LIFE ON INSTAGRAM, SOME CHANGES AROUND THE HOUSE

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  It's just been crazy busy especially since the kids are off from school!

I do post frequently on Instagram though(follow me @mybestfriendcraig).  I celebrated my birthday last week and as a gift to myself I bought this burl coffee table from a local consigment store...

(It is not marked but I was told it came all the way from France. The storage underneath is a nice bonus!)

I love me some painted furniture but I am now striving to follow the "one piece of wood furniture per room" rule.   
(It instantly adds warmth to a space)

I've talked about replacing the chippendale bamboo chairs in our breakfast nook before.  My friend Erin(@egigliadesign) grabbed these Louis chairs for me...
(Love!  And no additional work to be done. Yes!
Natural wood in the kitchen, check!)

(oh, and if you are in the Milwaukee area and you are looking for Chippendale bamboo chairs,
email me or leave a message below)


I also scored this pagoda lamp...

brass elephant...


and faux bamboo mirror...
(there's more where this came from.  Next week I'll tell you what I've been really up to lately)


Have a great weekend!

If only I had a trip planned up north I'd come swoop up those chairs ASAP. Why don't I have a private plane?! Hope day 2 of #pottytraining is going well.
