My obsession with vintage furniture grows and my house feels like it is shrinking.  So… some items must find a new home!  I thought I would list a few things here and there on here for you to all check out.  Feel free to contact me with any questions!

1. Two vintage metal lawn chairs and matching table.  So adorable!  SOLD!

2. Vintage tin top cabinet.  We used this as our kitchen island.  This isn’t the best photo, but it also has lots of charm!  SOLD!


3. Vintage Danish modern chair.

A Few Items For Sale

Here are a few of our first big items for sale in the new shop.  There are a few others in the works that needed face-lifts, but these beauties were great as-is.  Let me know if you are interested, although these are awful large to ship.  Mid Century lovers should swoon for them!

***SOLD***

The cute little fiberglass chair is a gorgeous robin’s egg blue.  It says Krueger Metal Products, Green bay Wisconsin on its tag.  The hutch is gorgeous and spacious.  It has two shelves behind the glass door, two cupboards below, and three drawers, one of which has dividers.  The oval details on the doors are really cool.  The tag says Gibson Furniture Co. 

Let me know if you are interested! 🙂  And, stay tuned, there should be a MCM coffee table and a funky table and chairs by the end of the week as I get them cleaned up!

A Little Industrial

February 2, 2009 at 3:34 pm (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

One of my big obsessions right now is industrial furniture and decor. I know that some of you are probably thinking industrial seems too cold and uninviting. But, mixed carefully with the warm colors and textures of your home, even industrial items can be cozy! I have been looking for the perfect industrial cabinet for our kitchen. Right now prices seem to be soring for these items on Ebay and other websites, but come auction season, I bet we can snatch one up for a deal!

One website that I found with some very funky items is http://www.ergstore.com. This site has some great inspiration for industrial funiture, but also has some pretty steep prices. Some of the items I am currently loving:

A 1920's-30's doctor's chair.  I know, I love all crazy chairs, but this one would be a real conversation piece!

A 1930's- 1940's theater light. This would repurpose as a great lamp.

Another site with some very amazing pieces is Get Back, Inc. at http://www.getbackinc.com. Some of my favorites there are:

A metal and glass medical cart.  So what I am looking for!
