CANDICE TELLS ALL

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!

I found this vintage french dresser for $50 on craigslist

Do you like vintage pieces? What vintage item have you refurbished lately?


If you have a blog, please share a link to it in the comments section. If you don’t have a blog, send me a picture so I can highlight it here!

I'm a huge Candice fan. I did a recap of the show yesterday as an inspiration. You and Candice has that blue turquoise going. Its certainly is a great color.

First, thanks for filling in at a moments notice for the moonlite, but did you have to ask what vintage pieces have I refurbished lately? Well, I have tons of brass I've purchased. I am in the mist of trying clean it all, not an easy task

Oh yes, I am enjoying Candice's new show! And adore vintage, the last item I redid was a dresser of my grandmothers...love your dresser!

I do love the new show, too! It now reminds me a little of Sarah's show now that Candice is showing how to repurpose and refinish furniture. It really make her design versatility shine through.

PS So glad she got rid of the little corny sidebars she used to do in the old show. Great post!

I love this show, too. I've actually written about it twice recently:

I forgot to record that episode, I'll have to catch it the next time around. Candice always delivers but this room has a lot of elements that you could imitate on an affordable budget. I see chairs like the one you found at vintage stores frequently.

I love re-finishing pieces. There is nothing like giving new life to an old piece. I am currently re-doing a Queen Anne style sofa...daunting, but I am so excited about it!

I love Candice's new show and this was my favorite room so far! I love the great mix in the space. I haven't refinished any vintage pieces lately, but this makes me want to. (love yours btw). Happy Monday!

Thanks Lekietha for visiting my blog UniqueIllusions.weebly.com !! I love mirrors. LOL. I also love Candice and repurposing pieces. I love... well i can go on forever. I haven't caught up with her new show yet, but I'll get to it. I also saw ur post on chicmodernvintage... Don't you just love the closet space...

ps if you haven't had chance to read my response to the mirrors they are there...and I am still in Atlanta...

Love vintage -- and I think EVER room needs a vintage/antique piece or two to add some soul. I've repainting a credenza and spruced up a few MCM chairs, but most of my "vintage" pieces are hand-me-downs from my parents (some of which are family pieces and very nice some...notsomuch!).
