I recently bought this little brass guy at a thrift store for $2.50. I knew immediately when I saw it that it would be awesome spraypainted black, with a plant in it, so I did just that.

I had been eyeing some cool ones online, but they were $$$$$. I even posted about them a while back. Anyway, I'm super happy with how my little vintage spraypainted wire plant holder turned out:

I guess I could use a larger terra cotta pot, but I already had this one, so I just stuck it in there. If I used a white one, it'd look a lot like my inspiration planter, but I'm digging terra cotta right now, honestly.

The fabric scrap on my recently thrifted MCM chair is a ticking stripe fabric I actually also found at another thrift store this summer. I'm thinking of having the chair reupholstered in this fabric, what do you guys think?!

I really like the black and white stripes with the wooden legs. Hmmm...

  1. I have used ticking on French Provincial chairs, kitchen cafe curtains and currently have a ticking bed skirt. I find it to be so versatile and sturdy as upholstery plus blends with almost any decor style. Do it!

    1. I'm loving it in there so far... wondering if I should wait until my couch gets here, since its gray, and the black and white ticking stripe gives off an almost gray feel? Don't want them to clash!

    2. Chair will be right next to couch? Then probably best to wait just to be sure. Then again the gray couch could make the black stripe look blacker or you could move the chair across the room. Don't you just love the plotting and scheming?!

  2. Cute! That chair would look great in the stripe!

  3. k so i know you want me to notice the amazing planter and the furniture... but i want those shoes so bad!! where did you get them?
    oh please tell me wehre you got them
