Stay tuned for the next round of projects – STARTING SOON!!! Here’s a little info about this the haul!
1. C.1930’s short boy armoire in solid oak!
We acquired the short boy armoire from a local thrift shop for $50 – woo woo.
My hubby had been eyeing this beauty for awhile now, unfortunately for the last month it had been priced at a whopping $200, so we waited patiently.
Finally the price was reduced and we snapped it up.
The piece is in really good condition except for the draw face – you guessed it – it has those pesky little bora residents………
You might say that we didn’t learn our lesson from the last do-up.
But I would have to counter that by saying – seriously, who could pass up a classy sophisticated piece of furniture. It’s only a teensy bit of work to replace a drawer front – roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!! 🙂
The rest of the piece is in aged but glorious condition.
Our idea for this piece is a full conversion from armoire to side board. Ideally this piece of furniture will be somewhere for our plates, crockery, and my stoneware/pottery collection to live.
Great furniture is a staple to any successful interior!
It is circa 1930’s in age, hubby and I look forward to starting this project next weekend!!
2. Moroccan Camel Leather Pouffe
I think I am a little too excited about this pouffe (brought for $2). Hubby thinks it’s gross and that it shouldn’t be in the house……. Whereas I see so much potential and LOVE IT – I sit and day dream of all the possibilities!!!!
I have a variety of leathers scraps in warm and cool hues, and I think I will save what I can on this piece and use some delicious chocolaty browns to give a colour of richness, depth and fabulous-ness! I just need to work out the pattern and the final look that I want…….
3. Last object of this treasure haul – a gorgeous tooled leather binder!!!!
Brought for $3 – What’s not to love???!!!!???!!??
Now all I need to do is to fill it with some treasured items and – BAM – gorgeous!
Good haul!! I am inspired to get into these projects right away. But alas, a new working week starts tomorrow so stay tuned as next weekend will be when the fun starts!!
