when i went to visit my sister in grand rapids a couple weeks ago,
we visited some amazing antique shops in the area.
there were some really beautiful pieces of furniture, i was practically drooling.
and daydreaming of living in a place that would actually fit all of them.
we have a rather small living room in our duplex. when we first moved in,
we had a giant glass top coffee table from ikea that we'd bought used.
(you can see a pic here.) eventually i got sick of it taking up such a
large portion of our living space, so i got rid of it & we went without a table.
as for a side table, i used a stack of a few vintage suitcases,
which looked cool, but was definitely not a good place to set a glass of wine.
to my good fortune, i found a side table & coffee table that were both inexpensive
& small-ish. i also found a beautiful blue mason jar & an old milk bottle,
which are the most perfect vessels for fresh ranunculus, i must say :)
have you found any note-worthy antique finds lately?
p.s. if you live in the detroit area, do you have any know of any
good antique shops in the area?!
