Thanks, Libby!

The cart is from IKEA! We originally bought it in the turquoise color, but I'm enjoying it much more now in the navy. Easy to spray paint!

Good luck!

Thanks, Suzy! She is one of my favorite pieces. I got her for $10 at a field sale, and she is one of my favorite possessions - and my partner's least favorite...her name is Doris.

Thanks! I found the map at an estate sale.I think it's from a store but I can't track it down online. There are, however, lots of DIY tutorials for something similar!

Hi! I got my table and benches from Miss Pixie's in Washington, DC (www.misspixies.com). They are made from pine so they are super lightweight and functional. Pixie's always has farm tables and benches - sourced from the area from a very lovely farmer. Good luck!

I wish! I used to have a vintage apothecary cabinet, but it didn't make the most West. This one is from IKEA - one of my favorite IKEA finds ever! It comes in three different colors - cream (the one I got), mint green and grey. I love it!

Hi! Sure thing - it's a Valspar spraypaint (paint & primer in one) and it was SO easy to apply. The color is Indigo and the finish is satin. Good luck!

Hi there! The rug is from IKEA (I got it a few years ago but I believe it is still available!) - the tables unfortunately were purchased at an auction house so I can't say for sure what their provenance is....but luckily that style of side table is definitely in style so I'm sure there are many versions out there....Good luck!

Thanks! I got a lot of my goodies at Miss Pixie's Furnishings & Whatnot in Washington, DC - I worked there for three years before moving to Seattle. If you're on the East Coast, I highly suggest a stop there!

Hi Rob!

Good eye....I spray painted the cart between the first picture and the last! Same cart, different paint :)

Hi SJP,

I wish I knew the source of the stool....I got it from an auction in Eastern Maryland. However, the good news is that I am seeing Union Jack stuff all over the place! So you might come across one soon. Or you could grab some fabric and reupholster an existing ottoman!
