Our set of colorful mismatched china is sufficient. It would take a special piece to add anything now. I think you've seen this cup before. A nice one for my morning coffee.
I'm going to show you one "finished" corner section of the living room. Here's a table I found for $15. I was going to paint it but decided I like it as is.
The original oil painting, framed, was $5. By someone named Wood, The vase less than $2
This is the finished area. Dark photo because I was trying to see how the lamp worked. It was the latest find for $10. Look closely, the yellow vase (bottom of table) was $1 and the vase on top is sitting on a stack of knitting books I already had.
The two chairs and ottoman had been in the house by the Bay for years. They are very comfortable and were recovered more than once. I rearranged furniture there and took these to the river. I've always loved the carving on the sides of the chairs.
I intend to paint that lampshade at some point but otherwise I consider this area done. Spent about $30 and relocated some furniture. I'm pleased with that.
That's my report. Now lets hop over to Elizabeth's blog and see what everyone else is talking about on this first Tuesday in November.
