Cooler than A Polar Bear's Toenails

Ok.... so my post has nothing to do with a polar bear's toenails. I was just jamming to some Outkast and since about 80% of my post titles seem to have something to do with rap songs, I thought I'd throw it out there. But I do feel kind of cool today because I'm guest posting for Danielle over at her blog!!

Go check out my thoughts on my favorite fabrics in her Textiles Thursday series!


****************

On another note, look what I found on Craigslist....


NESTING TABLES!!!!!!

I've been wanting them for our living room for-eva, eva (sorry, Outkast still on). I was sooooo excited that I even forgot to haggle the seller down from her $25 offer. Oh well, it's $25. For two adorable wood tables. 

Suhweet.

They're kind of silvery at the moment, so I need to paint. Whatcha think- white? 

Guess who gets to live on the little nesting tables once they're complete? Nana's lamp!


Cuuuuute, right?

Now I've got to get my butt in gear, pick a color and paint!

Pin It!

  5. Girl, you make me laugh with all your rap songs. Glad I am not the only one jamming to rap all the time! Great find in the Nesting Tables! I can never find anything on Craigslist, I am so jealous of everyone's finds! Going to go check out your guest post now!

  6. how much does a polar bear weigh?
    i don't know but it's enough to break the ice.
    :)
    i like the idea of white, but i also would love to see them in a glossy bold color like yellow or green or that dark blue you do so well... or summery dark coral! i am painting a table that color right now for a client and loving it!

  11. Danielle- in that picture, they're against a wall in my breakfast room. But the tables will eventually go along the plantation blind window wall in my living room (in between the slipper chairs).

  12. Gah, I never find stuff on Craigslist .. Maybe I'm not patient enough?! Can't wait to see what you do with those cuties!

  13. You are so funny! I'm totally gonna jam out to some Outkast this morning now ...

    I actually think the tables look lovely in their current state (at least in the photo). Otherwise, I say just stick with your style -- It's wonderful, and it works! Please, please, pretty please don't destroy these pieces with chevron striping or another overdone pattern (like Greek key). I really enjoy those uber-trendy patterns, too, but I think they're best left to accessories or other items that are easily changed out ... Just my two cents, of course! I'm sure whatever you come up with will be fabulous!

  14. I think these pieces could handle some color. And they are technically an accent piece which would still be following your rules, neutral slate with accent color.

    I always lean towards blue, since I think every room should have some blue in it.
