Antique Mirror Again

I think I’ve already done a post about my love for antique mirror.  But I found some more pretty pictures to share with you.  Also, I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of this Foxed mirror cocktail table to arrive from West Elm:

They told me that it would arrive at the end of February.  And then I got an email from West Elm saying the backorder was pushed back until the end of April.  I’m starting to wonder if I’ll ever get it :(  I have not had a coffee table in my apartment.  Ever. I’ve only lived in it for 8.5 months).  I have been focusing on trying to be smart and waiting for the right piece.  And I thought I found it.  So please, West Elm, send me my table!

Needless to say it is no longer available even for backorder (what a shame!).  I placed the order in February when it was on sale.  However, the Foxed mirror side table is still available and just as pretty!

New Runner and Good As New Chair

I finally got a runner for the long hallway in my apartment. I’m sure the people who live in the unit below me are grateful. What do y’all think? Black & white + Chevron = Love it! I got it from one of our vendors, but West Elm and Urban Outfitters have similar options.

I also wanted to share the miraculous restoration of a very broken chair. One of my brother’s friends leaned back in one of the dining chairs at my parents cabin and this happened:

But I took it to the Touch Up Guy here in Atlanta and he literally made it good as new! You can’t even tell it was ever broken. Impressive, isn’t it? He even put steel rods in it. Pretty much good as new:

Map is Hung!

So, I finally hung my “vintage” Chattanooga map!  It only took over 3 months to decide where to hang it… I think I’m getting better at making decisions quickly ;)

I also hung another piece of art that I got for Christmas.  It is the cutest print of a bee done by Chattanooga artist Liz Nichols.  Her art is amazing – you must check it out! Her website doesn’t display much of it, but you can check out her pinterest board (I want everything).  AND it is available through Sophie’s in Chattanooga.  Sophie’s is probably my favorite store in Chattanooga… I could go on forever about what a cute shop it is, but that deserves a post of it’s own :) … What do you think?

Hicks is Hung!

My Hicks pendant is hung! I can’t stop looking at it. It’s just perfect. I took some pictures to share, of course. But first I wanted to show a before picture. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture before the old fixture was removed (too much excitement). BUT, I did find an old picture with the old fixture in it. Please know that this picture was taken literally right after I moved in and it in no way reflects how my apartment looks on a regular basis. The old fixture is the little white spotlight in the upper left corner over the sink.

Before:

And here is the old fixture after the electrician took it down:

And the Hicks pendant! (this is what my apartment actually looks like on a regular basis)
