I got this beauty though, for free, from Craigslist yesterday and I DIE! I had to drive about 30 mins outside the city to get it and was floored by the details (diamond cut out) on the back. It is a little rickety but nothing some Gorilla glue and new screws can't fix!
For some reason I picture a throne whenever I look at it so jewel tones and golds were my goal. I browsed the Internet looking for inspiration on how I wanted to re-vamp it and found it on the Urban Outfitters website! Yup, the cover of Jay-Z's new book, Decoded, and fell in love. It's crisp, it's metallic and throne-esque, no? Definitely found my inspiration.
After my two showings tomorrow I'm going to tackle this and the new lining of a shelf I've had for a while, (another free score on Craigslist...yes!) Editor's note: If I ever find out who "Craig" is, I want to marry him and that list of his. Just sayin....
