Two great things happened this weekend. The first is that I picked up all of these great pieces of furniture.

Faux bamboo dining table with 2 leaves. I ended up selling my black pedestal table AND chairs from my eat-in kitchen (not the Bentwood ones) on Craigslist this weekend & plan on refinishing this one to take its place. I love the versatility the leaves provide–perfect for those times when I have extra company!

Not your run-of-the-mill Ginger Jar lamps, this is a large scaled pair with brass bases for a distinctly Asian flair. Will look amazing once sprayed.
This faux bamboo buffet looks like it may have been a mate to the table and has great storage behind the doors. It’s solid, heavy, and I actually like the hardware (if you didn’t get the hint, I’m obsessed with faux bamboo!). Might use it as a buffet, might not. 
A classic, easy to refinish piece that I plan on using as a TV console in my living room. The inlay makes me excited. 
And I found these things for my sister’s place: 
Rolled arm bench
A pair of American by Martensville mid-century nightstands/end tables for her living room. 

Clearly I’ve been busy.

The second great thing that happened is that I finally got my air condition repaired after being broken for about 4 weeks. All of you Atlanta folks know that we’ve been in a bit of a heat wave, so you can imagine what it’s been like for me over here. About 3 weeks in I had myself psyched out that it wasnt’ that bad, but I sure am thankful that it’s back working now. I’m finally in the mood to start painting, so I’m looking forward to getting some of these projects knocked out over the coming weeks.

Who else found some treasures over the weekend??

    Ooo bless your heart! I live in ATL also, and last summer we found ourselves like you – without airconditioning. It seemed like it went out just in time for the serious heat. lol I can laugh now, but it was no fun for the week we went w/o air.

    A/C is a blessing ain’t it?!! Glad you’ve got yours back and love the faux bamboo furniture!

    First off, I really love your blog!
    I really know how it feels to be without a/c, because I stayed with my mom last summer and the a/c was out the ENTIRE summer. Lol. It’s very funny now we reminisce about it. The furniture that you picked up is great, I really love bamboo and faux bamboo furniture. I can’t wait to see what you make of these finds.

    Oh my gosh, Dayka, I can’t believe you were without air conditioning for a month. Mine was out for a day and I thought I would die! You are a much better woman than me!

    I love all the pieces that you found. Can’t wait to see what you do with them!

    Enjoy the cool air!
