My 20.00 Find~! woohooo:Updated

I dont have alot to show but I sure do love what I did get. it was off  Craigs list but that's sorta a continuous yard sale lol...  Its in great shape but I may paint it white anyway.. Not sure about that yet.. For now I'll leave it as is.
I have a 7 ft. opening from my dining to my family room and thats where I'll let it sit for now. I dont think I'll have any trouble decorating it as I have lots of teapots :) some of ya'll know that already .. I'm thinking it'll be great to do my scapes on and that way I wont have to mess with my dining table constantly.. 
  I also found 2 great oval mirrors at goodwill. I got one painted and hung.. I'll try a plate display around it tommorrow and take a few photos , I can always see things better in a photo than I can with my nekkie eyes..
 Ya'll be sure to look on my sidebar for Debbie's blog link. Click on it and that will take you to her thrifting party so you can see what treasures others found this week..
Here's the tea cart.. $20.00
The sides lift up on both sides to make it larger.  I was thinking I might rent one of those frenchie maid costumes and surprise my hubs with treats on a teacart.. whatcha think??   lol

Too dark to get a good photo of the new mirror so I'll come back tommorrow and add pics.. 
thanks so much for visiting me and dont forget to go see DebbieDoo and her other posters..
I love reading your comments and seeing your lovely smiling faces here and I know they'd all love a visit too..
I did a quick mock up of plates around the oval mirror I spoke of..
I just used white as a sample but I have blue and white I could use also..
Do you like this configuration?? I'm trying to figure it out before I put holes in that wall I just patched and repainted:)

I'm also participating with Kate .. Lots of great inspirations posts there this friday..
Just click on the link above to take a look..
Thank you Debbie and Kate for hosting these parties.

I think today was the day to add my Sorority Sister art:) I think....
Unfortunatly I dont have a printer so I made mine in an art program..
I hope this entry keeps me in good standing with all my SS's..

Sonny Needs Suggestions...please:)

 First off i want to thank all of you so much for the lovely compliments on my living room redo.. I really enjoyed the black and white theme since last oct. but NOW its time for a change.. Those of you who know me know that no matter how great something is, I must change it , hehehehe..  
   The more I look at all the lovely cottage homes here on the many blogs, the more I love that look.. Some things, I cant change, but others I can.. I can almost hear the gasps of horror by some when I say-- "I'm planning to PAINT some furniture"   ...  ok, now that the gasping is over lets get on to which pieces I want to paint..
I think this wardrobe would be nice painted white and I am considering adding the beadboard wallpaper to the front and side indented sections.. I saw some adorable checked knobs at hobby lobby's site - Love those and feel they would work great- especially since its right behind the game table I made out of that old frame..
 so thats the plan on that- now- what do ya think about those chairs at the game table also being painted white? they already have black n white checked seats so:)
 well dang- i dont seem to have a pic of the entry table but this black mirror would be removed and a white oval mirror would go in its place- chest underneath..
the other thing I'd love to change is the entry table and mirror.. I found an oval mirror at goodwill and have already painted it and I know theres a chest around here just begging to be painted..  Which would cure another issue I have -- lamp CORDS showing.. Some things just drive me beeeeezzzeeerrrk and one of the main ones is lamp CORDS showing lol... 
  When I get all these pieces painted and back in place, I'd really like to try my version of the beachy theme..
 I'll be storing all my black pieces in case these ideas dont work so I can slip everything back in place as it was.. 
  I would love to hear your THOUGHTS and any SUGGESTIONS as I admire so many of your Homes and decor styles..  Just speak your mind, it wont hurt my feelings... I'll remember to thank all of you when this plan comes together... This , to me. is like having 100 brilliant designers doing my room. Thanks in advance..

I appreciaite you stopping in even if you dont have any suggestions. just knowing I'm not doing this alone makes all the difference to me...

Hugs and happy Thoughts
