn’t as excited. He wants a reproduction table with boomerang Formica, so we will have to discuss.
Oh, and then there was this room!
Whoa. Lots of choices here! But now that we are picking things, I just can’t seem to find anything that is just perfect.
Oh, except for this:
Our new Sputnik fixture!!! Holy god!!!
I am so excited about this one. We found it at Americana in Bay City and just love it. It is the perfect size for our entryway. It has 24 arms, which I think is great! Oh, and it does have all the bulbs, we just removed some to store it safely.
More, better pictures are coming soon! What about you guys? Find anything amazing this weekend! Let us know!
