Scott's finally!

I have so many good pictures from Scott's last month.  Can I just tell you that I could have written some bad checks?  Some months it seems like everything you see would be perfect in your home.  The problem is that I have quite enough furniture  so buying something would mean replacing something....which means sneaking it into the house and convincing my husband that it has ALWAYS been there.....and then trying to sell what WAS there.......or find a place to stash it.....yada...yada...yada.

Before we get to the pictures, can I tell you that my husband had a cold last week.  Now I know this is no news flash to some of you but crikey when men get sick they are SUCH BABIES.  He stayed in bed all day and I delivered no less than three meals to him.  Fast forward to today and I have the same cold.  Of course I will be packing the car for the beach, getting the dogs ready and doing practically everything so that all he has to do is throw his flipping suitcase in the car and go.  Bitter...party of one.

Enough complaining.....
Series of 4......so cool


Aren't they fab!
Oh yes...come to mama.....
More black and white goodness....
I LOVE this coffee table.  My base is similar, painted white, and I think I will put it outside for the summer to rust.  OH yea...the Mr. will be all over that one.  Your doing WHAT?
While we are on black and white....

Perfection.  Love this sofa.
And this chair could go with it!
Original finish on furniture...also love the wall hanging.  Hey...to the right is a rug that could also go in this room....See what I mean....
And then put this chair in to mix it up a little.
And a nice light fixture.  I find it amazing that most of these items were not together but I must have subconsciously building a room:)
Headboard.....slap me.
Yep....should have bought...cheap.
Drop leaf table that he just bleached!  You can buy this gel bleach and apply it to furniture to get this look....

The picture AND the chair.
Quite cool.....chairs and lamps.  Like ear rings....house jewelry.  Can't have enough.
More ear rings :)
I have a bench very similar in my basement....need to paint and recover.  
One to some pillows

Beautiful......would match nothing in my house.  I would have to start over and this pattern could almost make me do it.  Kelley you rock.
These on the other hand would match.....
Brass AND jewel tones are back.  Never thought I would see the day......
These would match my house also.....remorse......should have gotten.
And this rug.  I saw these at the mart for the first time last summer and I love them so much.  I am waiting for some of those great DIY people to dye a rug.  You know they will.
Finally, what is more beautiful than yellow flowers in a tarnished silver vase????

So trying to get out of town today for 10 days.  They have sanded the floors and are painting them white while I am gone.  Then the sealer, which I hope will prevent me from killing myself that I put white floors in my whole house.  People, this will either be the best thing I ever did or the worst.  
One of the problems is that the floors in the bedroom are white oak and the rest of the house is red oak.  Big difference, as when we were testing the strength of how white I wanted, when we would wipe off the paint to see the stain, they were turning pink.  SO....had to go a little more saturated on them.  

I may have to have one of those baskets at the front door with booties [like in a showhouse] in them for the rest of my life.  And the dogs.....well that is a whole different story.  I know you guys are scared for me.  It is like deciding to cut bangs in the summer when you have naturally curly hair.....big mistake.





Pin It!

I'm always amazed at all your finds! Good luck packing and getting on the road with your cold - no fun. And I, along with everyone else, cannot wait to see the white floors. It takes courage, but I think it will look great. So light and beachy - ah.

I'm with you on your theories on men and women and sickness... Hope the sunshine and beach location are just the Rx needed! Can't wait to see the white floors, I'm sure they will rock!

Sherry such eye candy. I can see why you thought about a hot check or two or three. So many pretty things!!! Loved all the black and white, of course!!! I put up your polyvore board today on my post!!! Have a wonderful trip to the beach, I on the other hand get to go to the dentist, oh joy,Kathysue

Cindy said...

OMG...... I want the mirror, and the 2 pink wing chairs, and those cool prints, and the leather chair, and most of all the rusted coffee table... i really really really want that...
and... i totally know what you mean about men being sick, i've worked a full day, dealt with 50 kid traumas, fixed lunches, fixed dinners, washed dishes, done laundry, feed the dogs, etc etc... when i was sick. And the guy,well, he just goes to bed for 2 days...

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

Wow Sherry, what amazing finds! I can't even decide which one was my favorite, I love them all. Have fun on your vacation, I hope you start feeling better soon. I can't wait to see your white floors, they will be beautiful.

SisterBatik said...

That looks like a veritable treasure trove!

hartmom said...

One question...why don't we have Scott's in Los Angeles? So not fair. Beautiful pics. Have an awesome vacation and try not to worry about your floors (impossible!). I'm sure they will look beautiful...and white shows dust way less than dark so no worries! :)

I know it's going to look fantastic - don't do the booties! Let is patina and age over time, again fantastic. M.

I hope that headboard goes to a good home. So pretty.

Good luck with the floors and you're right men are such babies sometimes.

B"itter...party of one." -- This cracked me up. I'll have to use that line sometime. BTW, what in the world are the amber globes of glass? Monster grape clusters?

Gretchen O. said...

Awesome as always! Have a great vaca at the beach...even with the cold. (I think my husband got the same cold...babies, I say!)

A Flair for Vintage Decor said...

Wow...what great finds! I really am going to have to get to Scott's soon...I have been very tempted to come down from Nashville! Have a wonderful time at the beach! Take care, Caroline

So many goodies! I love the sofa, the orange chair, the zebra stools and the white console! And I can relate with you when you said when men get sick, they are such babies. I even said that to my hubby sometimes because you know what? When he fell sick, it seems like he can't do anything besides lying on the bed all day and getting me to fetch him meals and water. On the other hand, when I fell sick, life goes on as usual. Now, I don't get it why men are deemed as the more macho gender? LOL!

Sherry,
You made me laugh with the baby comment….I have been such a baby this week too! There is a horrible thing going around.
My hubs took care of me though so I guess I can't complain the next time he is a baby!
Hugs,
Amy

Amanda said...

I personally want everything that you took a picture of. And you mentioned a gel that could bleach furniture - would you mind sharing the details on that gel? (amanda.calabrasi@gmail.com)

Good luck with those white floors. You're brave!

Lori said...

Oh my gosh, Sherry you always find the best things!! By the way, Kristen did dye an antique rug. Here's the link. http://kfddesigns.blogspot.com/2011/04/dyeing-rug.html
