Vintage Style


I was on a quest one day at the thrift store. I was picking up all sorts of cheap old junk. I love cheap old junk that can be glorified. I found this old travel chest for $3!! What a deal. It even came with a smell of old man medicine. What a great addition huh? HAHA. So here is the before picture:



And here is the after!! I think I really like it. I love the colors. It's one of my favorite color combos.

One more thing I wanted to share. I found this blog somehow one day and am in LOVE with it. It's this guy that just cooks out of his home and gives out the recipes. The food is AMAZING!! If you need a good recipe for the holidays, go here and look at all his yummy recipes. He even posts a picture with every one of them. It makes my mouth water every time I read it. It's called Closet Cooking. Check it out.
