I am definitely doing the happy dance!!! Remember my headboard/foot board bench? Well, someone thought my little project was "chic & modern"!! That someone was none other than Stan Williams ( I could just die!!) aka The Elegant Thrifter and author of The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects and Vintage Details. If you haven't picked up his book yet.......you are definitely missing a treat. You can buy it at Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon or Powell. I feel like I have arrived!!!
His blog "The Elegant Thrifter" , is full of wonderful treasures he has found (he gets the best treasures), beautiful tablescapes, and of course his videos, love his videos!
You can see his "Reuse & Repurpose" a feature he does on Thursday where my bench is featured here.
I'm sure I'm like a lot of people...... when I have an idea..... I'm excited about it & can't wait to get it completed. I love seeing my ideas come to life and then there is that moment..... that moment I wonder if anyone else will see the beauty in it that I see. So to have someone like "The Elegant Thrifter" , the author of the most fabulous book, that is full of reuse and repurpose ideas...I'm on Cloud 9!!! I'm sure I will come down to earth in a couple of days :) But for now, I'm doing the happy dance :)
