White Wednesday " Goodwill = Love "

I love how the Dior home is filled

with such amazing treasures that

I find at the Goodwill...

So much that Mr. Dior asked for

a small change in scenery that would remind us

of the coastal vacation spot that we love...

I decided I still had to put my style into it

with my love for industrial.

Yes it's true I'm not a ruffles kind of girl...

The industrial table is an old

cobbler work station from  Chicago. I placed it

as a platform to start my vignette. I love all of the holes

and nubby crannies that it has. The age worn character

is my favorite part...

{it even had the drawer missing]

I scoured the Goodwill for nice books that

go well with the decor and make an

eye pleasing display...

Mr. Dior and I found these old benches at

the Goodwill that were such a steal.

We brought them home and recovered them

in remnant linen that I found there

in their curtain & bedding section.

These benches will be the perfect extra seating that

can be tucked away when not in use.

I love using natural elements which

I typically can find at the Goodwill

in the basket section ie old wood

crates that can be white washed...

I will be sharing more of the room next week

using all of our Goodwill finds...

My gratitude to Apartment Therapy for

on their website yesterday...

I am linking up to Kathleen's

Have a beautiful week ladies

That table is fantastic! Shopping GW for your beautiful decor is so smart, you can change it up whenever Mr.Dior gets the urge:) I just know that your guests don't think that is where you find all of your beautiful treasures. t.xoxooxo

LOVE your display, Lady Kate! The Willie Willie is one of my favorite places to go for home accessories too. I keep telling Mr. CB that I've saved him a fortune, he keeps telling me "look around, no you haven't". LOL He says I nickel and dime him to death. I think he's right :(
Oh if I could only STOP loving chotchkies and starting "collections". Ni modo!

Happy White Wednesday, Princess!

I can just imagine you need all the extra seating you can find. You have such a beautiful, warm home, I bet it's filled with not just treasures, but with friends galore.
P.S. Lovin' that table and the lamps.

Kate, the cobbler table is lovely. I'm always in awe at something so old and tattered can actually be eye appealing!
