I have found some rather nice things lately made of wood, so I decided to devote a post to them.
A Simply Shabby Chic (Rachel Ashwell for Target) frame, a black wooden frame that I stuck some pretty scrapbook paper in, a wooden plate that is a lovely example of pyrography with a painted design, and an useful old file box:
A very nice utiltarian wooden rolling cart:
A mug tree that I spray-painted red and a cute chair, just right for a doll:
A great cubby organizer. I have two that are very similar to this (except they are stained wood, not painted black) that I bought at Pottery Barn a number of years ago. They used to call them a "Postman's Box". The back isn't wood, but that doesn't bother me. It's nice:
And a nice, well-made heavy maple chair. I'm thinking I want to paint it; I haven't quite decided yet:
It's a good solid, sturdy chair.
There's something to be said for being solid and sturdy, don't you think? Even if your "outsides" might need to be spruced up a bit?
