This victrola has been living in my dining room without a purpose for over a year. You may remember that we won it at an auction, a completely caught up in the moment purchase of which there was no checking in with one's partner. It was all See It. Raise Hand. Win It. Now what.
Maybe we can make it be a jewelry armoire, maybe we can make it additional clothing storage, maybe it could one day make it up to the bedroom....well, i'm tired of waiting for what S is maybe going to do with it. If it's going to live in this here dining room, it should at least serve a purpose.
Oh hey, tablecloths, placemats and napkins! Look how you fit inside those little bitty shelves meant for records.
Now if that ain't upcycling, i don't know what is!
Unrelatedly, Alaska was super amazing. Awesome. Inspiring of awe. I feel blessed to have seen all that we did, from wildlife to the mountain. After going through almost 1100 photos, I have narrowed down the best which I can't wait to show you guys. Soon, my pretties, soon.
Tell me, how's your summer going? Vacations? Yard sale/auctions/thrifty finds?
