Happy Monday guys! Today I'm guest posting over at Chic Modern Vintage. Check me out!
So I’ve already told you guys that I’m a HUGE Candice Olson fan. And last night’s episode of “Candice Tells All” made me fall more in love with her!
Do you see the sofa that she is sitting on? Well that was a vintage sofa that the homeowners didn’t want her to get rid of. So she had it upholstered it in in that fabulous blue fabric that you see and had the wood painted white. Like seriously, it brought the piece all the way into the 21st century!
Here is an image of most of the room
You can’t see the sofa too good in the above image (its in the left corner), but look at those chairs that she had painted white and reupholstered in that funky paisley fabric! The chandelier (which was fine already) was brass and she had it sprayed white which upped the wow factor. The art above the sofa is a mixture of old and new. I love how she used brass frames and white frames! There was also a china cabinet that she had the top part removed and she painted the buffet portion a beautiful shade of blue to coordinate with the other blues in the room.
You guys already know that I like to mix old and new pieces together in a space. This space is a true example of how when it comes to designing a room, EVERYTHING does not have to be new. I have a chair very similar to the pair featured above that I got from goodwill for like 26 bucks! New fabric and spray is all it needs!
(ignore the paint on the floor)
I found this vintage french dresser for $50 on craigslist
and this one too that you guys love!
(ignore the missing knob!)
Do you like vintage pieces? What vintage item have you refurbished lately?
