flea market flare...


So the pictures kind of suck...but you sort of get the point. We went to DC's largest flea market that comes around three times a year, and picked up this 40s medicine cabinet for $100. Adam cleaned it up and we got anthropologie knobs. The great part is other than the medicine cabinet we didn't buy anything. We just used what we already had, so basically we went shopping in our house. The Kate Spade vase is filled with a mustache bouquet, from A's mustache party. The Kate Spade candy jar is filled with A and my new favorite game Banana grams. The alabaster chess set was my grandfather's, it is beautiful but hard to tell the pieces apart so not really great for actually playing chess. The chair was in our bedroom hidden in a corner. We had to reposition some frames with the taller chair, but the whole thing only took about an hour. The rest of it is filled with books and board games. So it is still quite functional. The area still needs some color, I'm thinking a little pillow of pop will be perfect. Perhaps this one from Urban Outfitters.

Anyway, despite the pictures I'm liking the little nook. I'd like to replace the glass with chicken wire, but Adam says he couldn't get the glass out. We'll see...
