Texas trip

I'm long over due to visit my best friend Katie in Texas. She's about to have her second, a little girl and her husband is away for training. I'll be in the Fort Hood area and am dying to get to some good antique and junk stores. Any good advice on where to go? I hope to find a double iron street sign like this one from Lori Miller...

I saw one at the flea market in Canton and continue to KICK myself for not getting it. I want to put it on top of my new armoire I got to replace the black console I just sold. It has some gorgeous cream chipping paint but there's just not enough to appease me. I think I'm going to paint it a bluish grey called contemplation. What do you guys think? (I still have to patch the wall by the armoire and do a little touch up paint)


  1. I love the idea of painting the armoir grey! I think it would look devine!

    P.S. Why not make a double street sign like the one you found? Just a thought!

  2. I think we're the bomb diggity for putting that thing together. Without instructions. From Scratch. And yes, I will continue saying that for years.
