Jordan and I took a little antiquing adventure over the weekend and boy did we find some really great stuff. We loaded the truck with old books, vintage pots, old doors, an old farm table (actually we had to leave that one behind for pick up at a later date – we ran out of room. Next time we will take a trailer. 😉 ), an old medicine cabinet, baskets, random little treasures, and one really awesome, completely one of a kind, wood feeding trough/tray.
I haven’t decided just what I’m going to do with the trough yet, so you’ll have to wait to hear me gush about all of its rusty hardware – chippy white paint – chewed up wood – awesomeness for another day. But it really is one of my favorite finds to date.
I say that about all my treasures, but I really mean it this time. 😉
We also came home with this cute and quirky Captain’s Chair.
This little chair has all sorts of odd going on with it – and so of course I couldn’t love it more.
It’s missing a few rungs and spindles (one that is replaced by a strange and super long metal rod?), sits a bit unevenly, has a perfectly imperfect rustic finish, and other random cracks and marks and dings that I always find so appealing in a piece.
I simply couldn’t pass it up.
I’m not really sure just where and/or what I’m going to do with this quirky little chair, but for now I’m trying it out in the living room, next to the fireplace.
I have moments when I walk into the room and really love it there…
And then I have moments when I walk into the room and I’m not so sure…
What do you think?
Should it stay?
Or should it go?
