Typewriter in teal: $55
I have an addiction and it's one that can't be helped. I'm obsessed with sifting through antique and thrift stores. I can't help it- there's just something about having a sea of furniture and objects from the past at my disposal that gets me giddy.
I did stumble upon some great pieces, all of which would make a nice vignette together. There's a definite recurring theme of teal, black and white, with a touch of yellow. The total for all these things rounded out to just shy of $800, the chairs and art being the bigger ticket pieces. But I think they'd all make for a fun lounge space. Figure in a side table plus some paint [say, in a light grey], and I'd have an entirely new room ready for around $1000. [I could totally do one of those HGTV-style shows]
Like this look? Take me shopping with you, and we can get any space pieced together in no time.
Tomorrow I'm heading to the monthly Scott's Antiques Market, which I've actually never been to. It's supposedly one of the best places to get anything and everything in Atlanta, so I'm looking forward to some good finds. Happy hunting!
