A while ago I found two solid wood boards on the curb. Dark and scuffed-up wood. Looked like they were table leaves in a past life. So I had to come up with a plan on how to use them.
With a pair of scrolly brackets from Hobby Lobby (half off mind you) I turned one of the boards into an over-door shelf in the bathroom.
Maybe not the best decorating I've ever done. But it adds some coziness to this slightly cold-feeling room, it helps fill that empty overhead space and gives me another surface to accessorize :) I wasn't sure about it at first but I think it gets to stay now, quirky though it may be. Before.
I messed around with the styling for a bit.
Before I settled on the final configuration.
That pink vase started out like this (a thrift store find).
The second board I decided to use in the bedroom. A pass-through area near the foot of our bed that kept collecting clutter needed a functional console/vanity instead.
Using the broken pedestal (another curbside find) as the support (it's missing one of it's feet)...
Some styling with items from other areas of our home left me with a cute (albeit quirky) and functional vanity.
With a hint of the exotic, of course :)
What do you guys think - does it look too much like landfill? I kinda like it. At least it's not mainstream, right? :)
And my usual disclaimer - the walls in here are going to be a light gray/purple eventually. Just FYI :) Wouldn't want you guys to think I like white walls or anything :)
