Kansas City, Kansas City here I come…

No, I’m not moving to Kansas City, I was just singing the song. I will remain in good ol’ Wichita. Stop being jealous.

One weekend, my family took our last trip before I became a married woman to Kansas City. We shopped and shopped and shopped… and found the most amazing deals… with a little bitty car and no way to get them home (of course). One thing I did get home was this fabulous entry piece! With a little lovin’ it became one of my favorite things in this house.

I found this Baker furniture chest at River City Trading – an out-of-this-world antique mall by downtown Kansas City.

Here is the before…

And after a thick coat of Navy… and hand silver leafing….

First we painted the sides..

then added the lamps…

My “catch” all bowl… (ok, ok, It’s a glorified dog bowl. But it’s perfect for keys, right inside the door!)

Lastly, a few twigs just for the time being until I find the most perfect artwork!

Good morning blogeristas! Happy hump day! I have a good one for you today, and would just like to in invite you over for breakfast. Coffee or tea?

Anywhoo.. This moment has been long awaited. My kitchen table breakfast nook is ready for it’s close up.

This ah-mazing table and bamboo chair ‘get-up’ was found on craigslist in Tulsa, OK.

Sorry for the blurry photo, CL pics aren’t the highest of quality sometimes.

Here is the table before the make-over.

And the chair.

And now, I pronounce you a fully restored Drexel bamboo table and chair couple.

A view from the top.

The chair by herself.

Give me a turn, that’s it. Work it Drexel.

To show the beautiful top.

Don’t forget the masterwork on the legs.

And the X in the middle. Gosh you are stunning table!

You all are invited over for breakfast anytime. Thanks for joining me. Have a great day.
