I Love This!!!


Marci said "um" when I bought this...I am sure she had thoughts like..."oh my, she has lost it...and she is my business partner...what do I do"....


I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!!!!


I will admit now though...it is on the verge of being a little too shabby for me...ok...there...I said it...I love the shabby, ratty, rusted look...I really do, but, hum.....is this tooooo shabby? I cannot decide. On one hand I love that it is all original but then could it really work in a room? Would I ruin it if I ripped all the original fabric off and replaced it? A few more pics to get the 'realness' of the shabby.




Ok, so here is the question...WWYD...What Would You Do??? Leave it alone or try to doll it up?

Honestly...It may never make it into the Cottage....It may just have to go home with me!!! I will let you know...
