Metal Musings...

sometimes i wonder if i will ever get over my industrial, metal fascination?!?

and receiving this magazine in my mail box doesn't really help much...

and then packing around the magazine like a fourth child everywhere i go can't be good either...

sigh...

but this keeps calling my name...

oh to be able to cook in such a kitchen...*divine*...

maybe i would step out of my comfort zone of "cooking" hot dogs and macaroni and cheese...


Photobucket


you know i do have a good reason why that bookcase with a ladder should make an appearance in my kitchen...

it is called...

5'2" vertically challenged...


Photobucket

did i tell you i went to an estate sale where they had an authentic barn pulley exactly like the one above?!?...

{well minus the lights of course}...

i know...

some kind of weird reasoning made me shake my head no to paying more than $40.00?!?

i guess i would much rather pay $500.00 for a reproduction?!?

i can only blame it on...

well something...

there is simply no reasoning as to what i was thinking...

sigh...


Photobucket

and i do have a couple tractor seats that the husband could try and make look like that fabulous stool...

but really...

i mean look at that base...

maybe i should have become a metal smith...

i did take a welding class in high school once...

my box did hold water too...

so maybe right??!! ;0)

did i just hear someone say...like hell?!?

oh that was me...sorry...

sigh...

I think I would probably give my left pinkie toe for those stools. Seriously, the pinkie toe is not really very attractive and I don't NEED it like I NEED those stools.

Oh, BTW I'm having a give away for sosobella on my blog if you'd like to stop by!

Why would you want to get over it? Seriously...the look is timeless.
I say get you a welder's helmet and get after it. I must warn you though...tractor seats aren't all that comfortable!

I totally get it! Rest. Hard. makes me CRAZY! Did you see the secretary type desk made out of metal? I even have the perfect nook to slide it into so that I wouldn't have to stand at my kitchen counter when I'm on the computer anymore. However, it's very much a "fad" look I think and it's way to expensive to justify! So I will just stick to a few accessories that copy the look. But if I was rich....

Kristin,
I received this catalog in the mail last week and loved these things. The kitchen is fantastic and how much I want to replicate this light fixture.
Hugs, Sherry

haha! i always think you're hilarious...no one saying 'like hell' around here! :) my very favorite is the tractor seat stool....look at that base is right! gorgeous!

Anne Marie said...

you are too funny...my little sister and I go to art shows, and we have what we call "i can do that" syndrome

i saw this welded piece of art that was so cool...and i said (yup, you guessed it) "i can do that"

needless to say, there are no sparks flying here dang it!

i want that kitchen btw - makes me want to scrap mine and do it like that -

Robin said...

Feed the passion Kristin! I think the fabulous light fixtures would be oh. so. perfect.

Anna said...

So weird because I just got that magazine in the mail for the first time a couple weeks ago and I'm not sure how...but I loved it too and everything in it...so much in fact that I had to throw it away pretty much immediately not wanting to drain my retirement fund... :)
