I can’t believe we’re already here!  Friday!

via Classy with a Kick

I have to admit – I was really nervous getting this site up and running.  You know, writing and posting.  Putting myself out there, in a way.  But, it has turned out to be a really great experience, and I’m so excited to continue!

Thank you so much to everyone who has started reading and “liking” and just checking out the site.  All of the support really means a lot.

I also want to put a special THANK YOU out there to Kerry Steele!  She is a FABULOUS artist, and also has a blog that I find truly entertaining and inspiring. Please please check out her site and her art here:

I plan to use the weekend to unwind, spend some quality family time with “my guys”, and, of course, to pursue some vintage.  I’ll be back Monday with more great finds!

I love love love faux bamboo.  Really love it.  I don’t know what it is … maybe the daydream of living near a sandy beach?  The way the lines are not straight, but offer something unexpected?  The way a faux bamboo piece looks in a bright color and lacquered?  (Sigh)  Its just fabulous.  But, for all its fabulous-ness, I have yet to incorporate much of it into my own home.  I think I’m still pursuing the perfect piece.  The only piece I’ve kept for myself is this sweet (yet practical!) magazine basket.

Bamboo Mag Rack

 

I love faux bamboo so much, that I think I’ll do a little faux bamboo series.  I couldn’t possibly cover all the great pieces out there in one post!  So, let’s break it down.  Today we’ll check out dressers & consoles.

 

La Dolce Vita

 

Natty by Design

SUCH a WOW in red!!

 

The Newlywed Diaries

The gray is so unexpected!!

-Flights of Whimsy

I love the girly pink paired with the abstract art and blanc de chine lamps.

 

If you’ve incorporated faux bamboo into your decor, I’d love to see it!  (Especially any repainting projects).

Check out  my shop to see the bamboo-inspired pieces I’ve recently sold.  Once I get a piece, it goes quickly!  If you’re looking for a piece, check back frequently – I’m always on the hunt for more!

Its clear: lucite is all the rage right now.  (Did you catch that little play on words??!  Welcome to my corny sense of humor.)

I am so thrilled to share a truly exciting find!

Lucite Bar Cart

This lucite bar cart is in terrific condition.  The lucite is in great shape.  The wood shows a little wear from use (a circle water mark — Can’t you just imagine a bottle of opened champagne sweating a circle into that top during a great party?!).  It measures 33″ high and 34.5″ wide at the top.  I love the wood top.  Brings a little Danish-Mod into the mix.

Let’s peak at some other lucite bar carts out there for inspiration.

Lower height – nicely styled.  Love the flamingo!

Pretty with the brass details.
