Amber and Armoires

Since childhood I have aways LOVED big, old furniture. I am a huge fan of anything that can tell a story or hide a mess just by simply closing doors. My mom had a great big antique Armoire in our great room when I was a kid and it was the ULTIMATE hiding spot. In fact it is so large I could probably still fit in it comfortably today. The idea of a great big free-standing closet has always been appealing to me. Matt and I often discuss the idea of purchasing an armoire. Well, I discuss it in great detail and Matt just smiles and nods (bless his heart). I think once we get one and he sees how useful it is for hiding messes and how much extra storage it provides he may like it more than what he thinks. I found this lovely one at The Pottery Barn & I fell in love with it. It's not old but it looks old (I like the distressed, painted look). I don't think we will be making such a large purchase until we have a more permanent place of residence, but rest assured I will be dreaming about the day.

I also found this adorable table and chairs (I had painted my chairs different colors long before I saw this picture). This was definitely more of the look I was going for. Instead, I ended up with chairs that look like legos, in the cave that is our apartment.
