What Started With a Post on Bamboo.....

Ended in depression. You will see what I mean in a second. I have had bamboo on the brain lately, I think it stared with an amazing bench I saw so I wanted to do a bamboo related post. I was gathering information and had some good things like these cute magazine holders from Source Perrier..

And great "extra" chairs when you need more seating , but want it to look good too-


While the chairs above are a good deal from Ballard Designs, this set on e-bay starting @ $40/chair is not bad either.....



















EVERYTHING WAS PROGRESSING AND I DECIDED TO CHECK OUT A SITE I LOVE BUT NOT HAD BEEN ON IN A WHILE AND THAT IS WHEN THINGS GOT INTERESTING....I WAS FINDING SOME PIECES THAT HAD GREAT POTENTIAL- YES THEY NEED A LITTLE IMAGINATION, SOME PAINT, AND LOT OF TLC. I SEE METALLIC SILVER FOR SOME LIKE THE LIGHT ABOVE, OR AN ACCENT COLOR FOR THE CHAIR BELOW.....

AND I WAS PICTURING THIS PAIR OF MIRRORS IN AN ENTRY WAY...
OR THESE IN A BATHROOM (YES I WOULD PROBABLY PAINT ALL OF THIS)
THEN I CAME TO THIS CHAIR WHICH I WAS DRAWN TO BECAUSE I, LIKE SO MANY OTHERS IN THE WORLD, LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRINT - IMPERIAL TRELLIS BY KELLY WEARSTLER FOR SCHUMACHER.

SO THERE I WAS CONTENTLY SEARCHING AWAY WHEN I CAME TO THIS.....















A SIDE BOARD I KNEW MUST BE MINE. I WOULD LOVE IT, TAKE CARE OF IT, PAINT IT ON THE OUTSIDE AND DO SOMETHING FABULOUS ON THE INSIDE, IT WAS GOING TO BE MY BABY, YOU WOULD HAVE LOVED THE "AFTER" PICTURE ...BUT ALAS THERE TAUNTING ME WAS A BIG SOLD SIGN. I KNOW IT IS A SAD DAY, SOLD SIGN BE DARNED!

I guess I will have to keep visiting Circa Who until I spy the next piece I cannot live without...
