I've been on the prowl for a small curiosities shelf for many years. I have a set of hand painted zodiac animals that are made out of silk worm cocoons and a set of eight carved Chinese horses. And then a bunch of little odds and ends. Anyway, I finally figured out that I could use those printer type drawers that are all over the place. I went out and picked this one up. Forgive the poor quality of the photo.
Neat. So I need to clean it up and put on some mounting hardware and this thing will be ready for treasures.
While at the shop buying this one, I also happened upon an umbrella stand, which has also been on my list of things for the house for a number of years. This one is metal and mod. Very fun:
I desperately want to spray paint it some funky colors. Blue? Yellow?
Maybe I can just add a finial gem for pizzazz. The umbrella is a kid umbrella that I picked up at the thrift store.
She loves it! I was sick of her obsession with the big umbrellas, so this was found just in time for spring!
