The Mod Squad

My search for the perfect mid century coffee table has me jonesin for some more mid century in my life! I seem to love rooms with just a touch or two of it here and there. Really adds character and a bit of simplistic and classic elements to a room.

The bench by the window is amazing!

Pictures like this make me wish I had a landline so I could get a fabulous old phone. Would it be weird if I got one anyway and it wasn't connected to anything?

I also found this great tutorial to make an old coffee table into a bench.

This is the perfect project for all those inexpensive mid century coffee tables you come across!

Stay tuned for my latest thrifted finds tomorrow!

That room with the turquoise chandelier and the Saarinen table andchairs, is about as close to perfection as I've ever seen. Beyond stunning!

Great shots! I don't think that having a phone that doesn't connect is weird at all. My mom used to have one of the old school wood box phones that was on the wall which I loved.
