Furniture! Furniture! Woohoo! We need storage space. It’s a serious issue in our tiny little house. This piece is now in our dining room and it is, in a word, sturdy. If it were a person it would be a linebacker. The top panel actually folds down, like a secretary, only it’s too high for writing. It’s completely empty at the moment – but I have a lot of plans for it! The Rothko exhibit poster was thrifted too, a while ago. You might recognize that tree! Not every collection I have is thrifted: see those pretty spines on Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food magazines. I covered those other cookbooks with brown craft paper and labeled them with the good ‘ol DYMO label maker.
Now I’m interested in thrifting a handsome Saarinen table. Wouldn’t it look so pretty to the left of this piece…? Dear Thrifting Goddess! Help out a girl, would ya?
