Happy Friday!

Happy Friday dear readers! It has been a doozy of a week - I managed to trap my 3 feral kittens (HOORAY!), and now I am helping my husband get ready for the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market happening tomorrow and Sunday. So I leave you with this photo, featuring one of the coolest ideas for a side table I have ever seen. Via Casa Abril, photo by Marco Antonio

My new side table

Over a year ago I blogged a really cool idea I saw on The Selby - a vintage safe as a side table.

Low and behold, I recently came across one on Kijiji and my husband nearly lost his marbles. Turns out he is a huge fan of vintage safes too! Yesterday we drove for what seemed like hours to some little town out in the middle of nowhere and arrived at the home of a really nice man who sold us a very similar safe for $250 (I'm thinking this was a steal based on what little I've seen via some quick googling). It took 3 men to heave the 300 lb (or so) safe into our vehicule and somehow my husband and I managed to carry it into the house last night. Now it takes pride of place in the corner of my living room. The previous owner does not remember the combination (he's had it for over 40 years - when he was younger while drinking with his buddies they'd see who could lift it) so we'll have to figure out how to open it or find someone who can. In the meantime, I think it makes a sweet side table. :-)

Tablescapes

Last month I mentioned in this post that Manvi was holding a tablescaping design camp at the Mitchel Gold + Bob Williams showroom in DC. Manvi gave us access to a bunch of photos that were snapped at the event. The results, both for formal and informal gatherings, are really beautiful and inspirational...especially for someone like me who has absolutely no clue how to decorate a table.

Dining in the kitchen

Stacy emailed us recently asking for some inspiration for her sis: "We live in a very expensive "city" in the US, full of retirees, so the only affordable houses are either falling apart or brand new cookie cutter subdivision types. My sister and her husband are in the process of buying a new house and have chosen the new option. The kitchen, of course, consists of an L shape ...counters, cooktop, fridge, sink, dishwasher etc with no island or even room for one. I was wondering if you have a collection of rooms where the eating table is inside the kitchen? I would like to show her how she can make it look less boring in there." Hopefully the following photos of small-ish kitchens with mini dining areas will help Stacy's sister spice up her blah kitchen.
