Newest Home Additions

Well, actually these new purchases will go in to storage until I can clean and refinish the wood. But I just love my new acquisitions:

I DIE!! I just love these French leopard print Regency chairs, a haute find on eBay. I just had to get them as soon as I laid eyes on them. I can't wait to get them home!

I have two ideas in mind for these chairs. The first would be to keep the leopard and paint the frame a high gloss black OR... stay with me... paint the frame with a high gloss white and replace the leopard with vinyl faux croc in either, white, silver gray or black.  Whatcha think?

Now, I just have to find a table. I'm thinking a 60" round on a pedestal. Although they would be equally fab for a long rectangular table but I think I would have to add two different types of chairs for the ends of the table.. I don't know, we'll see.

My other purchase was this fabulous highboy.

A Craigslist find. It's a carved satinwood highboy dresser and I'm just smitten with it. I think the combo of this satinwood, which I've never heard of before but love the look and those gilded legs just did it for me. I'm thinking this will go in the bedroom, maybe.

My latest OBSESSION is silver bamboo flatware.

I really want a 45 piece set in sterling silver. I just love the look of the bamboo shape and I'm really gaga over the more circular handles, it just adds a little extra fancy umph, in my opinion.

Humm, I can't wait to see them redone, and that highboy gorgeous.

P.S. I love this... said...

Hi Tonia!!

Thanks for stopping by!

I was thinking one of two looks initially..

1. Leave the leopard, which I love and just give the wood a high gloss black finish


2. Paint the wood a high gloss white and replace the leopard with vinyl faux croc, in either white, silver gray or black.

Did you have any ideas?
