Who doesn’t love Tiana from The Princess and the Frog?! SUCH a cute movie! I know she probably isn’t considered a real “Disney princess” just yet, but she totally is in my book. When I put together this outfit, there were a few “must-haves.” It definitely needed to include green and some sort of “frog” element. … Continue reading
Mulan featuring short sleeve shirts It was difficult to kind of pinpoint which outfit would represent a modern Mulan look since she spends most of her movie dressed as a man, so I thought I would follow the Asian/dragon route without being too cliche. I really like the monochromatic black, especially the kimono-style top, with … Continue reading
Miles to Go by Richard Paul Evans My rating: 3 of 5 stars When I found a recommendation for this book, I (stupidly) did not realize it was the second book in a trilogy; I LOVE Richard Paul Evans, however, so I decided to read it anyway. Not having read the first book, I didn’t … Continue reading
I’m taking the week off for Teacher Tuesdays this time around, but be ready for next week! I’ll have something to share, too. Thanks for understanding!
Today, Dad and I went garage and estate “sale-ing” to find some furniture for my new apartment! While we didn’t have much luck, we WERE able to score one really great piece…FOR FREE!
It’s in need of a total restoration, but it’s a Pooley Radio Cabinet for Atwater Kent Radios (without the radio) in a beautiful mustard color! It’s been through a lot of wear and tear (and teenage angst apparently…), but we thought it could be fixed up nicely into a totally unique and functional piece!
Check it out!
We both agreed that this would be something that American Pickers would choose to restore. I’m thinking I’ll use it as a TV stand and put my DVD player in the radio compartment that has an opening in the front.
After doing some research, I’m thinking that this piece was made in the 1920s or 30s. I love it! Even though it will require a lot of attention, I think it will be an awesome focal point in my future living room.
I’ll keep you posted with its progress!
What do you think of this piece? Have you ever done any furniture restoration? If so, do you have any tips?
When I made these outfits on Polyvore way back when, I can’t believe I completely forgot about Snow White! I mean, she’s one of THE original! It’d be a little more understandable if I didn’t remember Giselle or Tiana…but anyway, I am particularly excited about this one because I’ve included a day AND night look! … Continue reading
