Mother Modtomic's Crib. Nothing Like My Place But Really Really Cool Too. Status: Adorned And Bedecked.
This doesn't really "go" with most of what you'll see here but my mom rocks at turning a humble wood box into a beautiful home. She's also pretty handy with a tack hammer, thread and needle and paintbrush. Video "slide show" inside!
The Girlfriend and I dropped by my Mom's a couple days ago to gather with family
for a post holiday party. The place looked so nice I had to snap some pics to
share with everybody.
I wish I had half her motivation to transform ordinary thrift furniture and whatnot
into the beautiful accouterments of life. Me, I might have a good eye for a good
bargain in the retro world but I never buy anything thinking I'll re-purpose it or
transform it in much of any way. I can't see the potential like she can. Or if I can,
I'm to lazy to do much with the notion! I guess it's easy to see who got me into
Flea Markets, Antique Malls, Thrift Stores and other second hand sources!
