Where did the time go??

I got sucked into a wormhole, that's for sure! I don't know where the time has gone. We've been busy, busy but I have managed to add a couple of pieces to my ever growing collection of furniture to rehab.

Before I go into furniture, my dear friend, Leslie has a fun giveaway on her blog at Peachy Keen. Check out what she's up to & you'll get a good laugh!

Ok, back to the furniture....first up, we have this lovely cabinet:

This was a gift from my mom for my 4 year wedding anniversary. I've mentioned before that she gets me and gifts like this are how I know!

It is an old record player with all the mechanics still in...we're going to have to gut it. It's going to be great storage. My clevah sister, Julie, suggested using it as a kitchen island and I think it's going to be perfect!

That hole on the side is for the turntable crank. How cool is that? We're going to put boards across the bottom for more storage and attach small caster wheels.

It's the perfect size and allows plenty of walking room & some additional workspace. That's Olive Oyl..she's the last foster kitty I have crashing at my house until we find her a home (hint, hint).

Next find is this cute table:

If you remember I did have this set up in this little was cute but not very functional. I saw this table at HFH and I couldn't NOT get it. I've seen this style several times in antique stores but never for under $100 and I snatched this one up for $35.

I love the aged top. I think I'm going to leave it like this and just clean it up.

The corner seems a little dark but once I add all of these it will brighten up the table & the corner. BLT is ready to set up his bar area on the buffet, so I have to get organized.

On that note, as you can see, we're all ready to relax this weekend..I think the kitties will be the only ones doing that..we are scheduled tight for the next 48 hours. Have a good weekend!


  1. I think it is going to look GREAT as a kitchen island-I'm anxious to see what you do with it-I know it will be fab.u.lous. That was a fun afternoon if only for a few hours-you, me and mom-the Grand Tribeca...

  2. I primed this sucker today...what a mess - found a hornet's nest in it! This is gonna be awesome!
