Vintage Home In Your Home

Many of you bring photos when you shop at Vintage Home, so we can help you find just the right piece for your living room, dining room, bathroom, etc. (Seriously, what did we do before cell phones?!) And on occasion, we get to see pictures of how your room(s) turned out. I was so impressed with Pam Walsh's bathroom makeover, that I just had to share it with you.

Pam and her husband bought a vintage buffet and turned it into a custom vanity for their bathroom. They took the existing top off and replaced it with a soapstone countertop. But here's the best part: They turned the original buffet top into the frame for a mirror above the vanity. What a creative idea!

The vanity isn't the only custom piece that made it into this bathroom up-do: They also purchased a coordinating vintage dresser to use for extra storage and counter space. When I buy a house, I am definitely stealing this idea!

No matter what room you're looking to furnish, Vintage Home is a great place to shop. And when you finish, don't forget to bring pics! Who knows? You may just find your home in my next blog...

Before & After Vintage Home

You know what pieces look like after we refinish them, but do you ever wonder what they look like before they arrive at Vintage Home? I get to do a lot of work behind the scenes, so I can tell you this: Some pieces look pretty good, some could use a little work, and some--well, some look downright tragic. But with a little paint and some elbow grease, they all turn out pretty good (if I do say so myself!).

Over the last week, there have been several transformations that happened right in the shop. This vintage mahogany desk and chair had been given an at-home makeover in the 1960s using a do-it-yourself antiquing kit.

Fifty plus years later, I think furniture refinishing has come a long way--don't you? See this and more great makeovers right now at Vintage Home!

Stay tuned for more Vintage Home news, events, and Before & After snap-shots.

New Year, New Finds!

Happy New Year! This year I decided to try something different: I did NOT vow to lose weight like I do every January. Instead, I had Burger King for lunch on New Year's Day, and it was fantastic! Of course, that probably has more to do with the fact that I didn't feel guilty for breaking a promise to myself than the actual food.

I haven't given up completely on making New Year's resolutions. I did promise myself that I would finish decorating my apartment, and I'll do it...I think. If you've made a similar resolution, Vintage Home is a great place to start--for furniture, accessories, and inspiration!

Here are a few great new pieces that weren't here in 2013, and more are on the way.

I can remember when I used to say, "I wish we had a sofa to go with all these coffee tables." I never thought there would be a day when we had more than one. But with the arrival of the "Lola" sofa today, that makes three! I'm excited to see what happens next...

Of all the coffee tables we've had in the shop--and there have been a lot of good ones--I think this one is my favorite: Its simple, elegant, and eye-catching. Dress this glass top table up or down to match the style of your living room (or mine!)--its so versatile!

Not to be outdone, the "Montclair" wingback chair can make itself at home in almost any room in the house--your living room, study, or dining room. The scale is perfect for the head and foot of your dining room table, and its comfy, too!

This piece you may recognize, but you've never seen it look like this! Our favorite mango wood desk is back and looking better than ever with a soft, natural finish. With tons of work space and plenty of storage, the only thing else you'll need is a chair (and we have plenty of those, too!).

I get so excited about the furniture, that I sometimes forget to show off all the home decor that you can find at Vintage Home. This is a great place to find chandeliers, lamps, mirrors, artwork, and so much more! These original oil paintings have custom barn-wood frames you'll only find at Vintage Home--unless, of course, you take them to your home.

If the last two weeks are any indication, 2014 will be an exciting year to shop at Vintage Home. Some of my favorite new arrivals sold faster than I could put together a blog, so this year make sure to visit the shop often--I don't want you to miss a thing!
