I love looking for furniture that has had their better days and now need a "facelift"....I started this "hobby" quite by accident and have found that I.LOVE.IT. People are actually buying this furniture ~ WOW. If you have something that you have made YOUNIQUE ~ pls send me a picture so I can post it ~ I really would love to hear from YOU!
A few weeks back I was out at one of my favorite antique shops in the Heights ~ its called Grace Hart & Company ~ they have everything from glass, jewelery, furniture, antiques, lamps, etc. ~ you get the idea. That day I was really out looking for something different. As I walked into the shop, this precious piece is outside screaming "take me home" ~
I knew when I saw it that it had to be mine ~ the price was a little high but I REALLY wanted this. Normally if something is overpriced, I can walk away from it ~ but this piece I loved. Why? Well, could it be because I knew that "back in the days" (in my younger days)......I always wanted one of these to sit down and talk on the phone on. My parents had a phone but we never had one of these ~ so, now that I can buy my own things, why not? So, I brought her home and named her RUMOR ~ I changed the color and reupholstered the seating area. Here is RUMOR now:
I think she looks a little more modern now ~ don't you think? I have her on sale for $125 so we shall see how long she lasts ~
