I mentioned in my 25 Things post here, that I love to scour my local Salvation Army home section for items that I can make my mark on. I do go other places besides the Sally Ann for my treasures. I like Moveline, garage sales, the odd HomeSense piece & the curb works for me too!
For those of you who don't know about Moveline, it is a warehouse that sells furniture that originated for major hotel chairs around North America.
Below are some of my treasures.
|I gold leafed this HomeSense tables steel base & finished the top with a multiple coats of high gloss white paint. It now sits in my family room.|
|I picked this up off the curb, it was in perfect condition. So, I upholstered the seat with a vintage fur jacket purchased from Kijiji & gave it a coat of black paint.|
|This pair of lamps came from a little shop in cottage country. I gave them a new coat of glossy turquoise paint, new crystals and white feather shades & quickly sold the pair!|
|This was my first Moveline purchase for $55. The chair was painted high gloss black & was upholstered in a Thom Filicia fabric with a black & white striped piping, it now sits proudly in my living room.|
|This stool had a beautiful wood carved base, but was well past it's prime. After some white paint and Lilly Pulitzer's Tail Lights fabric it's perfect.|
|This chair was from The Salvation Army I gave it lick of gold paint and a faux sheepskin upholstered seat. The same person who bought the stool above purchased this.|
I've broken this into a 3 part series, since I have so many pieces to share with you.
