A few more pieces of furniture have arrived! John delivered the cart and the bench tonight. It's so exciting!!! To me, anyway. I love it all and it feels like piece by piece, it's coming together.
An industrial looking cart with pipes and castors to hold...hmmm...I'm not sure yet. A trip to Sojourn is in my very near future! Maybe Amy and Katie will meet me there?
And...wallah!!! The whole shebang! Do you love it as much as I do? I had him make it narrow so it wouldn't overwhelm the entry and I wanted it on castors so I could roll it over to the kitchen when I needed a bit more counter space. I know what you are thinking...where's the chotchky stuff that goes on it...one thing at a time. Once I get to Sojourn and do some antiquing I am sure I'll find some KEWL stuff to put on the shelves.
John finished the bench as well. I like this for a couple of reasons...primarily, for all of the ways I could use it. Here at my table, end of my bed, a coffee table, etc. The stains aren't a match but it makes me like it even more. It's custom. It's hand crafted. And now, I get to say my friend made it.
John stayed for a glass of wine and we chatted about some new things I wanted him to make. I showed him a narrow coffee table I liked but I want the top out of rafia...I'll have to show you a picture. A reclaimed wood headboard. Some picture frames. A piece of art out I saw, I thought we could re-create. A bike mount for my wall I saw in CB2 I know he could do. The list apparently goes on and on.
Me thinks...I have some awesome new furniture...but I've made an even better new friend.
