I’m back from an amazing getaway with my two cousins Kelsey and Meredith over the weekend. We went to Napa and did it up right–I need to detox after all the good food and wine. If you follow me on Instagram you saw the pictures of our trip but I’ll do a post soon to share more details. It was special for us for just having a girls getaway but also more than that as it was a very special place for Kelsey and James so we enjoyed toasting him and remembering the good times with him.
Onto other things for tonight though. I hope everyone had a good Passover or Easter or beginning of spring and if you are home with your kids on spring break–I feel ya. We had a rainy start to our vacation week and I was pulling out every craft I could think of this morning. The rain stopped after lunch and tomorrow should be nice so we are getting out of the house for sure. I may be posting less this week because I really do want to spend some time with these guys while they are home.
Last week I mentioned I was working on stuff for the upcoming flea market. I will have a much smaller inventory than usual but I did find these two mid century side tables:
For some reason I only photographed one but there are two. I hated the finish on them and the veneer was in pretty bad shape on one side but I loved the lines, the brass feet, and the drawer. I thought I could refinish them to more of a walnut color but the veneer was really thin and wouldn’t take any sanding. So plan B was paint them. I don’t usually like painted mid century pieces–especially when they are painted to try to turn them into something they aren’t–so instead of my usual ASCP I decided on a high gloss black, but only on the outside:
I think it really brings out the brass and the detail on the drawer. These could be so cool in the right space. I’ll have them for sale this weekend barring the rain that’s been forecast.
