Well, apparently you all have me figured out. Of course that little yellow desk from the flea market came home with me! I couldn't resist. (Not that the rest wasn't tempting too...the teacups would have come home too, except that I already have that whole set. There was one more thing, though, that made it home - you'll see it soon!)
So the table is home with me now - in my bathroom for the moment. Placed right next to my newly constructed shower curtain, the combination makes me feel like I got a little room do-over. Always a good feeling...especially when it's super affordable and mainly handmade.
I used a vintage bedspread that I had on my fabric shelves, added some strips of lace, a few doilies randomly scattered (ie. conveniently placed over the discolored age spots on the bedspread), and put a strip of buttonholes at the top for the curtain tabs. An easy, quick new shower curtain. (There's a regular, fabric shower liner on the other side to keep the water out.)
Well, it involves standing in one's bathroom sink, actually. (In wool tights, I might add - on July 1st. It's literally the darkest June we've had since 1903. But that's a whole other story the likes of which you're probably sick of hearing about from us New Englanders.)
Friends, never doubt my dedication to bringing you the latest news in my world of handmade. I'll stand in the bathroom sink for you.
