So before you look at the pictures, please realize that this was initally the kitchen at the house I'm renting a room at. Also, I apologize for the not-so-wonderful cell phone picture. It was the only one I have on hand, but I'll try to get a better one up. The landlord likes me, and told me I could partially furnish the house if I found space. As soon as I walked into the kitchen I knew there was potential for another room/area there. Keep in mind I'm not allowed to paint or do much with the walls, which of course keeps this from living up to its full potential. Still, it's a big difference!
Oh, and for the record, here's what I spent on the major pieces:
Green loveseat: free
Herman Miller Repro Chair & Ottoman: free
Curly Q chair: $20
Early 60's, working TV: $10
40's Lamp and Shade: $2
Late 60's Coffee Table: $8
Carpet tiles: $50
Ironically, the carpet is what I spent the most on! It's also missing one square, which I have, and just need to put in...
I got permission to hang something on the wall if I like...any suggestions? Vintage prints? Starburst clock? Atomic age mirror? I know it's not nearly finished (and has already changed a little since this picture was taken), but what do you think so far?
