My Romantic Home!
Here's the story and I'm sticking with it: For The Wedding we rented truckloads of items, first the tent itself, then chairs, tables and so much more. We rented 15 large round tables for eating but I decided I could save a little money for the other tables (food, drinks, etc) by using tables from around here. One day I was up in our shop and I saw this nice, big, heavy, oak table leaning against the wall. Nothing was on it, we had pulled off the hinges and knob years ago. I helped Mark attach some of those legs that are on folding tables and voila! A perfect table for the wedding.
We put layered some pretty tablecloths on it and put it in the "Candy Shack" for gift. (I'll have to talk more about the candy shack another day....delightful!). Nice table, right? Oh, the gift card MAILBOX might be another story, I made that, too, from an old beat up mailbox I found years ago in a dump pile. But by the end of the night you couldn't even see that cute mailbox, I should have made sure it stayed in front somehow!
(The "Candy Shack" was in our little barn! So was the gift table and more!)
I put a white tablecloth on the table-door. Probably not a good idea, you know how quick that white is going to have paint, markers, soldering burns and more on it? But for now it's fine.
(Notice the tote, I've tagged it as "Heidi's Tulle Box"!)
(I don't have any curtains, drapes or shades on the window, only the deer can see in anyway!)
(In this photo notice the light fixture. I made it from an old light, painting it white, wiring it in the ceiling and adding the beads and garlands.)
(Notice my soldering tray on the floor, I need to put that away!)
(Notice another tote on this sewing table. Whenever I see them at garage sales I always buy them, take them home and paint them white. I love totes! One time a seller wouldn't sell just the tote, I had to take everything in it. That actual turned out good, Mark was happy for the nails, screws and hardware--all for $2, not bad! There's another wood tote or two under the big door-table.)
(I built this corner shelf a long time ago for Jessica, when she had this room as her bedroom.)
(This is my motto out here in the country, there are no stores nearby:
"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.")
