Weekend Finds

So a new week with new adventures starts!  My weekend was very productive (in a good way!).   I worked on another recipe – this time a coffee vanilla liqueur.  It was quite easy to make and should be ready in 4 weeks.  I think I’m finding this to be a new hobby of mine and will be looking forward to making more liqueurs – maybe even check out a book from the library.

I am still working on my bedroom and making progress.  I found a desk from my bedroom office and had to jump on it as soon as I saw it.  It’s a parsons table from West Elm that generally runs around $300.  I saw this beauty at the outlet for half the cost and knew this was the one.  It has two drawers in the front and a high gloss finish.  I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out so far.  Here’s how it looks…

Sorry for the dark picture – I snapped it last night.  Oh and ignore the layout of the cables – haven’t had time to organize them.  As for the lamp I am using, it is from the 1940’s that I rewired about 10 years ago.  You cannot believe how heavy this floor lamp is (the base is made of marble).  It’s hard to see in this picture, but it has a white wash on the post.

What I still need:

1.  Desk Chair – I have an idea of what I want (mid-century with hairpin legs), but I think the one I have in mind will be difficult to find.

2. Rug – Looking to place some color in front of the bed.

3.  Headboard, Dresser – I am looking for a farmhouse style frame and have been waiting for a deal (Right now the price for one I’ve been keeping an eye on is $1500).  Patience is key for this one…

4.  Vintage Buffet – Still looking out for this.  It’s been really hard to find one in decent condition that’s reasonably priced.
