Global Finds

by Avant C

We remodeled our place just about a year ago. We were really excited when it was finally finished, but we were also trying to wrap our heads around  how we were going to decorate it. Our budget was basically nonexistent, so we decided to start with what we already had. These two pieces are some of my favorites.  The library card catalog was given to us by my co-worker, and I love how the worn unevenness of the varnish gives it character. The globe was discovered by Jerianne at a garage sale, and the magnifying glass sitting by the globe was a gift from Jerianne’s mom. These unique pieces feel like old friends and are also interactive. We enjoy watching guests sneaking a peak inside the drawers, or picking up the magnifying glass to get a closer look at the countries on the globe.-cc
