Sneak Peek for White Wednesday

Progress on the dining room/living room is going slow. 
There is back to school time, a big yard sale, planning a big gathering for out of state family, and my daughters 11th birthday all coming up in the next few weeks.

But I snapped a few sneak peek photos in time for White Wednesday link party at Faded Charm!
The buffet that came with my table and chairs from Craigslist.
I'm a lamp lover. This one is perhaps my favorite, only $6 from a yard sale several years ago. It's sitting on a silverplate cake stand and a flower ring from the bins at the GO {Goodwill Outlet}
  A brass candle stick on marble base from another yard sale years ago. It's missing some crystals but it was only a dollar.
 I can't get enough of these old Syroco wall things. Most people paint them but I love them in all their original gold glory. This one was also a GO find.

Metal tiered thingy. I put ironstone plates on it. Guess where it's all from? Yep the GO. I told you me and the GO are Bff's forever!
Tea set, silverplate tray, vase and flowers....also came from the GO once upon a time.
 And here is a tiny sneak peak of what is going on with my mantel at the moment...subject to repeated change of course!
Really lovin the gold hand under glass though. It was a $1 yard sale find.

Anywho hope you enjoyed the sneak peek and that you are having a fabulous White Wednesday!


  1. Oh I just love this! It looks beautiful. Great job.

  2. well.... I was suppose to start painting today but now I have the urge to go to Goodwill.My favorite part of redecorating is the treasure hunting.

  3. SO pretty Nicki! I love your displays on this gorgeous buffet. And I always admire thriftiness. I like your previous posts about Goodwill, because I, too, am a die-hard bargain hunter. :)
