PROPS HAVE THEIR PLACES…RIGHT?

I have a lot to do to take this blog (and my business) to the level I dream of.  I see a lot of bloggers that reveal their finished pieces (of furniture) with a little bit of styling going on with the photos. 

Anywho, I came across these and thought immediately that they would be perfect in a photo with (insert whatever here).

My SIL thought they were great.  I thought they were great.  But really, what would I use them for when it comes to using them as a “prop”?  They were $6 for the set and in vintage condition which really means a little beat up but still capable of being loved! I probably should have just gotten them, but I need all the space I can get for my furniture collection.  Speaking of furniture collection, look at what else I found!

At another store I scored a pair of these bi-level end tables! The condition is pretty perfect if you ask me and I think they’ll look great after I finish with them.  I need to figure out a good color… Black? Turquoise? Coral?

Hmm…Hopefully I’ll figure out a color before the weekend.  I want these done by Monday!

The little suitcases could have been used to store the boys out-of-season clothes if you shoved them under their beds. I hate passing up on a good deal, but I know what you mean, there's only so much space.

I love the suitcases a lot can be done with those. I'm looking forward to seeing what color you decide to paint the end tables

That is a cute set of suitcases. I really like bi-level tables. I would love to see that one in turquoise! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I second the suggestion of painting the end tables turquoise. And I love those suitcases! They would look great under a white vintage desk as storage for books, art/craft supplies, clothes as someone else mentioned, you name it.
