It reminded me so much of my granmom's gun metal table just like it that I knew it had to have it. My brother had my granmom's and since industrial design is such a popular style right now it could go anywhere in my house.
sweet tea sign I decided to dress it up a bit.
So what did I dress this beauty with? Well of course I had to get some new frames, because of course nothing I previously had would do... and Target did not fail. My mom and dad humored me and we stood in the frame aisle for about ten minutes as I walked up and down and up and down and I must say I am thrilled with my choices. I even brought a little chevron in, which is a first for me. I filled the frames with wonderful memories from this summer. The lower left is my mom, dad and I on the beach in England this summer. There were kite surfers and it was beautiful, and I swear I have never been so cold. The top left is lavender at a lavender farm in England with a bee on it. And the other photo is my amazing home group at church.
The other pieces, some Jones soda bottles and a Welch's Grape soda bottle with fun drip candles. The box is a tin from Nice, France filled with photos from my wonderful trips to Nice and Monaco. My favorites pieces are my granmom and grandfather's ruler and scale. I love having those piece of them close, especially when a scale is something I use everyday.
This table was a pleasant surprise in an unlikely place, but I am so thrilled to have it in my home. Another place to show off my memories and pictures of the ones I love with the ones I love.
