A Cheetah Share & Wow was it at a an Heirloom Gift

I'm excited to join Cindy at My Romantic Home for her Show & Tell Friday today. If you love animal print and heirlooms, you'll enjoy my recent adds to my Master Suite and a gift that I put together for my mom and sisters. Please stop by Cindy's to enjoy all the other Show & Tell items today.
I couldn't resist sharing my After Christmas special that I found at a local Antique store, one of my favorites, "A Flea Antique" located in Braselton, GA. The chairs and table in this post were purchased there recently for a "steal of a deal". The framed heirloom butterfly doily is something I framed for my Mom and sisters recently. The doilies were made by my Grandmother over 40 years ago...and they were all butterflies. They each love them and I used different color mats for each person to match their decor. My mom wanted hers on this black velvet!
Here's the table close up...the top had been distressed with a black paint...totally what I needed in this spot of my master bedroom.

A close up of the pair of Italian chairs - wood frames made in Italy and the upholstery work was done in USA per the label on the bottom of the chairs.

Some details on the wood here...

And there...

This table drops down and doesn't have to be in the open position constantly. I love it... The table was under $50 and the chairs were purchased as a pair for under $60 - Yes, you heard me right~ It was a huge blessing and find to add to our room!

The centerpiece is one I purchased at a favorite local consignment shop called "Emma's Attic" in Flowery Branch, GA. A huge savings ~ only $10 and still had the price tag on the inside of a flower for $129. The doily (handmade) was just purchased there yesterday for $1.50.

Here's the entire view as I sit from my bed~ I have a hint of Cheetah here and there in my room...and this brought it all together even better! The entire corner makeover was realized at a total of $121.50! My kinda makeover~ :)

`Merci for stopping by today~Have a blessed day!

And sweet framed butterflies for you family, I know they were a hit.

CC~ the only thing that tops a great find is the Grrreat reveal.
I've always wanted a folding pedestal table. They're so handy and easy to store, can't ask for more than that.

Thanks for strolling by. Your company is always appreciated.
