Today I am participating in my first Metamorphosis Monday. Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch
for hosting this.
Since we have only lived in our house 2 1/2 yrs. I haven't done a whole lot of changing things yet...just adding to the bareness. This is a picture of our downstairs bar/kitchen while it was under construction.
The picture below was taken at the model home while under construction. We added a large sink in the middle. This plan had a small bar sink on the other side. I decided the sink the builder was putting in was just too tiny. You will see pictures further down.
Here is the bar after we moved in and finally got it decorated this past fall. Pretend with me that the old refrigerator we are using is painted black, okay? ;) ~someday~ Notice the figurine to the left of the refrigerator.
His name is I.W. Harper, an old whiskey decantur I found at an antique store. I just LOVE him. When I first spotted him, he was priced around $30. I liked him but didn't really want to spend that much money on him. We didn't have the bar fixed up yet, so I walked on by. It was one of those things that never totally left my mind. Around nine months later I was back in the store and decided it would be fun to have, but it was gone. :( While browsing this large antique store I realized they had a basement! What do you suppose was down there waiting for me, but Mr. I.W. Harper on the clearance for $15!! I grabbed him up fast. His cane was missing so I made one out of a piece of bendable wire that I sprayed copper. These antique billiard balls sit on the counter. Mr. Brown Socks found these for me. While we are pretending that the refrigerator is black, let's also pretend the walls are painted something other than khaki ~someday~
