high/low: beadboard book rack.

Sweet friends, we listed this book rack on the Tag Sale last Friday.  I thought it'd sell in no time... but sadly, there was nary an e-mail regarding the piece.  I simply can't stand the idea of it being overlooked... 

So here it is again... 
And here's the Pottery Barn version... $124.

currently coveting: storage and character, all in one

Though Gigi and Daddy no longer live in the house I grew up in, I vividly remember their bedroom.  I remember Gigi's pretty ginger jar lamps, flanking each side of the bed, a pretty little secretary desk paired with an upholstered wingback chair, her collection of perfume bottles, old and new, splayed on her dresser, and of course... her hope chest at the foot of the bed.  Every once in awhile, we'd pull out the contents of the hope chest... each item associated with a sweet, sweet memory... and belonging to a story that either Gigi or my Daddy would share.  The hope chest was home to cherished articles... sort of like a tiny seersucker dress that I insisted on wearing nearly every day the spring of my preschool year.

So when Gigi found this old hope chest, also known as a blanket chest in non-Southern parts of the world, I obviously reveled in the memory of the old hope chest from Gigi's room.  She and and I love the added storage, but more than that we love the history a chest offers up in bedrooms and in cozy den spaces.  

Whether they live at the foot of the bed like this...

Or act as a coffee table sort of like this...

Take a peek at our weekend find... a handmade blanket chest with tons of history... 

And then compare our asking price to the retail price of this one...

Aspen Blanket Chest from Cottage & Bungalow... $2168
via

Seriously?  Over $2000.  You could probably find several for less than $1000, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one for less than $100.

high/low: chinoiserie panels

Compare these GORGEOUS panels... $80

10" x 26"

To these panels... $1500

Now our four panels are obviously much smaller... intended for the wall and not the floor... but we think they would be stunning hanging over a buffet in a dining room.  

Gigi picked them up at an estate sale and she got the whole story... the original owner lived in Japan for a short time and purchased them 50 some years ago.  They are authentic abalone/mother of pearl pieces,  incredibly unique and undoubtedly worth more than our asking price... 

Need them?  E-mail us at single.splash.of.lime@gmail.com.

before and after: bench makeover

We just picked up this little bench... 
It had likely been passed over because... well... just look at it... missing a cushion, in disrepair, and sad on the whole... 

Thankfully, we looked beyond all of that.  We picked up some foam for the cushion, some fabric we had on hand, and a bucket of paint... 

Here's the after... 
Interested in making it your own?

weekend find: winning the flatware lottery

Gigi picked up an amazing set of flatware at an estate sale over the weekend.  Per her research, a 45 piece starter set is $589 at Replacements.  

We quickly sold this 83 piece set for a fraction of that cost.  

The whole thing sort of makes me want to throw a dinner party.
