I love a nice narrow frame and always keep my eyes open for them, both old and new versions. Michael’s Arts & Crafts and similar stores have a pretty good selection but you just never see the skinny ones.
These are not in my booth but are for sale in Yellow Finch. Love that they’re frayed and disheveled. All of these things go together, don’t ya think? That’s a room right there…..just add a few chairs, a sofa, maybe a soft leather chair.
I spent the day yesterday painting and repairing a few new things for the booth. The chairs will get a wash and linen seat, and I’ll bet they’ll look downright Swedish when they’re done. YUUUUUMMM. There’s really nothing better than a dulled down white with a little distress and wax. It creates such a nice neutral backdrop and doesn’t look babyish like some shabby chic whites. I try to keep S-W-E-D-I-S-H in mind for my whites.
Oh well, though I’m not as cool as Jim I do know a good thing when I see it. I just had to try/STEAL his idea for this little bench. Can’t wait to add the stain and a little trim to it. Hmmm, it’s a little too girly to call it the Jim bench. Maybe the Collier Bench. Yes, that’s the ticket!
