thrift store finds {before & after}

I picked up this little wooden cutting board for 50 cents at a thrift store a few months ago.

I gave it a coat of dark stain.....
I'm on the lookout for a few more cutting boards, as I eventually want to do something like this on the counter.....
nice way to keep cooking essentials handy without appearing as clutter
Another thing I picked up, was this vintage lantern....
I originally thought about whitewashing it or, you guessed it, putting some dark stain on it, but Peter suggested leaving it be, and I agree, it looks perfect as is!
I wanted something for the top of the armoire in our bedroom. It looks perfect there (I just need to add a candle)!

I found a similar lantern at Pottery Barn, of course, much more than what I paid.
