My Mom once told me "you never met a chair I didn't like". Haha, she's so funny but SO right! I also have a hard time letting go of them (apparently). What would I ever do without my attic? This is the "Furniture Department" in my attic.
One thing I wish my attic had would be taller ceilings. We can't stand up there, so
its a real back breaker after a while. So that must be why its usually such a mess (lol). I made that doll by the way, many many moons ago!
So I'll let you in on a secret... I also never met a "lamp" I didn't like. Those get changed out throughout the years in my home, but I rarely part with one unless its broken. This is only part of the "Lighting Department" in my attic.
Today I was up there looking for lamp parts, a comforter, and I can't even remember what else(?) I made so many trips up there and found some great items to use in my "someday very soon" guest room (and other rooms) by scrounging through my "Drapery Department". The curtain above has a lovely smocked top and the prettiest pastel fabric. I picked these custom curtains up years ago at a yardsale in my neighborhood. Custom made and beautifully so I couldn't pass them up for such a small pricetag (even though I could have made them myself). Maybe I will take them apart and turn them into panels for my "soon-to-be" guest room.
Here is another panel I picked up in my yardsale travels. Its a Pottery Barn Kids, Audrey Chenille Polka Dot Panel also from my "exclusive attic collection" (lol). I'm trying it out in my kitchen just for fun. This would be perfect in my "someday-soon" guest room if it only had a partner :-( I may get creative and turn it into a valance or pillows just so I can use it there! I love it with the newly painted wall in my kitchen (I used leftover paint from about 6 years ago).
I hope this post comes out okay "visually". I'm posting from my phone for a change. The only other time I did that the pictures looked grainy...
