Just a few favorite corners around my little apartment these days.
ACS got me this chalkboard—by local maker Mark Nodeen of 390 Design—for my birthday, and I love it. The color is perfect and it’s huge and awesome.
I found two of these vintage chairs at an Orlando thrift shop with my mom, and I love them. They’re sturdy and comfortable and beautifully made, and the original upholstery is in fantastic shape. I threw faux sheepskin throws (from IKEA) to protect them from little kitty-cat claws, and I think eventually I’ll have them reupholstered, but for now I love them exactly the way they are.
This birdcage is from a Goodwill trip last weekend, and I promptly spray-painted it a cheerful bright yellow. Then I stuck a big succulent in it.
On that same trip to Goodwill (or “Goodies,” as my bestie Kate and I call it), I picked up two colorful baskets, including this little one that I love. It fits perfectly on a bookshelf next to my treasured archive of Domino and Blueprint magazines, and is perfect for holding random odds and ends. (And yup, that’s a brick that I spray-painted gold—the easiest DIY ever.)
