Does furniture speak to me? Or would you just call it inspiration? Sometimes I just know what to do with a piece (though usually not instantly). Here's an example of how it goes down. On Tuesday I went to the thrift store and saw this table:
I loved the lines but I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to really sit with the possibilities. I left and drove maybe 5 miles before I thought YELLOW. Now, I'm not a yellow person. I don't even own any yellow. But it was definitely this yellow that popped in my head:
I had a mission. I turned right around and headed back to the store. Whew! It was still there! As I was on my way to the cash register I saw this vintage fabric that had not been out 10 minutes before:
Hmm...looks like I may have a Mod Podge project on my hands. The table and the fabric together set me back about $10.
Oh, and I was in such a rush to buy the table once it "spoke" that I didn't even see that it was missing a drawer.
No matter! I think I may know just what to do.
