I've been going to Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesday parties and she mentioned that her booth at Cotton City Antiques would be having some deep discounts over the weekend. My address may say FL, but anyone who has been to Pensacola knows this is really LA -- Lower Alabama. So, Tiane, Baby Girlie and I set out for a fun day of junque shopping. True, we passed 14 other antique stores along the way, but we were women on a mission.

We were also charmed by Coastal Charm Interiors -- hers is the first booth on the left when you enter. She has all the coastal, industrial, chippy, perfectly imperfect stuff I just love. We went around the huge space about 4 times. I only had to call Baby by her first and second name about 4,000 times. The ladies there were so kind and helpful and we SCORED!

Tiane is planning a bar to go in her family room. That room is right off the main living room and opens to the deck & pool. We found a gorgeous, old, lit, curio cabinet with beveled, leaded glass sides & doors. It will mount nicely on the wall with a couple of french cleats. I can't wait to see her glassware sparkling in there.
Then we found 3 adorable bar stools. Baby made sure that they spin - check. They have a silver rail around the bottom for a foot rest. The legs have a bamboo detail that is going to be so precious when we paint them out. I promise I'll have pictures soon, we'll do a whole post about sanding, painting & installation.
I had a bit of a rush crush on this vintage green chair. However, it was right by the front door. Apparently, I am the girl on "Say Yes to the Dress" who wants to try on more dresses. But even after the forth lap, this chair was still dark and dreamy and comfy and ... well.. perfect. It was also 50% off. Now Mardis Gras is officially my favorite holiday. Bring on the king cake!
When I got it home I realized that it perfectly matches some Asian inspired pottery pieces I already had. Dontcha just love when that happens?
Please enjoy your Fat Tuesday and your shopping days that don't even need a holiday. I hope you find the perfect piece to make your place more visit ready.
