You Can Come In, But You Can't Sit Down

Ho hum. Flat is bland. Flat is dull. Flat is boring (just look at my bust line!).
My remedy for boring is "to fluff". Fluff is eye-catching. Fluff is details. Fluff is interesting. So I fluffed a door at the shop.
We had a flat boring door at the end of a hallway which Susan wanted to jazz up a little. So I gave it a little depth with paint.

Then we wanted to shine a little light on the subject, so I painted a chandelier.

Never one to stop fluffing if no one's around to stop me, I painted a floor on the door to match
the floor at the other end of the hall. (You can see part of that boring door at the end of the hall in this photo).
Now it looks like we're getting somewhere. But I'm getting a little tired of sitting on my folded legs.
It's time to take a seat in this private little alcove

admire the newly polished marbled floor and wonder what else I can fluff?
(Wish I could fluff my bust line this easily!)

Past Due Tuesday ~ Star Quality

Ok, so I am taking liberties with the percentage of "vintage" in this item. Some of it IS vintage--the image and perhaps the convex glass, mirror and ferns. But having just gone here, I had to share this! (It was made by Wendy Addison). I've had it for about 2 years and have it hanging on an oar in my seaside powder room where I can admire it everyday.

Now it's your turn! Share your love of vintage items every Tuesday at the ROOMIES blog!
