This is a spur of the moment project in the corner of my living room that I haven't finished with yet. I'm actually working on my office and I needed to find a new home for this old music cabinet.
It actually belongs to Hunter. He bought it at an auction several years ago for $25. All the insides were gone including the Victrola up top but the cabinet itself was in perfect condition. Hunter tends to buy what he likes without regard to where he's going to put it. Since it was in such good shape and my cd/radio fit in it perfectly I offered to take it off his hands. I think when Hunter grows up and moves out, my house will be a little empty!
Now on to
my our recent find. You see the two top landscapes? Hunter and I were at an auction a couple of weeks ago and five painted canvases went up. Nobody bidded and the price had dropped down to $3! My hand flew up, along with Hunter's at the same time! The auctioneer got me at $3 and Hunter at $4! So, we got five paintings for $4. I used two of them here.
The two smaller paintings are recent Goodwill finds. The framed painting was $5 and the unframed $2. I do plan on framing all of them. Like I said this was a spur of the moment project!
A little closer look....
Now I need a little advice. Should I paint the floor lamp or maybe put a lighter shade on it? Maybe when I get the frames, I need to go with a white or light color? Whatca think?
Thanks for stopping by! I would love if you would become a new follower! Leave me a comment and I'll follow you back.
