I often get asked where I find all my furniture. I wish there was so magical spot I could refer you to but it is a constant search. I do find the majority of my furniture at garage sales, I get the best deals at garage sales. Most of the time people just want to get rid of their stuff so they are willing to negotiate or just have pieces marked low. The only problem ….. it is too cold here in the winter to have garage sales so in the winter I hit the thrift stores and search the classifieds as mush as I can.
I love to look for old furniture with lots of character and I when I find the perfect piece I can’t pass it up. However my collection is growing faster then I can keep up so I need to either find a storage unit or refinish faster.
I found these 3 pieces at a thrift store. The larger c one is a record holder. The 4 drawers are actually one big door that opens up. The little chest has 2 drawers on the bottom and the top opens up, and I loved the legs on the top table so it had to come home with me too!
This drop leaf table is so darling and old! When I found it at a garage sale it was covered in 3 coats of old paint. I stripped it all down, it is all primed and ready for a fresh coat of paint.
A friend of mine found this beautiful dresser…..and of course I couldn’t pass this piece up. I have held on to it until I found the perfect thing to do with it.
I found this chair at a thrift store, I love old upholstered chairs. They look so cute refinished with new ruffled skirts.
I found 4 of these chairs on our local classifieds. I love their style and they look so cute upholstered over the old upholstery in the center.
