my {beautiful} white legs

what? did you think this was a post about my favorite spray tanners?

quite the contrary!

several people have e-mailed me asking just what those things are on top of the armoire in our bedroom.

well, they're beautiful, old chair legs. i found them on a sunday junkin' trip in georgia. the whole box was just $10.

to make the lovely armoire topper, i simply bought them, spray painted them cream, sanded to rough them up and placed them in a vintage wire letter basket.

after, close up:

don't you just love it when things find you?

Everyone who is seeing this at Better After is saying,"now why didn't I think of that?"

Genius, wonderful use of your creative mind!

What color is your bedroom? I saw your room on RMS but can't find the room again and can't remember the room color. Would love to know! Thanks
