Hi everyone! Some of you may remember when I bought this
at Goodwill (for under $7!) and thought it would make a great nightstand since I could use all those slots for my plethora of magazines!
Here it is! I painted it black (I think I may go back and distress it a bit when I have more time). It’s just perfect!
Want to see what I’m reading? “The Fixer Upper” is sooo good. It’s all about this young lobbyist from DC who moves to Guthrie, Georgia to fix up an old neglected house that her father inherited called Birdsong. There’s more than just house stuff going on, there’s some political intrigue and romance too. The author lives in Atlanta so it’s peppered with stuff you’ll recognize if you live here.
Here’s a side view of the table - I just love the lines of the legs!
Another thing I got at the thriftstore is this queen size cream and black Waverly bedskirt. I also found a red and white ticking twin that I’m going to use in the guestroom.
This is a platform bed and you really need a king if it’s going to go under the mattress because the platform part isn't just flat. I already had a king black skirt on the bed, so I thought it would be pretty if I layered the Waverly on top of the black one – a double ruffled dust ruffle. Well it's just not working for me! Maybe if the dustruffle underneath was white or cream? Right now it just looks like the Waverly one is too short since the black skirt disappears. I’ll figure something out – sometimes things just don’t workout the way you think they will!
Here are a few more photos.
This picture is matted in black and white ticking. I got it at Target years ago. I remember they had a series and now I wish I had bought the other prints!
The wall color is Robins Egg Blue by Martha Stewart (when she had paint at Sears).

Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you all are having a good week so far.
Also, if you live or have recently lived in the City of Decatur could you send me an email (Jersey95@aol.com). I have a few questions. Thanks!
