Refresh and Renew



Almost everyone ends up inheriting at least one antique from your mom's-mom's-great aunt's-cousin twice removed that you are less than enthused about. I love this picture from Apartment Therapy because it shows a very traditional (probably stained in a former life) piece painted cream with a fun wallpaper behind the shelves. This is by no means a new concept, but I really like the pink and orange faux bois wallpaper for a super funky twist.

I LOVE hutches...

I adore the home office version from room service and my boyfriend's grandmother has a beautiful antique one

I love pink and orange! This is so pretty. It's my birthday today and I'm treating myself by reading my favorite blogs.

Visual Vamp, Happy Birthday!

It kind of makes me want to hit some estate sales and see what kind of jewel I can dig up...

I inherited a piece identical to this, so it made me laugh! And yes, I'm trying to make it fit with our decor...great pic.

I like this idea too and the piece looks so fresh.

My mother's got a very good one of those, but I want one NOW and will paint it up like this one if I get it!
