I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!!

I have making some updates in the library….just wanted to share the progress….I have found some really great deals….

These chairs were in perfect condition…they just need a little white wash on the wood—found the set for $120 on consignment :)

Found 2 of these at Homegoods….perfect for keeping a desk tidy ….

The ottoman is almost done…just need to sew the skirt on the bottom. I am making the slipcover out of white denim fabric…

The bookshelves are cleaned up and I am still de-cluttering. I love the artwork hanging from one of the shelves.

It is coming together…slowly but surely.
Paint color is Behr Tawny Birch.

This was a find at a local Architectual savage place….unsure what it is exactly. It meant something to us because my husbands family business is asphalt and concrete. The tag in the center says Lou. Asphalt .

The owner of the shop says that is was from the 1910’s…and was pulled out of the building where Louisville Asphalt operated. It is a great conversation piece….even if we have no clue what it is!
