If you aren’t afraid to buy a vintage piece and reupholster it yourself then you may want to check out what I found on KSL today. If you find it too intimidating to do yourself there are plenty of good places that will do it for you, for a small fee of course. I love finding vintage furniture and giving it new life.
When buying vintage furniture look beyond the fabric or paint that is currently on the piece and envision what it could become. You need to make sure that the furniture is sturdy with no major defects. Focus in on the lines of the furniture and make sure that they meet your expectations.
Here are two awesome chairs that of course need a little work but paying someone to recover these will still be cheaper than if you bought these at a store. Plus you can pick the exact fabric that you want and customize the chair to be exactly what you need. Just imagine for a moment these chairs in a rad (I am really trying to incorporate this word back in to my vocabulary) fabric, remove the skirting at the bottom of the chairs and paint the legs a great high gloss color. Now the best part of all is that these chairs are listed for only $45 for the pair. Now that is a steal!
They could end up looking like this. Obviously I enjoy bold fabrics but you could do something more subdued.
With a little reupholstery magic you could transform this vintage couch into this modern beauty.
Don’t forget about the kids either when looking at vintage pieces. Only $20 for these vintage kids chairs. Some new paint on these and the kids would love them.
This piece I don’t think needs any work at all but I couldn’t leave it out. Such a good find. Berkley coffee table only $75!
