Every time I go visit my parents I have to stop by our local thrift store. My favorite finds are all from here, and I even saw these old neoclassical glasses and ice bucket on One Kings Lane website for $450 (I bought the whole set for $10!) — I recently stopped by to see what gems were to be found and ended up getting two pretty unique pieces of art ($10 for both!). I originally wanted to place them on either side of the bed in a “his” and “hers” fashion but they match my kitchen area too perfectly.
“His”“Hers”I love frames. I love that these were on perfectly pristine linen mats. But I hated the gold and white linen frames, they just don’t work for my space. I originally tried to turn them champagne with some silver rub n’buff cream but it didn’t look right. So I decided contrast might be the way to go. Since my family has a frame shop it is pretty easy to disassemble pieces and put them back together again. I just took the frames off, spray painted them black, and popped them back in. Very simple fix but I think they look much better. I’ve made a home for them in my kitchen, in between a photo I took of our trip to Barcelona (I was actually sick with a migraine that night and pouring myself water into that glass, but I pretend it was white wine) — I love that picture because we were staying at this amazing hotel (hotel Florida) on the hills above Barcelona and you can see the entire city behind the glass. I also collect corks from every bottle of wine we drink, all of those were from our trip to Spain and France in 2010. Added a nice border to the photo and works well in our wine-loving kitchen!
