New Old Armoire

Sorry I disappeared like that. This has been a busy week. Plus, I've had a little trouble sleeping lately so I've been napping when Elon naps and that means no time to sit in the office and blog! But I've been eagerly anticipating showing you all my new old armoire I got off of Craig's List. It matches my shabby-chic-spin-off-of-french-provencial-while-not-being-too-formal-somewhat-cottagey look. There are other pictures of my decorating style under the decorating link in the sidebar. Currently, I'm trying to go from a little less shabby to a little more chic. To "achieve" the shabby chic look well, you really need some interesting architecture in the house, which is something the home I am renting, lacks. I do the best I can with what I have, though, and continue to look for "the house" full of all the character I can dream of!

It is really a wardrobe armoire, but part of my fun in decorating is using furniture in unexpected/creative ways. So, this wardrobe armoire is in my living room and hold my tv, dvd player, sound system, movies, camera equiptment, and will soon have a shelf of baskets in which to stow Elon's toys. I know this old style isn't for everyone, but I love it! And only$150 baby!
