in the two years since we decided to build, i have been collecting things for the new house. we're lucky enough to have a barn on the property to store things in... it makes it easier to avoid direct eye contact with my vintage hoard. but as i was making on of my rounds, patting random things and picturing where they might end up, i thought i would share with you the bald reality. frightening and exciting isn't it?
- the huge industrial spotlights - there are three of them - will hang over our stairway.
- the rotating hardware bins will end up in the mudroom gathering shoes and leashes and random flotsam. those were snagged by patrick from our local hardware store for free!
- patrick also managed to get the flat files (i think there may be seven sections of them) tossed in for free with another deal. the boy knows how to bargain.
- the wood pegs were saved from our barn beams to be reused as a coat rack in the entry way.
- i may have to admit there are in fact, three drafting tables stored away, and i don't know where any of them are going. i believe patrick has claimed the largest for his office.
- the school house lighting fixtures will hang in the kitchen and over the dining room table.
- and i'm sure the factory shelves will find a home in my studio holding fabric.
not shown are any number of mid century chairs, a real slate chalkboard, a postal sorting cabinet and a card catalog, a few easels, orchard ladders and any number of smaller items i've put away, just in case. also, there's a cement donkey. because every home needs a donkey?
there you have it... i'm a hoarder. let's not even get into the fabric stash, okay?
