What I LOVE is that stool.
Check it out! It is a step stool...but flip it over and it is stool you can sit on. What a fabulous idea for the "not so big" house! I wish I could find one. I'm going to have to find someone to make me one. Any takers?
Anyways, just thought I'd show some stuff we have either inherited, saved from becoming salvage for others to buy (read: got it from the trash), or actually purchased for future use in the restoration of Irvington Bungalow.
i love this sink...we hope to use it in our future laundry room ~
an old Chambers stove...we're considering having it restored for use in our future kitchen ~
a beautiful door for which we have no use ~
a stained glass window (one of several we now own)...we're going to restore it and hang it above the fireplace mantel ~
an old Coke machine...i have no idea what the hell we're going to do with this but it's cool ~
We actually have several other things sitting around however blogger wouldn't let me post any more pics. Besides the weather is fab so i'm going outside to enjoy the day!
The weather this weekend turned back to winter - cold and rainy. We decided to use it as an opportunity to go to one of our favorite places, White River Salvage. Chad wanted to look for pins (I think that's what they are called) for the kitchen window hinges. We've never been able to open our kitchen windows because the pins were missing. There are currently nails holding the hinges together. Very classy, I know. We also just love to look at all the stuff there. Tons of old doors, windows and just a lot of ... stuff! That's the only way to put it. If you look close enough in the top picture you'll see a Ronald McDonald. Maybe we should get it for our front yard.
The other project we worked on was installing some landscaping in the backyard. As far as I know this was impromptu. We were given the limestone last year by a co-worker at the time. I thought for sure this pile of rocks would lay in our back yard for years but, ta da, here it is in an actual landscape. We ordered a good amount of plants for some parts of the yard so soon (we promise neighbors) our house will start to look not-so-sucky on the outside.
For the living room ~
I have an obsession with bowls and these are fab ~
I just love these ~
Ugh. I need to win the lottery or something.
Last night I went to a concert at The Vogue in Broad Ripple. Some of my friends and I usually try to see local band Margot and the Nuclear So and So's when they are in town...this time it was for a good cause, Rock for Riley. All the proceeds are donated to Riley Hospital for Children. The show was GREAT despite that I am super tired today (that's because I'm old and the average age of the people there last night didn't help me feel better about this at all - pretty sure it was around 22). Anyways, Margot are from another historic neighborhood in Indy - Fountain Square.So anyways, today is beautiful so we're going to do some yard work and work on the attic in prep for the insulation. Happy Spring!!
