Weekend Review

I had such a wonderful time on Saturday with my good friend Stori! We decided that it was about time that we did some exploring of the Mandeville, Covington area here in Louisiana.
Stori had been wanting to get some new furniture f
or her dining room so that led us to do some furniture shopping at some AMAZING stores in the area. Most of the places that we went to were the type that carried local artists' pieces and/or unique finds that you can't get anywhere else.
I have to say, that I am extremel
y inspired to bring out my creative side and get into furniture refinishing. It would be so much fun! I have done some refinishing on wood pieces in the past, so that would not be a problem for me, but when it come to upholstery, I would definitely need some direction!
I actually went to Goodwill today to see what they had. There was a wing back chair there for only $60 but it needed a full overhaul! Again, as far as upholstery goes, I would need someone who knows what they are doing to give me some pointers before I tackled that kind of project. Can any of you help??
Anyways, here are some pictures of the set that Stori
found for her house. She got the dining room table, 2 white chairs and 2 blue chairs, and a blue bench to go on the other side of the table. I absolutely LOVE it and can not wait to come visit it when she gets it all up in her house!
This is what she has already bought:

I think this one would be cool as their TV stand:

This one could go in their entryway:

Either 2 of these Side Tables for by the sofa:


I found this chair, but I dont think it will pass Jeff's approval, lol:
