The Vintage Dentist Table and Cinderella

So I am having some challenges decorating the new Pagoda.
I must keep it clean and chic,but I must also insert my witty winks(why yes that is a memory stick dangling from my groovy turntable!).

How about a vintage dentist table on wheels as a lamp stand?

At under 30 bux I felt it was a pretty decent deal.Unfortunately the rust was a bit of a buzz kill.

I am sure there are those of you who adore a weathered patina,but its just not my bag.

Who knew all that was needed was a few strips of sand paper and a whole LOT of elbow grease? Bet I burned through a few calories on that project.Ofcourse now I need a manicure.

....and here is lovely Crooked Halo learning to be a proper Disney Princess.

....and Mommy 15 yrs prior doing the NOT so Disney version.This weekend is Les Mis!

Here is a sneak peek on whats up next on the decorating To do list. It has been fun finding new pieces to eclecticize the new pad!

the new pad is looking rad. Love the detist table. My mom (who lives up in McKinney) just got a vintage dentist spit bowl thing that she is making into a water feature for her yard. That is so funny you thrifted the same flower children. Hope they find a place in your new casa. You asked me about big art once. My sister uses an overhead projector to make murals and large paintings. you might give that a whirl.

I love what it looks like, so cool, it's retro and modern, very sleek looking. Nice to see the family talent in your photos, very touching.

Thumbs up on that dentist's table. I agree with not being fond of rust. Patina or not, it's still rust.
