Hey you!

How are you?

I’ve got a little post over at Emily Henderson’s cool pants blog about thrift store furniture getting a little f-to the-unky. Check it out! Slack off at work!

These weirdo things from The Salvation Army got together and made a room baby. A totally psycho embroidered Frank Stella room baby.

      Kill me quick with those wingbacks! Actually, i could fall for them to be honest~the love/hate thing. Oh the type of stitching is called “crewel” i remember all the mothers loving that stuff in the 60’s/early 70’s. everything was crewl and our Moms were “antiquing” the furniture with the ragged paint.
      Love the velvet sofa look.

      Not crazy about the chairs…but that sofa is fab!

      I kinda love it all…but you really pushed it over the edge into total love with the campaign dresser and the Frank Stella allusion.

      Oh Morgie Morganstein, you are the best. A $60 thrift store couch and $10,000 in lighting, just the way it should be.
      I want to wedge myself into that dusty old thing and watch Please Give w/you.
      And congrats on being adored by famous people.

      Did I ever tell you I got an authentic bronze Platner coffee table off Craigslist for $65? 😉

      Yes, thats how I roll. Although I feel like I could make that stilnovo lamp, and I’ve got a capiz chandelier just wasting away in my garage. The laurel lamps, those may pose a problem, but its “inspirational” not aspirational maybe.

      I know we’ve never met – but trust me when I say that we share the same brain. Please, PLeAsE, PLEASE give me your sources – there is no Salvation Army that I know of that would have scores that lovely.

      Respectfully, and slightly mad,
