This will go down on my list of “desperation dinners” joining Blue Runners with Rice and Sausage from the actual book Desperation Dinners. I always keep chickpeas and pasta in the cabinet so all I needed to make this dish was kale and sausage…btw…I used Chorizo.
A long while back I blogged about bar carts… one that I couldn’t afford and one that I was sure I would never build. It’s not that I have a lot of booze but displaying it on a bookshelf just wasn’t working for me.
Somewhere along the way…either from one of my decorating magazines or via Pinterest, I came across the idea of upcycling a baby changing table into a bar cart.
And so it goes… I found a baby changing table in great shape and got to sanding and spray painting. I would advise doing a bit of light sanding and buying the spray paint that has the primer and finishing off with a clear sealant.
I love my little bar cart, I doubt I’ll ever put wheels on it and I’m okay with that.
I’ve been in that mood to switch things up, do a bit of spring refreshing and although I’m not planning to paint this is just gorgeous and kind of makes me want to…check out the rest of this post from The LuxPad.
I must be getting old because lately I’ve been obsessed with collecting vintage items like Pyrex and Milk Glass.
I’m wild-eyed at this stage, grabbing every vase that I come across often for next to nothing. I know that milk glass had a lot of manufacturers and not all of them had visible markings but a couple of pieces have markings such as CLG Company and E.G. Brody. In addition to vases I’ve also found other items such as a creamer and a couple of candy dishes and a plate or two. I’m still searching for that hen candy dish that held our Christmas treats as I was growing up. I think I inherited that hen and gave it away during a move not really knowing years later that I would start to collect milk glass.
