Farm Love

Although we don't reside on a farm.... yet,
it doesn't stop me from giving our
home a farm feel on the inside.
I love the old weather worn look
of wood and the cozy hues of brown.
Although Black Rooster Cottage (the business)
is predominately Black,
I use Burlap to my advantage to incorporate
the Farmhouse feel.
I love the contrast.

My $5 desk... the top was given to me from a very
sweet friend (it was a coffee table) and we bought
a beat up table at an Estate Sale for $5 (for the legs).
My new wonderful workstation in the front living room.
I love having the window there.
I love the mixed wood color. I lightly sanded the top just
to remove any loose pieces and splinters.
Now, I just need to wax.
I love the faded charm.
LOVE this dresser which was a Goodwill find.
At $60, it was a steal. Some wood glue and
some elbow grease is all she needed.
The previous owners even put the original
pulls in the drawer. The ones shown here
are not them. The others are so ornate.
On the to-do list.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend of
 Treasure Hunting!!
I'm headed to Vignettes tomorrow
with the girls!
Photos to come next week!
xo, Amber

Those little cowboy boots are an almost dead ringer to my first pair. I still have them and treasure them. I wore them some 60+ years ago. I'll have to post them one of these days.
Your blog is outstanding and that dresser is gorgeous!
Have a great weekend, Connie :)

Oh Amber I totally love that desk!
And the dresser too!
I know for sure that Cheyenne will give a lot of oooohs and aaaahs for all the horsey stuff... (Neigh ;)

I wish you a wonderful weekend.
I will be hitting my local thrift store this afternoon.
I have something on my "got to have list" Last week I missed out on it by 15 min. I saw someone drive off with it! Bully for me!
