Feeling Farmy

Feeling Farmy

Does this table bring back some haunting 80’s memories for you?  It reminds me of my old childhood chum Anaya, whose mom was ALL ABOUT the 80’s decor.  Lot’s of black lacquer and neon lamps and “art” like this:

I thought she was like, the coolest thing since Wonderbread.  She also let us watch Pretty Woman at Anaya’s birthday party, which now that I think about it, was a strange choice for a bunch of 10-year-old girls. Julia Roberts DID made for such a likeable hooker though, didn’t she?

Anyway, that’s where this old console table belonged, firmly in the 80’s.  But Jessica from Stellar Junk brought it back to life with a charming country feel.  Hmm, from washed out 80’s star to plucky country girl?  I think I just cooked up a new Julia Roberts movie!

    That is great. We had a table like that back in the late 80’s and my mom busted out mauve paint in the 90’s and spruced that bad boy up. Ah the power of paint.

    My mom took me to see Pretty Woman in the theater when I was 10. I remember wanting to see it…probably because I didn’t know what a hooker was. lol

    You just brought back a FLOOD of 80s memories! My mom had like 5 Nagels (those crazy prints). I think she paid quite a bit for them from a gallery. And couldn’t give them away at a garage sale ten years later.

    Oh.My.WORD. I had this same exact table given to me! I hated it, and didn’t think anything could be done with it so I gave it away!

    Kickin’ myself in the butt after seeing this! It looks great!
