Vintage Telephones

Remember when everyone had one of these hanging on the wall in their kitchen?

I was browsing a local second hand store the other day when I came across this black wall phone for a mere $9.95 and I thought of the perfect spot in my kitchen for it! Of course it is not a working phone, merely for decorative purposes but I just love it!

Baby Bed Bench

I have always loved the idea of turning a baby bed you are no longer using into a bench:
Here is one I found on the internet for those of you who, like myself, just can't let go of precious treasures!

This was one of my latest projects. I have been slowly adding a few black accents to my home. This is an apothecary cabinet that I got several years ago. It is made of pine and it had a very light stain on it. I just love the cabinet but felt like it was in need of an update. I painted the knobs an off-white and then distressed some of the drawers and edges. The lace runner is an antique I picked up at a local auction.

A little wall art I created for my daughter Randee's bedroom. I used some wall paper for the background and jewels that came on a purse to add to the frame that I painted black. I will be posting more pictures of her bedroom when I am finished....
