I have a wish list of things I've always wanted. On this list? Rolltop desk, highboy, dining table which seats 12+ and...DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!!! An Empire Chest!
Give me a minute while I hit a cabbage patch move right quick! GO ME! IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
I found an Empire Chest and I couldn't be more ecstatic. It is in pristine condition. Early 1900's. HEAVY.AS.HELL!!!!! Clearly on days when my favorite consignment store lady calls...I need to rent a man and a Uhaul cuz I couldn't even move that sucker 3 inches. IT.IS.SOLID! It is so perfect I don't have to do a thing to it but well...there is this color that I adore and this piece is SCREAMING for it. The color you ask? ENGLISH YELLOW. With a shiny black top (I think. Might just keep the top as is but I just think black would be sooooooooo sleek.).
I know you can't "see" it but it's gonna be gorg. I just know it. You're going to have to trust me here. LOL! Oh...and I'm going to have a piece of beveled glass cut to put on the top because I'm thinking it will house a "bar" in my upcoming Monnie Retreat. LOL! Okay...okay...so it's a living/sitting room. No television. No electronics. It will be for reading and relaxing. It will be shiny and gorgeous with a white sofa and FABULOUS window treatments. with super fluffy blankies and lots o' lots of BOOKS! Yup. There will be a covered box at the entrance for your cellphone. NO ELECTRONICS! It will be a thing of beauty. (In my mind so far mind you! LOL!
Okay...so...the way my ADHD is set up, Robby will only let me get one piece at a time so that I don't have a lot of projects stacked up because I've gotten bored. Cuz we all know that can happen. In the words of one of the besties:
"Is there ANYTHING you can't do?????"
Answer? Yes...stick with anything for a lifetime. Hey...I get bored.
HAPPY WEEKEND! How is your weekend stacking up? What's the temp out by you? It was almost 80 degrees here today. Throwed the hell off.
