THINGS N STUFF

“pantry” | vintage chair & cushion | paint (duh?) | book stacks | 60s travel case

Last week a few of us from work went to a “Reuse Center” on lunch break and I WAS. IN. HEAVEN. It was a warehouse full of STUFF. The hoarder in me was having a bit of a panick attack. I don’t know how to describe the feeling, you want to push everyone and run up and down the aisles to make sure no one steals any of the goodies. This is often how I feel in thrift stores but this was like that but on crack. Since I don’t have a car, I had a limit on what I could take. I ended up with the wicker chair, pink cushion, travel case from the 60s and a leather camera bag [not pictured] and it all cost me 10$. There was so much I wanted that just would not fit in my tiny studio apartment. I will definitely need to go back again with robber gloves [everything is covered in a thick layer of dust] and comfortable shoes with a few hours to spare… and maybe a U-HAUL…. [kidding… maybe]

Apart de ça, I have “successfully” painted one of my brown bookshelves white [and realized painting furniture is very therapeutic] and will attempt to put it back together tonight *shudder*.

  1. that chair is pretty awesome!

    I like to think of myself as a minimalist, but somewhere inside of me, there’s a suppressed hoarder. I love old treasures. I just get nervous in “cluttered” areas.
