I have always LOVED hand-me-downs. Being the youngest in my family, I was always the lucky recipient of all of the hand-me-downs. I remember telling my sister that certain things were really looking like they were getting too small for her and that it may just be time to kick it on down to me! : ) Upon moving into our house - I became the recipient of even more hand-me-downs.....FURNITURE! My grandparents have very eclectic taste in furniture. They have a strong appreciation for both mid-century modern and antiques. Our house (and my taste) are more along the lines of traditional so I was THRILLED to take in the antiques. Some of them have been stored in our garage for the last couple of months until I could figure out what to do with them. The other day I decided to bring this guy out of hiding!
I added a nautical painting, a white lantern, my mom brought over some festive gourds and VOILA! Entry done!
I also convinced my mom to make me a white linen mini runner with a small burlap runner over the top. Here's a close up (sorry for the blurry-ness. I'm still trying to figure out my camera!)


  1. Love It! Can Sarah make me a runner too???/

  2. That's a great piece and perfect for that spot. I love watching the evolution of the house!
