A wonderful quote...

that I found on apartmenttherapy...

William Morris in 1882: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or consider to be beautiful”.

Amen!

Lately, if I can't do double duty with an item or use it in multiple places within the house, then I'm not interested!  And, of course, every find has to be beautiful!

Here is my latest purchase...a mid century dresser that we plan to use as an entertainment center in the living room.  I found this beauty at the ReUse Center - one of my favorite haunts!  It was a steal at $55!




Our idea is to temporarily place the flat screen on top, but down the road install overhead.  We'll see how the DVD, Dish box, and VCR (yes, we still have one hooked up!) will fit.  It's possible that we may take out a few of the drawers on the left and place the componets inside.  For now, we will keep it au natural and see how it looks in the space.  If too dark, a paint job may be in our near future! 

This piece fits my idea of double duty as it has 9 drawers that can be used for storage...something that is hard to find at LaNa!

More photos to come soon...
