Take a break with a walk in the woods

Last week I was reading the blog of http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2016/01/a-spectacular-show-during-a-bike-ride-egg-run-bike-ride-trails-sunset.html#comment-733080 and it made me realize that taking breaks in nature is much needed when running a business. I woke up super early this morning excited to work on a furniture project redo. While revamping furniture there is always time in-between drying coats of paint. This is a great time to work on laundry for the store, answer emails, and work on the taxes, yet today I was inspired by Donna’s blog about her bike ride and the idea of being outside in nature enjoying a few minutes of fresh air called out to me. Yes, it was a bit chilly on this rare cold morning in Florida, but I was able to take a break while paint was drying and go outside into the woods that I love and take a nature walk. Just 30 minutes of walking and taking in the beauty of the woods down towards the lake and back was just what I needed. I am very grateful for this business that I love, and this beautiful city Tallahassee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A succulent teacup garden

We love vintage teacups. When we rescue them at tag sales and estate sales we can not wait to drink our afternoon tea from them. After a while we have quite the collection and have decided why not use them for more than just tea. There is a rare cold snap in Florida right now and we wanted to bring part of our garden inside. So a little succulent garden began by using our unique teacups to plant them in. [Even faux plants work!] Succulent teacup gardens are a great way to put to use those teacups with chips in them. These also make great living decor at weddings and other events, or as a thoughtful gift.  So the next time you are near Tallahassee, Florida stop by The Other Side Vintage and check out our unique teacups.

Before & After 1958 chest of drawers

We love coming across vintage real wood treasures that have lost their sass due to wear and neglect.  This beauty had wire tied where the handles should had been and the top was mangled from wear and tear. We did not find a maker’s mark but we did find a stamp dated January 1958 on the bottom of one of the drawers.  This is all wood, tongue and groove drawers and lovely as can be now that it has been revamped by one of our local artists.  Sanded down and revamped with a lovely custom color of barely blue hand made chalk paint and then sealed with several coats of matte sealant.  Vintage handles are the original handles that we were lucky to find inside the chest of drawers.
