I have some vintage-like furniture hanging out around our house, and I’m thinking it could make itself useful at our wedding. Like this!
Now, this furniture happens to be a hodgepodge of colors, so I guess I need to decide if we’re gonna paint it or just leave it as is. I started repainting one of these pieces years ago, by removing the knobs and sanding it down. But then I got tired and had to go lie on the couch and eat some Velveeta shells & cheese and watch Harry Potter. Now three years later, it looks like this:
This was my grandpa’s dresser, and is currently in our kitchen. It clearly needs to be repainted, right? I think it’d look awesome as our cake and brownie buffet table!
This could be our guest book table”¦
This could be a bench by our fireplace”¦
And this could be the table that holds our programs, outside by our ceremony site.
Our venue is kind of dark itself, with the wood barn-y thing going on, but the look we are going for is bright and airy and festive and awesome. So I was thinking about painting them white, and using this fabric as a runner.
You know, without Smizza. Also, this is the same fabric I used to make our button napkin rings.
And, I got these orange knobs on sale and used my 15% Anthropologie birthday discount coupon. I may have bought some clothes too. Why though, is the birthday coupon only 15%? That’s lame. Do you hear me Anthro? 20% is a real deal…15% is just meh.
