Remember my New Year’s resolution to get things organized? Well, things were going really well. I donated 80 lbs of clothes, sold furniture on craigslist, recycled piles of paper, but all of a sudden I had space in the garage… So, what did I do? I filled it up again… Oops. This time only with furniture, but still. I think I may have a problem. I can’t seem to say no to furniture with good lines and a cheap price tag.
Check these nightstands out. They could go either way, but with the right styling, they could totally be rock and roll in the style of the Novogratz, or they could go all Hollywood Regency glamour in the style of Wearstler. I have absolutely no need for them, but at a mere $7 I just had to have them.
Next up, these two ottomans. Nice mid century peg legs with brass caps. Put mid century and brass in one sentence and I doubt any designer would say no. The two came to $75. Not super cheap. But for distinct mid century style, I still think that’s not bad.
Lastly, these faux bamboo chairs. Can you say FREE? Yep, that’s right, free. I’m 100% sure these are by American of Martinsville, though the seats have been reupholstered and with that the tags are gone. They are exactly like these. I was driving around and found them. I plan to refinish and reupholster them and put them up for sale on Craigslist in order to pay for my addiction to thrifting. Not bad?!
All this furniture for well under $100. SCORE! If I keep finding pieces like this I may have to open up a shop. 😉
In other news, I’ve started to take on a couple of design clients and am helping them with their design plans/remodels.
