Yeah, so I put a bird on it. Kill me.
This past rainy weekend we made an outing to the Dutch Valley antique mall. In the midst of all of butter churns and 1980’s novelty drinking glasses, I made a few finds.
This wooden bird was $7, and it’s actually pretty sweet. I originally thought about painting it a flashy color. But now I kind of like the homespun scratched-up wood finish on his distended midsection.
I also picked up this rack of antlers for $12. I didn’t notice until I got in the car that one of the nubs was broken off. I was blinded by the irrational excitement of buying some affordable antlers.
They look kinda lonely up there on the mantle. We’ll see where they end up.
I don’t want to go out and buy too much crap until the sofa comes in next week. I’m mostly holding off on rugs and window panels until I can see what the room looks like with a new giant piece of furniture. I CAN’T WAIT until this sofa comes. Seriously, six weeks? I’ve never paid for something that far in advance before in my life.
Oh, and there just might be an adventure to an IKEA in my near future. That’s right, the happiest place on earth when you’ve been deprived of one for the past three years. What flat-packed goodies will I come back with this time?
