My kitchen is complete – come check it out!

One of the reasons I fell in love with my new house was because the kitchen was so uniquely vintage and adorable.  We’ve lived here for 3.5 weeks had have most of the rooms done, but my kitchen is the first to be 100% complete.  I’m very proud of how it turned out!

I can’t stop messing with my dining room…

Ever since we got the new table and then I bought the new radios, I just keep going back into my dining room and rearranging things.  I did it again today and I think I’m finally done (for now.)  I was keeping an old radio upstairs that needs restoration but I decided to finally bring it down, in all it’s shabby chic glory, to keep with my other radios.  I polished up and rearranged things that were already in the room.  I also did some research on it – it’s a Philco Model 38 Lowboy (because it has legs.)  My best guestimate is that it is from 1933-34.  It’s missing the dial and knobs and I’d like to find replacements and have it refinished.
