Angela showed hers. So did Beki. So here is mine. Still a work in progress, but I love it.
Those chairs came with the house. The original owners from the 1800's owned them. I had them upholstered in a plain cotton duck to show off their lines. Back on the window seat is the birdcage I plucked from the trash. And that blue cabinet is from an estate sale a few weeks back.
I plan on removing the top and replacing it with a slab of stone or marble. It's the perfect sort of chippy paint.
This is the "fancy" living room. Mostly I hang out here alone or it is used for holidays and parties.
Thank you for all the kind and supportive comments you left about opening a store! Some days I think I'm a little crazy. I've never even worked retail before! I was always a waitress kind of girl. But between reading Retail for Dummies and A Shop Of One's Own I'm learning as much as I can! This week the interior of the shop is being gutted. It has been somebody's apartment for 50 years! I'm going over tomorrow to snap some pics.
