Well, in an odd way, it does.
See, as we find new accessories and furniture we are able to get rid of the rattier, crapified stuff, which makes the place look nicer, which in turn means that we are better about not letting crap build up.
The rules of acquisition are thus:
Does it have a use?
Will it have a "home"?
Do you love it?
Does it fit the budget?
Will you discard something else in order to bring it home?
If the answers are yes, then it's all good, if I answer no, it needs a bit more thought.
Since I did a major decluttering when we painted the loft, we were able to get a couple of accessories to replace those that were no longer...Us.
And yes, I do use the vintage glasswares, even the Pyrex mixing bowls That were a new in the box gift from my SIL a few years ago(thank you again Lisa!!!). What's the sense in having them if you aren't going to use them, Right? .
Is it perfect? No, It's scratched..fairly deeply on the front there, and the chrome knobs will be going sooner than later. But other than that it is *almost* what I was looking for in a tv stand. BUT it was $20! SO when it warms up it will go out to the garage for a makeover, and I will not bemoan the lack of shelves or drawers between the glass doors, nor will I cringe over the modern lines of the legs, because really? once it's painted and distressed with some awesome new knobs, I am going to LOVE it!
