Jo’s weekend thrifting

Posted on Sun, 11 May 2008 by midcenturyjo


Kim scored a fabulous vintage Herman Miller Eames shell chair. I on the other hand found something a little different. A World War II era Australia Red Cross Society bookcase. Old, chippy, crackled paint with 2 metal and enamel badges at top. Complete with dust and daddy-long-legs spiders. The perfect home for my retro decorating books. I’m just going to clean it and replace the handle and that’s it! After I get rid of the spiders. Until then it’s living in the garage… hate spiders!
